The English mixed doubles pair and reigning European champions, Gabrielle and Chris Adcock, launched a blog in their name on 18 August. Badminton Europe have talked to them about the idea behind and how players have a lot responsibility when it comes to creating their own brand. Their new blog is a great example of players that take action in their own hands to promote themselves.

- This is a great way for us to share what’s going on in our careers, as well as offer up general info such as our schedule, results and news, and along the way we’ll show you what we get up to when we’re competing, when we’re training, and when we’re enjoying some down time.
