Badminton Europe produced the sport's first lifestyle web series bringing you bite-size badminton features of top European shuttlers to be broadcasted on its official Youtube channel.
The 13th episode of "Smashing Stars" has been published. In the latest episode, our European top stars reveal to us what they always wanted to be if not a professional badminton player.
Want to know what is in your favourite European player's bag or see them unleash their bags of trick shots? "Smashing Stars" will unveil the young rising stars in Europe and get off-court with some of Europe's brightest badminton talents. Hear how they got started in the sport, what keeps them going today and answer tongue-in-cheek fan questions.
"The web series is a fun and innovative way for fans to get to know our European stars", says Badminton Europe General Secretary Brian Agerbak.
