Maltese International player who is has started training and living at the Badminton Europe Centre of Excellence will today face a though challenge during the 2018 European Championships, in Huelva, Spain. Abela managed to qualify at a very young age of 19.

He will be playing on court 4 at around 3:30pm and he will be facing Nick Fransman from the Netherlands who is currently 176th in the World Rankings. This is the highest level of competition of Badminton in Europe so it will be a though job for Matthew but will surely be a huge learning experience in such a high end competition.

Good luck Matthew, all Malta is behind you!
