MEGA SMASHER Foundation Inc. is known to its advocacy on promoting badminton in the country and help less fortunate players to continue striving for their dreams to become a badminton athlete thru MEGA SMASHER’s Athletic Scholarship Program – a project of MEGA SMASHER Foundation Inc. which aim is to aid players with proper training, equipment and gears that will hone their skills and prepare them for local badminton tournaments. This program has been running for almost 3 years already and is continuously scouting for dedicated and committed badminton players whose dream is to become an athlete someday.
Jacinto “Jack” De Leon Maliwat is a student from Ateneo De Manila University and current UAAP Badminton player. He has been with MEGA SMASHER Scholarship Program for almost 2 years and is continuously maintaining his rank under Team A. Because of his love to badminton, he explored the possibilities to train club players until he became one of the scholar coaches of Dunlop Training Program organized by MEGA SMASHER. Jack showed that being an athlete doesn’t mean only that you are good in your sport, and you can compete, but also you should have a heart for those who wish to learn and be like him.
And just like Jack, their Team Coach King Arthur Espiritu is as active as him in the badminton scene especially in local tournaments. He participates in a lot of tournaments nationwide and most of the time, he brings home the medal or trophy with him. King has been dedicated in this sport since he was young, and a lot of opportunities came his way especially in coaching when he joined MEGA SMASHER. Currently, he is the Team Coach of the MEGA SMASHER Athletic Scholarship Program and is currently handling the Dunlop Intensive Training Program organized by MEGA SMASHER.
These two newly appointed Brand Ambassadors are proven a good example of an athlete because of their passion, dedication, and commitment in keeping the badminton sport alive not only by participating in local games but also in spreading education to those who wish to learn and are dreaming to become future athletes.
With the help of Dunlop Philippines, MEGA SMASHER can now further assist more aspiring players and enhance their game play with all the sponsored equipment that Dunlop Philippines provided for MEGA SMASHER Scholarship Program. This also means that MEGA SMASHER will increase the number of scholars in its foundation and influence more players to spread the love in Badminton.
