On Monday the 6th February our Special Olympics Suffolk badminton players attended the Suffolk Saxons last home match of the season against the University of Nottingham – held in Ipswich – in the AJ Bell National Badminton League.
The athletes had a great evening presenting the #SOGB pennant to Andy Ellis, who is the captain of the Suffolk Saxons. This was a huge moment for our athletes and something we are all really proud of.
A huge thanks to Mike McCarthy, who is our lead badminton coach for making this happen.
The next big date for our local players (and volunteers), is Saturday 22nd April when we will be hosting the inaugural Eastern Region Doubles Badminton Tournament at Suffolk One. We hope to attract players from around the country for this event, it will serve as a qualifier for the SOGB National Summer Games being held in Sheffield in August.
