Badminton Boot Camp 2005


Introduction

A badminton club in Malaysia is opening its doors to international trainees. We are targeting players who currently have grounding in the game of badminton and are aiming to progress further; our aims are to fundamentally enhance and evolve the systematic training the individual currently undertakes and expose them to the Malaysian way of training. The club is targeting actively competitive squad players who are committed and interested in improving the level of their game.

Competitive players are encouraged to join as the geographical advantage of Malaysia to regional satellite and open tournaments such as Vietnam, Thai, Indonesia, Malaysia Satellites and Opens.

The club trains fulltime up to 6-7 hours a day and the club has been producing national level players at the age group and now the open category. They are a very committed group and the elite squad coaches are fulltime at the club and venue. They are assisted by state level players as well by hired help from Indonesia from time to time.


AST Badminton Team was formed in February 1996 by Steeve Koh and Tan Boon Bin to conduct development of badminton as a competitive sport. The team progressed further when AST Badminton Club was registered in 2003 with the Kota Kinabalu Registrar of Society, Sabah. The club actively conduct training programs the year through to develop the game for the state and has been producing state players at age groups and the open category. Latest success is the grooming of a local lad into the national backup squad.
