BADMINTON players past and present from across the state will celebrate their sport at a special reunion dinner at the Country Club Tasmania next week.
More than 300 people will reminisce about their playing days on the night, with Tasmanian teams of the decade to be announced for each decade from the 1950s to the present day.
Badminton Australia president and former state and national representative Geraldine Brown will be attending along with 11-time Northern champion and state representative Robin McKendrick and eight- time Northern champion and state player Darren Young.
Brown said Northern Tasmanian Badminton Association president Rodney Lockett and a small organising committee had worked hard to organise the reunion.
"We have 312 people coming, a full-capacity crowd," Brown said.
"As far as I'm concerned, it's fantastic because to my knowledge it's the largest one to be held in the state - the response has been absolutely fantastic and we even have people on a waiting list wanting to come. We have a spread of young and old people coming from all over the state including Ken Turner who first represented Tasmania in the Commonwealth Games, and Dulcie King, one of our most celebrated players."Former Australian player and Commonwealth Games gold medallist Michael Scandolera will be guest speaker on the night.
