Valamar President Hotel in Dubrovnik sat the stage for the 6th BEC Awards Gala on the eve of April 14th.

Danish men’s singles legend Peter Gade entered the BEC Hall of Fame this evening, accompanying Erland Kops, Lene Køppen, Gillian Gilks, Morten Frost and Nora Perry.

The former All England champion was unable to attend the gala, but in the ‘Thank you’-video played for the guests at the gala dinner, Gade expressed his gratitude and joy:

- I am very honored, I am very proud to achieve this BC Hall of Fame award. I am very happy to be part of this prestigious club of great, great European players.

- There is no doubt that I have been enjoying to represent Europe against all the Asian players, fighting all the Asian players for many, many years. But I have been very happy and very honored to have the support from Badminton Europe.


The moderator of the event, former top player Jim Laugesen, presented and received the award on behalf of Gade.
