Legends Vision Legacy Tour - Northampton 10th May 2016

18 May 2016

Northampton badminton club hosted the UK’s first Legends’ Vision Legacy Tour event on Tuesday 10th May. Large crowds of aspiring players and badminton fans flocked to see the Superseries-winning, Olympic hopefuls, Chris and Gabby Adcock.

Young players from local clubs and aspiring badminton players from local schools flocked to Northampton to watch the first ambassador event in the UK – thunder sticks in hand. When the Legends’ Vision Ambassadors, accompanied by Sarah Walker and Andy Ellis, made their entrance; the noise was deafening.

The players then showcased their jaw dropping speed and agility in some drills and match play; Gabby demonstrated just how quick you need to be in net play at the highest level. Chris and Andy then proceeded to give a taste of just how fast they can really smash, a crowd favourite! King of the court was an excellent exhibition of passion and talent as the children pitted their wits against their heroes, some even coming out on top.

After the excitement on the court, it was time for the ever-insightful Gail Emms to interview the Ambassadors. Chris and Gabby sat down and educated the crowd on being a professional badminton players, their life off the court and what it means to them having been chosen as a Legends’ Vision Ambassadors for the UK.

The event was a spectacle to remember with top level badminton showcased at every moment.
