England number one Natalie Munt found time in her busy international programme on Saturday to attend Baldock Junior Badminton Club.

It was to celebrate Baldock achieving silver club status.

Dave Bartlett, representing BADMINTON England (BE), is shown presenting the Sport England clubmark certificate to chairman Bob Green (front row, third from right).

Bartlett said: "It is a great tribute to the hard work and dedication of the committee, all club members and parents that Baldock have managed to achieve this national clubmark status.

"It shows that the club is serious about good club management, coaching and competition."

Natalie also complimented the club and said that perhaps some of the club members could aspire to be in the 2012 Olympics.

She then went on court to play games with all the club members.
