Matthew Lau

I am an experienced badminton player with over 23 years of experience playing badminton at many different levels. I have had the privilege of representing Great Britain in the European University Sports Association Championships, competing against top players from around the world.

During my time at the University of Nottingham, I had the honor of playing for the First Team, where I received invaluable guidance and training from esteemed badminton professionals such as Martyn Lewis and Antony Clark, both of whom are ranked among the best in the world.

Throughout my badminton journey, I have had encounters with prominent players, including the likes of Greg Mairs and Chris Adcock, who have represented England at the highest level.

Badminton has been a catalyst for incredible moments in my personal life as well. It was on the badminton court where I met my amazing spouse, and together, we have built a beautiful family with two children.

My love for badminton remains as strong as ever. I continue to actively participate in the game, seeking new challenges and refining my skills. Now, through Strings and Paddles, I aim to inspire and empower fellow badminton players by providing a wealth of resources, including tips, tricks, training programs, how-to guides, and information on equipment.

My mission is to create a thriving community of badminton enthusiasts, where players from all backgrounds can come together, learn, and grow. Whether you’re a beginner eager to improve your technique or an advanced player aiming for greater heights, Strings and Paddles is here to support you on your badminton journey.

Thank you for joining me on this exciting adventure.
