Ranked 45 in the world Saffery said she would be delighted to get to the quarter finals in the individual event but was really looking forward to the doubles where she will line up against Welsh team-mate Tesni Evans.

“We are dark horses in the doubles and we are hoping we can surprise a few people by coming away with a medal.” said Saffery.

“This is my first multi-sport event and it is a huge honour.
