Level Up - Simply Sport
Badminton Excellence Program (LSBEP)
Simply Sport and Level Up Badminton Academy have joined hands 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, and the Excellence Program was set up to address it. Former National champion Arvind Bhat is spearheading it with support from our donors to find and create a pool of talent that can play at the highest level.
This high-performance centre in Bangalore, in association with Level Up Badminton Academy, will cater to training elite-level players. The program's vision is to put a player from the high-performance centre at the 2028 Olympics.
The professional state-of-the-art badminton academy will be operated by ex-Indian badminton player Arvind Bhat. The academy will be based in Bangalore, a hotbed for the sport of badminton in India.
