Anthony Clark, England's experienced doubles specialist, has given his partners a boost ahead of the Asian Super Series legs after being included in the squad for next week's action.

Clark, whose All England and European Badminton  Championship challenge was cut short by back and leg problems, will resume his new mixed doubles partnership with Heather Olver as well as his successful men’s pairing with Nathan Robertson.Success: Anthony Clark and Heather Olver's form has improved

Clark and Robertson won last year’s Singapore event to give England their first Super Series title and the veteran internationals will at least have the chance to retain their title.

Andy Wood, Head of Technical Development and Olympic Team Leader, said: “Anthony is doing really well in his rehab period from injury. The medical support team at Milton Keynes and at Loughborough University have been doing an exceptional job. He feels stronger and rejuvenated for his time out.

“Although far from match sharp, it will be a good yardstick for him. He is itching to get back into a competitive tournament environment and wishes to thank those around him for all their support in his recovery.”

Clark and Robertson will lead the England men’s doubles challenge and will be joined by Robert Blair and Chris Adcock and Peter Mills and Marcus Ellis. All three pairs will also tackle the Indonesian Open.

England have two pairs in the women’s doubles at both Super Series events with Jenny Wallwork and Gabrielle White competing along with European bronze medallists Olver and Mariana Agathangelou.

England also have four mixed doubles pairs in contention in Singapore and Indonesia with European bronze medallists Robertson and Wallwork joined by Clark and Olver, Blair and White and Ellis and Agathangelou.

European bronze medallist Rajiv Ouseph, Carl Baxter and Andrew Smith will contest the men’s singles in Singapore.
