Gabby Adcock

2018 was another outstanding year for England’s top badminton doubles specialist. Former Garforth Academy pupil Gabby and her husband Chris are one of the sport’s leading pairs and are currently ranked sixth in the world. After retaining their Commonwealth title in Australia with a hard fought victory over England teammates Marcus Ellis and Lauren Smith, the couple went on to successfully defend their European title in Spain just two weeks later. Gabby and Chris will be travelling the globe again in 2019 as they compete in the BWF World Superseries but all eyes will be on Switzerland in August for the World Championships where the Adcocks will be hoping to improve on the bronze medal they won in Glasgow in 2017.
