Owen KilburnOn the weekend of June 13th & 14th England and Notts’ Owen Kilburn competed in the English leg of the 4 Nations Para-Badminton series.

Owen reached the semi-finals of the Wheelchair 1 mens singles losing out to top seed and world number 5 Connor Dua-Harper (Devon) 21-9 21-12.

Playing with Denny Vettom (Aylesbury) in the mens doubles, Owen reached the final.

Struggling to find any form or rhythm in the match, Owen again lost out to Dua-Harper and his Devon Racqueteers team mate David Follett 21–9 21–10.

In the mixed doubles Owen paired up with Scotland’s Fiona Christie.

After being in top form in the group stage, defeating Dua-Harper and his partner Sharon Jones-Barnes in the group stage 21–15 21–12, the two pairs met again the final.

The final was a much closer affair with the victors this time being Dua-Harper and Jones-Barnes with a 24-22 21-18 score line.

Next up for Owen is the Irish Para-Badminton International Open in Dublin from June 24th -28th, where he will try to gain as much world ranking points as possible to get a good ranking for the World Championships later on in the year.

The World Championships will be hosted by Badminton England at Stoke Mandeville stadium.
