About your instructor:
Eitan Waldman took up the game of badminton while completing his master of economics degree at Queen’s University.  He arrived in Ottawa in 2010 to take a position with Natural Resources Canada.  He enjoys hiking, bicycling and shooting pool.

On his arrival in Ottawa, he began attending the JPRA Badminton Program and became its coordinator in 2012.  He believes that the number one rule in playing the sport is to have a fun.  He provides some basic instruction but in a friendly, use-what-advice-you-want manner.
