First thing's first, here it is:

Today we're very excited to let you all know that we are releasing a podcast, The Badminton Podcast, which will be live at 6pm! What I'd like to do in this post is to let everyone know why we decided to start this podcast, what it's all about and how you can get involved too.

You're probably already aware that we started Volant Wear, a badminton-inspired clothing brand in Melbourne. The reason that we started the brand is because we want to make badminton a more mainstream, popular and celebrated sport in the world. We don't think that it gets the recognition that it deserves. Just look at the prize money in tennis compared to badminton!

People often know about the sport (as a backyard or beach sport), but they don't understand what it takes to be good at the sport, and how amazing the world's best badminton players are. 

Outdoor Badminton

Our vision is simple: to show the world how incredible badminton is. And in doing so, we want to empower badminton players and fans to grow and share their love for the sport.

We plan on doing that in several ways, which includes changing the way badminton looks (through our Volant Wear clothing range) and building a community that teaches badminton players how to be better at their game and at life (us included!).

As such, we are starting The Badminton Podcast, where we interview badminton players (professional & social) to talk about what they love about the sport, what they've learnt from it and how it has impacted their life. But rather than only talk about badminton, we also want to give our listeners value in their lives also - whether personal or professional. We know there are plenty of players in the badminton community who may or may not be successful badminton players but are also experts in various other fields; we would love to share their insights with listeners to assist in their development in sports, careers and life as well.

If you are a badminton player with an area of expertise that you'd like to share with our community, please get in touch with us! Also, if there are any topics you'd like for us to discuss or players that you would like to see on our podcast, please comment below! 

We look forward to sharing our podcast with you soon.

We'd love to hear your opinions, comments, tips and tricks so please feel free to comment below. If you would like us to write about something in particular, please let us know!
