Hi Badminton lovers!

Welcome to BadmintonProfessor.com

BadmintonProfessor is a site dedicated to everything relating to badminton. From how-to guides and in-depth knowledge on different badminton topics to the latest gears review. Congrats! You have just discovered the ultimate resource site for badminton players.

My name is Lorraine, I myself is a ski and snowboarding instructor working in Niseko, Japan. I started playing badminton 6 years ago and I just fell for this amazing flying sport, normally I would spend my June to Oct teaching in Australia or New Zealand, but then since I loved badminton so much that I started teaching in the Guangzhou Indoor Ski Resort in China from June 2019.

Well, as you can imagine, it’s a bit difficult to find a badminton court near the mountain area, right? So yeah… its definitely less fun to teach in an indoor ski resort than in the real mountain, but hey, just like playing badminton, you gotta find your balance point, right? At the end of the day, I can still enjoy my November to April in Niseko, right?

Why Did We Start BadmintonProfessor?

The first 2 months I started playing badminton, I liked it, but honestly, that’s just because I was enjoying the whole package – hanging out with friends, doing some sports, enjoying some good beers and food, lots of good laughs. Could be any types of sports… tennis, basketball, squash… doesn’t have to be badminton. Well, just because my friend was so into badminton so I will play with them.

One evening, my friends and I played badminton and followed with a quick dinner, and we bumped into his instructor Roy, and Roy’s coach!!! (TSE, Bun) in that restaurant, so we sat all together during that evening and for sure we talked about badminton. That was just… so much fun, just like the first time I rode down the big white mountain!

That quick dinner turned into a 5 hours dinner and it changed everything! I’ve learned so much from it!!! About everything, the world’s best players, skills, training method, gears… 

Next morning I decided to join my friend and learn badminton properly, that’s the real start of my love story with badminton. So yeah, you can see how much a great instructor could change your life being a badminton player!

That’s why I invited TSE, Bun to start BadmintonProfessor.com, so we can share our passion and knowledge for badminton with our readers.
