Scotland will be represented in the first ever GB Para Badminton squad as preparations now begin for the sports debut at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2020. Alan Oliver, who lives in Tweedbank, is the only Scottish player to be named among the nine-strong squad, consisting of four classification groups. Each player has won a medal at World level and five are the reigning world champions.
Oliver said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be selected for the GB Para-Badminton squad.
“I’m grateful to everyone for their support and generosity over the years and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
