Women shouldn’t jump smash? EBA players are proving gender stereotypes wrong with the help of a special guest!

The girls of Edinburgh Badminton Academy have been practicing their jump smash all week, and today they received a very special video message from Olympian and European Champion Lauren Smith! 🥇

It is fantastic to have a top player supporting this initative and giving our young players something to aspire towards! To change outdated ideas and fight against sexist coaching ideas we need to make a concious effort to speak up.

At EBA, we say no to stereotypes, and yes to playing badminton however we want. We can’t wait to see our players putting their jump smashes into practice soon!
