Diego Mini, one of the Peru players who visited Badminton Europe's Centre of Excellence last week believes it was an inspirational time.

Over the past week and a half, Badminton Europe’s Centre of Excellence (CoE) has had some different players attending Holbæk as well as the CoE group fo players.

Towards the end of March 2019, the Peru National team have been staying at Badminton Europe’s Centre in Holbæk and practising with the CoE as they prepare for some important tournaments, including the Finnish Open.

An inspiring place to be

Diego Mini speaking to Badminton Europe after the period of training in Holbæk praised the coaches and the player's efforts in practice.

Mini was quick to complement the high intensity of the training and believes that it is inspiring watching the effort that is made by the players.

“The CoE was an amazing experience,  watching everyone putting in every inch of effort is inspiring.

“The training is so complete with different variations, I have learnt so much and I cannot wait to come back some other time,” Diego Mini said.

Europe attracting Worldwide customers

Despite Badminton Europe servicing their own continent, the centre has clearly picked up over the past year and is now attracting interest from across the world.

The Peru team were not the first country to come and train at the centre though, prior to their visit, members from the Finland national team and two players from Russia also have been using the centre as they prepared for some important tournaments in February.

With the centre growing day by day, Michael Nørbæk, Senior Manager at Badminton Europe is hoping that it can continue in the right direction.

“I really hope that we can attract more nations to come and train with us, not only at the centre in Holbæk but at our Certificated Training Centres around Europe (CTC).

“We have eleven right now but the aim is the sky, we want to improve it a lot and I believe we can do that,” Michael Nørbæk said.
