July - 2023 Hummersknott Badminton International Tour

Saturday 15th Jul 2023

24 players travelled to Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria and Slovakia for what was a superb tour, lots of badminton, meeting many new people and travelling as Ambassadors for Darlington and the wider UK. 8 sets of sports games including a Pickleball event. The hosting was superb and our Club is extremely grateful for such outstanding hospitality. Quotes from players on their return: "i think it is safe to say these tours create a special bond between us all, (almost like a family), which will last a lifetime. "I particularly enjoyed the lake and barbecue.." "The UN building was great to visit, it was crazy to imagine all the important decisions made there." "ilya and Vany, what a pleasure it was again this year to have you as part of our squad. You certainly make us look better on the badminton court lads! I've mentioned it before, but you are both an integral part of our club family. We see you both as part of us, and I can't wait to see you again." "The company of the two Ukrainians was stark and I enjoyed every minute with them"
