Community impressions

If you want to play badminton in a friendly environment where the coach teaches you skills you never had and are yet to learn, then you should join Sam. His classes are fun yet give you a real workout at the same time. Sam brings a great where you want to learn and push yourself to be your best - Harbinder

As a personal coach, Sam quickly identified areas of improvement and immediately developed a plan that enhanced my game within just a matter of weeks. Through fun, enjoyment, and lots of laughter, Sam was able to get the best out of me as my technique improved week by week. - Judy

I've been playing badminton on and off for many years but most recently bad technique and incorrect form meant I was putting a lot of excess unnecessary effort on my shoulder which caused an injury. Sam has been amazing in rehabilitating that injury, correcting my form and teaching me new techniques to further prevent injury and better my game! Each session I see myself getting stronger and my own personal flare in-game coming through! Sam has a wealth of knowledge, a large array of bad dad jokes, and is a top coach  I am very grateful! - Kiran

We highly recommend Sam for badminton lessons/coaching.  He is an inspiring coach, extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and supportive - we always learn so much from each session. My footwork is improving together with a technique for more powerful shots and more effective serves. Thank you so much for all your efforts!! (I attend the Improvers lessons Sunday 2-4pm and regular private badminton lessons with my family) - Rijia​​

Sam Kumar is a brilliant coach. I had played as a child but returning decades later, I was very rusty. My agreed goal was to improve and to be accepted into a specific club. A few months of weekly group training sessions and I was accepted into 2 quality clubs, started playing league matches and had a taste of a Masters county tournamnet. He has been there through my journey guiding and encouraging me, giving me the confidence to take on new challenges that I wouldn't have without his support. Sam's a natural coach, and has the ability to make you laugh and realx while learning new skills. I would personally recommend Sam if you want someone personable who can help you make a difference in your game - Georgina​​
