Only 2 days remaining for the European Senior Championships in Guadelajara Spain. This has been the biggest event of Badminton Europe so far with more than a thousand players who will be welcomed.

What makes this event so special is that you will see a lot of familiar faces of former international players. One of these players is Georgy van Soerland-Trouerbach (The Netherlands) who is even more dominant at the senior field. At the ESC of 2016 she won the women’s singles and women’s doubles in the 40+ category and in 2015 she even became the 40+ world champion!

- Actually my main goal is to survive this week with all parts of my body, as I am a little injured. Luckily I don’t immediately have to play on the first day.

- Of course I hope to defend my titles, also with my partners Esther (Fleurbaay) and Gerben (Bruijstens).

- However, competing is more important that winning, but winning is very nice!

Lots of fun

The great atmosphere is what Van Soerland-Trouerbach likes so much about competing at the ESC. The Dutch senior team has a good spirit and the senior players from other nations also bring a lot of joy and experience on court.

- It is nice to see everyone again; both the Dutch group and the other players. We are a fun club together and the fun already starts in the plane.

Badminton is not the only thing Van Soerland-Trouerbach is looking forward to.

- The nice weather in Spain makes this tournament even more fun!
