Jenny Abbott receives prestigious English Badminton Award

Nottinghamshire’s Masters players are fully appreciative of Jenny’s current dedication and commitment to the organisation of Notts Masters badminton.

Her efforts spanning many years have now been acknowledged by Badminton England in the form of the English Badminton Award presented to Jenny at the 2024 YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships in Birmingham last weekend.

The presentation script reads as follows:

"Jenny was introduced to badminton at school and first represented Nottinghamshire County in 1965, enjoying a long and successful playing career in all three disciplines. Over many years, Jenny has worked tirelessly behind the scenes at Nottinghamshire Badminton as a founding member in 1962, the Club and Match Secretary of Forest Badminton Club and she is still Match Secretary for the Nottinghamshire Masters.

Jenny has also organised many events for the Hall Building Fund and the Annual Presentation Evening and gave considerable help in organising the 1984 entry in Guinness Book of World Records for 77 hours and 1 minute of non-stop badminton playing!

Jenny is a dedicated volunteer who over many years involvement in the game still finds bundles of energy, enthusiasm and enjoyment in promoting badminton"

Well done Jenny, thoroughly deserved!
