Anthony Nguyen - President of Plumfoot Provence-Alpes-Côte d´Azur 's speech :
"A sport still confidential in France, but well known in Asia, Shuttlecock/Plumfoot started in Europe with Hungary and Germany in the lead. It is our turn to launch the development of a discipline in France.
On November 11, 12 and 13, we were given a great opportunity to distinguish ourselves on the sports plan and also to promote Plumfoot at the village of sport Oxylane-Village of
Bouc-Bel-Air, for this very first European Cup organized in France.
After our participation in the World Championship in China from July 8 to 14, we have better marked our position against the best Europeans in the discipline. With a 3rd place on the podium, the first for France, we are among the best Europeans. Let’s continue relentlessly to the first place.
I am thinking above all of the incredible emulation that this event aroused among our very young people. Indeed, our juniors have recently become serious hopes for our expansion and the titles national, European and global that we need to get.
The next generation is engaged, the future is in our hands.
Let's play well and good smashes"
