Having all these teachers on court really makes me very optimistic about the future of Badminton in Cyprus. I feel we are on the right track. “ – Efthymios Polydorou, President of Cyprus Badminton Federation
“After our first encounter and the experience we gained, we are in a position to further develop our plan and possibly include other activities beyond seminars so that we assure teachers’ involvement with badminton. (One of them to be a monthly teacher’s practice with club coaches’ guidance and a Teacher’s Tournament twice a year)” – Saber Afif, National Coach of Cyprus
“We would like to really thank CBF for such a thorough and fantastic organization. We had the best comments coming from our members participating the Shuttle Time seminar. We wish that other federations would follow your example.” – Socrates Philippides, Teacher’s Association Council Member
