    England's medal winners seeded for Spanish inquisition at the Euros

    Nine of England’s medal-winning badminton squad from the Commonwealth Games have been seeded for the upcoming 2018 European Championships in Spain - where Rajiv Ouseph and Chris and Gabby Adcock will be defending titles.

    English badminton won six medals – including two gold - on the Gold Coast – the sport’s best medal haul from a Commonwealth Games since 2002.

    But such is the intense schedule on badminton's world tour there is no time to look back on a job well done Down Under as attentions immediately turn to European competition, now just 8 days away in Huelva, Spain.

    Chris and Gabby Adcock
    , crowned Commonwealth king and queen of Mixed Doubles, have been top seeded as they look to retain the European Mixed Doubles crown won 12 months ago.

    The Adcocks are joined in the draw by Marcus Ellis and Lauren Smith – the Mixed Doubles silver medallists in Australia – who are seeded three.

    Ellis won gold, silver and bronze on his Games debut and is paired with Chris Langridge once again as the new Commonwealth Games champions go in search of more glory.

    The Rio 2016 Olympic bronze medallists are seeded fifth in Men’s Doubles.

    Reigning European Champion Rajiv Ouseph is third seed for the Men’s Singles event in which World Champion Victor Axelsen is expected to make his return to action following injury.

    Ouseph played 10 times in nine days on the Gold Coast, collecting team bronze and a Men’s Singles bronze following a gutsy medal play-off win against India’s HS Prannoy.

    Like Ouseph, Chloe Birch impressed in Australia with a string of fine performances against higher ranked opponents on her Games debut.

    Birch will continue to play singles at the Europeans and is also seeded eighth in Women’s Doubles, alongside Jess Pugh.

    Lauren Smith and Sarah Walker, England’s national champions, are fourth seeded in the Women’s Doubles draw.

    Smith and Walker added 2018 Commonwealth Games silver to the European bronze medal won a year ago in Kolding, Denmark.

    England will take a 15-strong contingent to Spain’s south coast with Peter Briggs/Tom Wolfenden (MD), Sam Parsons (MS), Toby Penty (MS) and Sean Vendy (MD) joining the 10 who won team bronze for Team England.
