Sixteen year old Ethan has an impressive array of medals and titles to his name already but this success comes from a determined drive to achieve which also shows in his studies.
“I have been playing badminton since I was 4 years old. I am a nine-time National Junior Champion, European U15 Silver medallist as well as U17 6 Nations Bronze medallist. This year I won the U19 National Championships and I am now competing on the Senior World Tour. I completed my GCSEs 18 months early and I am now competing full time on the tour whilst studying my A levels.”
From first picking up a racket aged three on a Centre Parcs holiday with his parents, Ethan has come a long way. His next target is competing in the Under 17 European Championships in August.
With training six hours a day, six days a week and fitting in A level studying, Ethan is definitely one to watch!
