On November 10th, 2018, Pete Martin brought a range of Yonex rackets for the players to try.
He also posed the question ” How many feather shuttles (AS 50) were used at the Yonex All England Championships, held in Birmingham in March 2018?” Only those used for matches. The answer was 2,242 and nine players had answers within 300. Only 4 had answers within 200 and the closest answer was 2,200 from Nihal Singamsetty. Nihal is shown here receiving his prize from coach Audrey Deeley.
The prize was a Yonex racket donated by Pete and Central Sports.
Central Sports are a local equipment supplier in Coventry
