Badminton England's Player to Watch

Badminton England's Player to Watch

Rajiv Ouseph

The 26 year-old, whose family hails from Kerala in southern India, is at a career-best high world No 18 after only 12 months on the world circuit. Last June Ouseph, was crowned Badminton Europe's men's singles champion in Assen, Holland. The former European junior champion hasn't looked back and is now regarded as a leading hope for London 2012, having won the Volant D'Or in Toulouse and Open victories in Scotland, Ireland and Canada since the end of November and the US Open in Los Angeles in July being the biggest win of his career.

Jenny Wallwork

The 23 year-old England No 2 has been bought in the replace Gail Emms in the Mixed Doubles, new partner Nathan Robertson. Wallwork, also plays with Gabby White in women's doubles and although the pair are still prone to make 'junior' mistakes, they are improving with each tournament.

Gabby White

The Leeds-born player is a sure-fire future star in the doubles for Badminton England. White, won a mixed doubles silver at the world junior championships two years ago with partner Adcock. She also claimed two bronze medals at the 2007 Australian Youth Olympic Festival. White, won her first national cap at the age of 12 and has been on the up ever since.

Chris Adcock

Bright prospect in both men's (partnering Robert Blair on the circuit) and mixed categories. Won 12 National titles as a junior, becoming England's most successful junior player. Double Gold medallist at both 8 and 6 nations in the U15 and U17 groups. Adcock is a bright prospect for London 2012.

Heather Olver

Olver, a Bath University graduate, is perfect to replace Donna Kellogg as Anthony Clark's partner in the Mixed Doubles. At the All England championships this year the pairing did well. This player is one to watch for the future and will be big in 2012 in front of home support.
