Frank – Ferenc Szekely

Head coach of the network

I`m a qualified and registered UKCC Level 2 Coach in Badminton with more than 25 years of experience competing and coaching in the central European regions and leagues in the UK. I live in Lymm, Statham, with my 2 daughters and wife. I started the sport quite lately, at the age of 14. My partner and I won the National School Competitions Capital City Selection and the Country Final in doubles discipline at the age of 17. I`ve got many years to play in a First Class University club in Budapest and became an international player for a short period of time. I have retired in 2006 due to injuries and a lack of funds. During my career, I have discovered the importance of mentality and become a lover of sports psychology. I continuously update my coaching style to meet the 21st century’s requirements according to my current self-studies and findings. Here are my up-to-date qualifications:

  • UKCC L2 Badminton Coach
  • CIMSPA – ReActivate Sport Clubs Safely
  • Level 5 Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor
  • UK Coaching – Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults
  • UK Coaching – Mental Health Awareness for Sport and Physical Activity
  • BWF Online Shuttle Time Component
