FORMER national shuttler Ronald Susilo is embarking on the next stage of his career, with the opening of his own badminton academy.

The 30-year-old, who retired from the national team last month, has set up the Ronald Susilo Badminton Academy (RSBA) at his alma mater, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent).

As a former Olympian and having been ranked as high as world No. 6, Susilo hopes to impart his wealth of knowledge and experience to a future generation of shuttlers.Ronald Susilo

 

He said: "This academy has been my dream for some time now and it is the next obvious step in my life."

It plans to offer unique training programmes, designed to suit players of all ages and different objectives.

Susilo said: "Some people want to take up badminton as a hobby, while others dream of winning an Olympic medal. It is unfair to train them the same way.

"I have developed three different programmes to help them turn their dreams into reality."

He will lead the coaching staff, which is made up of both home-grown and foreign former national players.
