Sport England TASS Helping Talent
shine in education and sport

“Trying to succeed in both elite sport and education is not easy. Training and competing whilst studying for a degree is challenging. The TASS team at Oxford Brookes have helped me by providing extra strength and conditioning and a wide range of lifestyle support. Knowing there is ready access to an excellent support team is really important.”

“TASS has helped me to continue to develop as an athlete with financial support helping me to fund tournaments. The support from Loughborough has helped me to continue to improve in many crucial areas off the badminton court. ”
