British badminton has had its problems. Earlier this summer, those in charge outlined to BBC Sport the steps they hope will put things right. Now, during this week's World Championships at Wembley Arena, we may see whether that plan is starting to work.
In-fighting between top players and a lack of leadership sent the sport plunging from the high of Olympic silver at Athens 2004 to the low of being told by former star Gail Emms - one half of that silver medal - to expect nothing at their home Games in 2012.
Badminton England, which runs a national training centre in Milton Keynes and is responsible for most of the British stars preparing for 2012, subsequently asked for a chance to demonstrate to us that things are changing.
