Badminton Europe has released the first episode of the new BEC Golden Shuttle series. Where Europe’s top players are put to the test to see how much they actually know about badminton!
The BEC Golden Shuttle is a series that travels across Europe and challenges players to step off-court and compete against each other, not with their rackets, but with their badminton knowledge. The winner will get the coveted BEC Golden Shuttle and of course bragging rights during training!

Episode 1 featured Irish stars Nhat Nguyen and Paul Reynolds. Doubles partners on-court (2017 Polish International winners) and friends off-court, the competitiveness was high, both expressing confidence that they will take the win at the start. 

Paul Reynolds, partnering Joshua Magee, is at 88 in the world in men’s doubles. Nhat Nguyen, 2018 European Junior Championship bronze medallist, focuses on his men’s singles and has climbed to 63 in the world. 

However, badminton playing form goes out of the window when it comes to winning the BEC Golden Shuttle. Who will come out on top in the badminton knowledge game? Find out below.
