After making her long-awaited return to badminton back in October, Gail has continued her starring role for Team Derby in the National Badminton League (NBL).
Her last event on March 23 saw Team Derby enjoy a 5-0 triumph over MK Badminton. Next up is the final match-night of the season against the University of Nottingham on April 27 before the end of season play-off for the Championship title.
Gail said: “I’ve very much enjoyed being back out on court and playing again. Though the NBL is only in its first year, we’ve had a great response. I have to admit, I feel very old when I’m out on court against a couple of 17-year-olds! Obviously, having two young children means it’s a lot more difficult for me to find time to train, but we’ve had some good results and I’d like to carry on for at least one more season after this one.
“At the moment, I’m exploring new opportunities and I’ve decided that 2015 will be a year for learning. I’m currently taking two courses – one for UK Sport focusing on leadership and another EMCC accredited course on business coaching. I’m looking forward to passing on some of my experience to hopefully benefit others.”
