The GB World Class Performance Programme.
4 years on since funding partner UKSport introduced a Great Britain World Class Performance Programme the objective to identify and drive the very best badminton talent across all the home nations to achieve medal success on at world level remains as strong as ever.
Led by Jens Grill (Performance Director), the World Class Performance Programme funds the training and international competition programmes of the British players considered to have the potential to deliver success at the highest level of the sport.
The Programme is divided into 2 distinctive groups:
- World Class Podium
Players who have either medalled at past World or Olympic events or have potential to produce medals at this level within the next 4 years.
- World Class Development
This level of the programme features players supported due to their longer term potential and who have demonstrated the ability, determination and aspiration to perform at this level in the future.
