Badminton Excellence Program 

Simply Sport Foundation has launched the Badminton Excellence Program to address the sudden drop-off in talent emerging from Karnataka. The lack of state-of-the-art training facilities was identified as the main problem. In association with the Simply Sport Foundation, the Badminton Excellence Program was set up at Sarjapur, Bangalore, to address the same. Former National champion Arvind Bhat is spearheading the program with support from our donors to find and create a pool of talent that can play at the highest level.
