The best thing that about watching badminton live at Glasgow 2014 will be the amazing atmosphere generated by the crowd, as well as the way the athletes move about the court in search of points.

Who is your badminton hero?

My badminton hero is Lin Dan. He is without doubt an inspiration to anyone wishing to play badminton. He’s a great player who has done very well in his sport, winning all major titles.

Which badminton star should people watch out for at Glasgow 2014?

I would say keep an eye open for Scotland's own Kieran Merrilees, as well as England's Chris Adcock who could be on the podium next year but Malaysia have excellent players who are always worth watching.

Why should people who don’t know anything about badminton buy tickets to watch it at Glasgow 2014?

For people who are curious about the sport of badminton, I would strongly suggest the best way to learn about the sport is to watch world-class players in action and be in awe of their amazing abilities on the court. Amazing events such as the Commonwealth Games are a great way to inspire people to pick up a racquet and learn how to play.

Can you sum up what Glasgow 2014 will be like in three words?

Friendly, inspiring, exciting.
