Top Flight Members Pull On England Shirts
It’s not every day that you get to pull on an England shirt and represent your country in an international sporting event. If you are not a professional athlete, such opportunities are incredibly rare.
To celebrate the 120th Anniversary of Badminton Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales were invited to Dublin to compete in the Inaugural Graded International Tournament on the 5th October 2019.
The event was held at Dublin’s National Indoor Arena and celebrated the rich history of each federation by providing an international standard event to the club members of each country.
The England teams won 2 Gold and 2 Silver medals and included 4 players from Top Flight: Stuart Preston, Adam Turner, Oliver Eames and Lauren Thomas.
