Fantastic start for Ireland at the 2018 World championships

Sam and Chloe Magee have got Ireland off to a great start at the 2018 World Championships. The Irish number one mixed pair beat Fredrik Kristensen and Solvår Flåten Jorgensen of Norway after 29 minutes of play. The Irish dominated the match winning in straight games 21-13 and 21-8. The next round will be a much tougher task as they will come up against the number 14 seeds Wang Chi-Lin and Lee Chia Hsin from Chines Taipei. 

Nhat Nguyen is the only other Irish representative at the event. Nhat, who is one of the youngest players to qualify for the event at 17, will face the number 5 seed Srikanth Kidambi of India. Check out all of the Irish results by clicking here.
