Two-time Commonwealth medallist Peter Mills says it’s early days for his partnership with Sean Vendy but is excited about what the future could hold.

At Glasgow 2014 Mills and doubles partner Chris Langridge came away with a bronze medal after edging out fellow Team England pair Chris Adcock and Andrew Ellis.

In the team event Mills also helped Team England to silver after losing 3-1 in the final to Malaysia.

Since then Mills has changed partners and is now playing alongside Sean Vendy at international level as well as in the National Badminton League.

It’s been a mixed start for the pair who lost their last NBL match in an epic five-set encounter for MK Badminton against the University of Nottingham Badmintonon Monday.

But Mills is hoping the pair can foster a strong bond as they continue to play together and eventually reach the same heights

“It’s a new partnership for me starting this year so I’m actually going to be playing with Sean in some tournaments coming up in the next few months so it’s good to see where we’re at tonight(Monday),” said Mills.

“We’ll be playing together in the NBL and it’s a different scoring system and a different game.

“As a pair we just have to keep going and developing and as a pair we have to keep working over the next few months and see where we can go.”
