On Thursday, Mia Blichfeldt participated in Badminton Europe’s Women’s Singles Camp in Holbæk. 

More than 14 girls have been spotted at the Stenhus Gymnasium hall in Holbæk on Thursday. Female players from Bulgaria, Sweden, Slovakia, Spain, France, the Netherlands, England as well as Denmark have been practising together on Day 3 of the camp.

- It is not so often that we can practice and talk together. I enjoy being here, Mia Blichfeldt said after the training session.


Competing with Asia 

Badminton Europe’s Women’s Singles camp is getting underway since Tuesday and will be finishing on Sunday. The goal of one week of hard training: Increasing the level of European female players.

- We have to help each other to get better. When I am in Asia, all the players are working together and practise together. But we are not so many players in Europe as they are in Asia. That is why it is so important that we are working together here, Blichfeldt said.


Peter Gade in Holbæk

Next to Denmark’s national coach, Kim Nielsen, Peter Gade was leading the training session at Badminton Europe’s Centre of Excellence on Thursday. 

- He has been a very successful player. It is the first time, I have practised with him. It was very nice to work with him today, Blichfeldt said.
