We are excited to announce that our national coach, Mrs Gloria Pirvanescu has completed and officially received earlier this year, the BWF Coach Level 3 Certificate.

BWF Coach Education Level 3 is a Specialised Coaching Award, aimed at badminton coaches who are interested in high-level youth coaching or in elite coaching.

The course has been an amazing journey for Gloria.

The first part was organised in Holbaek, Denmark in September 2018, where experts from BWF delivered the course face to face for a week.

After this, a six-month project work was required to pass the final assessment.

Due to Covid19, the whole process was prolonged, but the certificate was finally received in March 2021.

The Cyprus Badminton Federation and our National Coach, hope that the experience of these 2 years’ course will enhance the overall development of our athletes in the National Team.
