The 20th Commonwealth Games are Underway

The Commonwealth Games is a multi-sport event held every four years, where Commonwealth nations go head-to-head in several sports. The event holds nearly as much importance as the Olympics for the participating Commonwealth member-nations. This year marks the event’s 20th congregation, which commenced on July 24 and is currently being held in Glasgow, Scotland.

YONEX is proud to be the official supplier for the Games’ badminton events, which involves providing the Games with shuttlecocks, among other equipment. Badminton events include individual and mixed team competitions.

Last year the event was held in Delhi, India, where the Malaysian national team defeated the Indian home team in the team competition. In the individual events, Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei (VOLTRIC Z-FORCE II, SHB01LTD) and India native Saina Nehwal (NANORAY 900) were crowned as the champions.
