Rebecca, inspired by Ellie Simmonds, the Paralympic swimmer has set her goals to become a GB Paralympian and win medals for Team GB.
She likes the competitive elements and the fact that it is a very technical sport, which means you can always develop your game further. Rebecca has always enjoyed taking part in a range of sports but only became competitive when she started playing on the 4 Nations Para-badminton circuit. Winning her first match really motivated me to see how far she could go with the sport.
“I would strongly encourage anyone to try a range of different sports until they find one they enjoy. I really do think that there is a sport for everyone. Badminton has helped me improve my health and fitness and given me a lot more confidence. Most of all it is great fun and you meet lots of new people.”
