Irish International 2016

Irish Para Badminton International 2016 was held in Antrim, Northern Ireland, UK from 22-6-2016 to 26-06-2016. I won a Silver medal in Women's singles and a Bronze medal in Women's doubles with my partner from the Netherlands. In mixed doubles, me and Manoj Sarkar were out in quarter finals.

I would like to thank all the people at Rotary club of Deonar and residents of Anushaktinagar for making sure I could participate in tournament. I would also thank Adidas India for sponsoring my apparels, Jankalyan Sahakari bank for sponsoring my kit and Ottobock India for giving my a blade prosthesis for training and playing.

My current international ranking after the tournament is as follows:

Mixed doubles : 3rd
Women's singles( SL3) : 5th
Women's doubles: 20th
