Badminton group attend Badminton Tournament in Denmark

At the beginning of April, the Executive Committee accompanied a group of 10 badminton players to a competition ran by the DANISH GYMNASTICS INSTITUTE (DGI) in Vejen, Denmark.

The invitation to attend was issued when we hosted a DGI Badminton team in North Lanarkshire at the Ravenscraig facility last year.

clubsportnl was represented by the Norlan Badminton Club from Cumbernauld. The team comprised of Tony Martin, Gary Hare, Ian Darling, David Wilson, Shona Withey, William Withey, Fiona Withey, Karen Withey, Gary Withey and David Johnston.

The competition took place over two days with teams taking part from Denmark, Czech Republic, Slovenia and Scotland.

In addition to supporting the badminton players during the event the Executive Committee Members attended a meeting with Birte Ahle and Jorgen Madsen of DGI. The purpose of the meeting was to identify pathways for potential exchanges for our member clubs. The meeting was very positive and a number of potential opportunities were discussed utilising different formats between our two groups. Jorgen Madsen, who will be our main contact, was extended an invitatiion to attend a future clubsportnl meeting to discuss potential opportunites with our member clubs.

Consideration is being given to holding a similiar badminton tournament under the clubsportnl banner, of a similiar size, with the assistance of David Johnston, NLL Badminton Development Officer, at some point in the future.
