English National Badminton Championships In Photos: Can Sex Sell The Sport Of Pings?

OLYMPICS 2011: To the 2011 English National Badminton Championships where Gabby White and Jenny Wallwork have won the women’s doubles against Heather Oliver and Mariana Agathangelou.

Badminton might look like the kind of thing you’d expert to see playing in garden centre, but take another look. Why wait for the tennis to see the skirts, the rackets and the squeaky shoes, readers? For the hunks, look no further than Rajiv Ouseph, the Men’s Singles winner. Get his man a shaving contract, now!

What we want to know is: can sex sell badminton and create a buzz of excitement right up to the Olympic finals with those South Asians, who swat flies in the downtime? Can “ping” be the new grunt?

In other news, Nathan Robertson and Jenny Wallwork defeated Chris Adcock and Gabby White in the mixed doubles. The mighty Nathan partnered with ‘Howling’ Chris Langridge to win the men’s doubles against – that man again – Chris Adcock and Andy Eliis.
