YONEX All England Open Creates Unforgettable Memories for Mixed Doubles Pair

A handshake with a badminton legend and the thrill of attending the prestigious YONEX All England Open are just a few cherished memories for mixed doubles pair Callum Hemming and Jessica Pugh. The duo, who have both been regular attendees of the Championship since their youth, will now take to the courts in Birmingham as a pairing for the first time.

A Memorable Experience

From the excitement of shaking hands with Lin Dan to the joy of witnessing the best in badminton, Hemming and Pugh have always had a special connection to the YONEX All England Open. Hemming fondly remembers the standout moment when he shook hands with Lin Dan, feeling thrilled to have been touched by the badminton legend. As a player, Hemming always looked forward to attending the Championship, longing to get on the court and play. Being able to actually compete in the tournament is a dream come true for him.

Collecting Memories

Pugh, on the other hand, has collected more tangible mementos from her visits. Each year, she would eagerly get her hands on the little merch available at the event. Wearing her All England t-shirt throughout the year until the next tournament became a tradition for her. These small items hold a special place in her heart and bring back nostalgic memories.

Hemming recalls the immense buzz and energy in the arena when he was part of the crowd, and he hopes to experience the same exhilaration as a player. The enthusiastic crowd adds an extra dimension to the game and inspires players to deliver their best performance.

Birmingham: A City of Sporting Excitement

For Pugh, attending the YONEX All England Open was not just a treat but also a valuable lesson. She often went on school trips from her hometown of Telford in Shropshire to witness the tournament.
