Jan-Willem Kuipers

In 2018 Jan-Willem started as a badminton trainer at the DSBA-USSR. He has been working as a badminton trainer at X since September 2019. In his lessons, the focus is on the technique of the strokes in badminton. After learning the correct techniques, the focus moves to tactics that can be used to dominate the field. At the end of each training session, you will immediately apply the lessons learned from that lesson in a match with the other players.
