National Champs – Ambassadors shine

A lot of Solibad Ambassadors were involved in their National Championships this past week end and many of them secured – once again – the title. In Slovenia, Maja Tvrdy scooped two titles in the women’s singles and women’s double events. Agnese Allegrini, who had performed a wonderful flashmob Indian style in Dehli last September, was crowned in Italy. Same goes for Scott Evans, who has clinched aother national title just after scooping the Cyprus International. Petr Koukal (photo) is yet unbeaten in hs home of Czech Republic, with another title in men’s singles. Marc Zwiebler also was logically on the highest step of the podium in Germany, while Phyllis Chan secured her first ever National Title in women’s doubles with Alex Bruce in Canada.

Congratulations to them all ! HK Vittinghus and Jan O Jorgensen from Denmark will be hoping to get the title this net week end in Veljen. Good luck to them both.

A special farewell was given to Judith Meulendijks (photo) during the Dutch National Championships for her contribution to the sport there – we can only aknowledge this award as Judith is truly a great shuttler and a great Ambassador. Pi Hongyan, Solibad’s Global Ambassador was not in St Brieuc to fight for her title as she retired last year from International competition, but her image was shown live in the Stadium, wishing the two finalists of the women’s singles good luck.
