Yonex Scottish National Championships
Scotland’s best badminton players will be serving up a treat in Perth at the end of this week.
The Yonex Scottish National Championships return to Bell’s Sports Centre from Friday to Sunday, 5th – 7th February.
Local interest comes in the form of doubles specialist Patrick MacHugh from Kinross, who will be looking to retain his title with partner Martin Campbell.
The high profile event will also see Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games silver medalist Kirsty Gilmour attempt to clinch her 5th successive trophy.
And there will be a final hurrah for Imogen Bankier, who announced her retirement from international badminton recently. Bankier will team up with Robert Blair to defend their mixed doubles title and go for a 10th consecutive win at the event.
Anne Smillie, BADMINTONscotland Chief Executive said ‘The National Championships will provide a great opportunity for fans to salute Imogen Bankier’s fabulous career. But it is also a chance to see how the next wave of Scotland players perform against the defending champions in all 5 events’.
The event has the support of Perth & Kinross Council, Yonex UK, Live Active Leisure, Perth Common Good Fund and the Mercure Perth Hotel.
