Back on the Road and Glasgow Bound

The Fantastic Emirates Arena

With the Commonwealth Games only 2 years away the Scottish federation are making use of the fabulous Emirates Arena, adjacent to Celtic Park, the site of the badminton tournament for the games. By all accounts the arena is state of the art and even more important to me I hear there is a full lighting rig installed which will hopefully lend itself to some good photographic opportunities.

I will be attending the Scottish International as part of the crew as well as photographer and journalist for Badminton Europe. There is a strong entry for the tournament and I am particularly looking forward to seeing how Scotland’s own Kirsty Gilmour deals with the home pressure after such a good start to the season plus its a chance for me to see a player whom I rate as world-class, if injury just stayed away for a while, that player being Olga Konon of Germany who is sure to figure at the business end of the tournament.

So bags packed for Glasgow and you can read daily updates on as well as a daily photo gallery at the Badminton Europe facebook page. To read my tournament preview just click HERE
