Our very first ABC Junior Coach, Boyd Tahtat will be hosting a Junior class starting September 6. Welcome back Coach Boyd!

Boyd currently hosting the 12 sessions Adult camp.

Welcome to American Badminton Center (ABC)

This is an initiative to create badminton champions and promote the growth of badminton as a premier Olympic sport in Dallas and its suburbs. Our voluntary efforts for the past 20 years have seen significant increase in local badminton clubs, tournaments, quality of players and demand for coaching. However, formal and structured training for children were still lacking. Hence, our passion for promoting badminton, in conjunction with this specific need, propel us to start this venture with the expectation that the badminton community will be well served. The primary goal ABC is to provide a "badminton home" for children of Dallas/Fort Worth to train and acquire all disciplines necessary to be a Champion not only in the courts, but ......... also in life.

There are 3 levels of Junior training to meet the various levels of players.

Level 1 and Elite is led by Coach Carl who is the founder of this center. Coach Carl, from Malaysia, started playing at a young age of 5. He has won many Southern and Texas tournaments and quickly found his passion in coaching children of all levels. He is funny, creative, firm and loves kids.

Level 2 Training is led by Coach Nibu who hails from the southern most tip of India which has a reputation of spawning out world class players for the India sub-continent. He was the captain for his college team and has won numerous tournaments in and around Dallas neighborhood. His specialty is introducing kids to the wonderful world of Badminton.

Level 2 Training is led by Coach Adam, one of the top coaches at a badminton center in Jiangsu, China. He coached in China for over 8 years with special focus on youths age 5 – 12. Coach Adam's dream is to share the Chinese training style with the US students.

As for us, like you, we are badminton enthusiasts with over 40+ years of badminton experience . We have two teenagers children who compete at the US Junior National level and have represented the United States. We have seen first-hand how a little training can make a BIG impact in the skill and interest of children. We believe, we have a responsibility to bring up the next generation of badminton enthusiasts, and what better way to do that than to provide an organized training center with emphasis on children and their badminton development.

We hope you could help spread the excitement and together bring out the best of all our children.

Please join us in our march! As always, thank you for your support and suggestions.

Allysa and Carl Khor
