fiona.jpg Fiona Cameron UKCC Level 1 Advanced I coach at Musselburgh. This is now my second season at LDBC and during that time I have achieved my Level 1 and Level 1 Advanced coaching qualifications.
I have been playing competitive badminton almost my entire life and competed at County level back in my heyday! Badminton has always been such a huge part of my life and I thought it was time to give something back to the sport. I started, a number of years ago, coaching at a local primary school and when the opportunity arose to join LDBC, I considered it a fantastic chance to not only develop my coaching skills but to help others gain new skills.
As a coach at the Club, my aim is to help players improve but mostly want them to enjoy badminton as much as I do. The best thing about coaching at the Club is the players enthusiasm. There is nothing they cannot do or achieve and they are, quite simply, inspirational. It's a fun club and everyone is always smiling!

 I decided to get involed with the LDBC when I heard that the Bathgate club was looking for volunteers and put my hand up!
 My goal is to see the players enjoy their badminton and improve their skills at the same time. For any coach to see players they are working with improve and enjoy their sport is a bonus and I see this every week at the club,  It's a really positive experience.
