Peter Gade hosts UK masterclass as part of YONEX Legends' Vision initiative

Date
29 October 2019

Team Yonex legend Peter Gade paid a visit to the UK this weekend to host a badminton masterclass as part of the Yonex Legends' Vision initiative. The event, hosted at Wycombe Badminton Centre, saw Peter delight a big crowd across two sessions as he delivered several workshops for a fascinated audience.

The day began with Peter and former World #1 and double European gold medalist Huaiwen Xu working with the Wycombe Performance squad on a number of facets of the Badminton game, from forms of defence and attack to drop shots and smashes. In the afternoon, a crowd of over 100 joined the pair as they ran a coaching workshop aimed at all abilities. Famed for his notorious skills of deception on the court, Peter showed off some of his more daring shots much to the amazement of the audience, who then got to have a go themselves. As well as this, the participants got to have a try at the Rapid Fire Challenge and Steep Attack Challenge, with prizes awarded to the winners of both, before Peter participated in a Q&A. 

Supported by Yonex, The Legends’ Vision initiative promotes a greater awareness and increased participation in badminton. The Legends’ Vision aim is to give something back to the places where World Tour and Legacy Tour events are staged – leaving a lasting legacy for the generations to come, to be inspired and become more involved in the sport that The Legends love so much.

We’d like to thank Wycombe Badminton Centre and all of their team for hosting such a great event. A huge thanks also to Peter and Huaiwen for attending and passing on their experience to the future stars English Badminton.
