Games se­lec­tion at the dou­ble?

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

Mother­well bad­minton star Alex Dunn has set his sights on next year’s Com­mon­wealth Games.

Dunn (19) has struck up a fruit­ful part­ner­ship in men’s dou­bles with Adam Hall, and in mixed dou­bles with Eleanor O’Don­nell.

With the Gold Coast po­ten­tially on the hori­zon, Dunn hopes to do well at the Scot­tish Open Grand Prix.

He said:“It’s a very big tour­na­ment and it’s on home soil.

“Adam and my­self are try­ing to qual­ify for the Com­mon­wealth Games, which is a big thing.

“It was a dream start for us as we got to the fi­nal in our first tour­na­ment, some semi-fi­nals and a quar­ter-fi­nal.

“It would be amaz­ing to get to the fi­nal of the Scot­tish Open but it’s a hard draw – we have the Dan­ish cham­pi­ons [Fred­erik Col­berg and Ras­mus Flad­berg] in the first round, but if we get past them it opens up. I would be happy with a semi-fi­nal.

“Com­mon­wealth Games would be amaz­ing. Be­fore we started I was told that I prob­a­bly wouldn’t qual­ify as a sin­gles player, but to­gether we have done re­ally well.”
