SOUTHSIDE star Susan Egelstaff has been giving tips on badminton to school pupils.

The Clarkston lass teamed up with fellow GB Olympic squad member Imogen Bankier to visit Corpus Christi and Scotstoun primary schools to give pupils guidance in the finer points of the sport.

The two Glasgow players, who along with England’s Rajiv Ouseph and Chris Adcock make up the Olympic squad, took time out from training to visit their home city and talk about their aspirations of bringing home gold.

After showing the youngsters how it’s done on the court, the women talked to them about their Olympic journey and their success in Badminton.

Susan, the world number 34, will compete in the women’s singles while Bankier and Adcock will be looking to add to their World Championship silver and European Championship bronze medals this season in the mix doubles.
