Para-Badminton Championships set to get underway

The 4 Nations Para-Badminton Championships make a return to Scotstoun this weekend with Scottish players looking to continue their excellence from 2017.

Last year’s edition – held at Motherwell’s Ravenscraig for a fifth year in a row – saw the home nation triumph in 13 of the 28 events contested, with wins for, among others, Fiona Christie, Aimee Allan and Karen Lyttle.

And a change of venue, back to Scotstoun Leisure Centre in Glasgow, sees three more events in the schedule to be fought for over four categories, with 80 players from across the UK having entered.

Learning Disability (LD), SS6, Standing and Wheelchair players will all have their chance to shine over the three days of competition.

The LD men’s and women singles events get going tonight, having received an excellent entry comprising of no less than six men's singles divisions.

And with almost 30 volunteers and officials ensuring the smooth running of the event over three days, the weekend will climax with finals on Sunday and BADMINTONscotland’s President Ian Campbell presenting the prizes.
