    BADMINTON: GAIL GIVES MANX MASTERCLASS
    OLYMPIC and Commonwealth Games medallist Gail Emms gave a master class to some of the Island's budding young badminton stars on her recent visit to the National Sports Centre in Douglas.
    In a trip hosted by the Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Association and sponsored by the Sleepwell Hotels group, Gail played more than 60 competitors in under two hours, and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the young players.

    The event, which was well attended by members of the junior squads in particular, served as a fundraiser for the Isle of Man Commonwealth Games effort.

    Coached by Emms and Robertson and their coach Andy

    I can beat all of you: At my club in Bedford, where Emms used to play, 28 juniour players got some coaching for 2 hours from all three of them and some other women called Nicola? I played a tiny bit against Gail Emms and a bit more against Robertson but one of my friends got to play in a mixed doubles match with Emms against Robertson and another girl (emms won). I also got my racket case signed and a picture they gave us that was signed and a pictures with emms and robertson seperately.
    So beat that

    In the big group photos I was the one next to Nathan to his right with a white T-shirt and brown hair. When the first boy is getting his bag signed by Robertson I was right behind getting my racket case signed

    I went to an exhibition game a couple of years ago, and won one of Nathan Robertson's rackets which was signed by Nathan, and also by Gail Emms, Donna Kellogg, Anthony Clark, and Robert Blair.

    The racket was presented to me by Gail Emms and when she gave it to me I was really sneaky and gave her a kiss on the cheek. :p
    I think I caught her by surprise but she didn't seem to mind. :D
    She was really lovely though and I didn't stop talking about it for weeks!!!!
