The seminar is organised for various essential reasons vital to the growth and dissemination of Badminton in The Gambia.

The training is specifically designed for players to help build their knowledge and sensitise them on the importance and benefit of the sport.

Coaches and players were also trained on badminton's internationally recognised rules and ethics.

Participants were also given insights on organisational means to achieve better outcomes.

Playing the sport is one thing but understanding its importance and benefits is the most important thing, according to officials.

In addition, officials said the training would also help both coaches and players to work together as a team to achieve high performance.

 “To succeed in such a sport and gain international recognition, the universally recognised rules must be adhered to and observed,” they also said.
