At the Under 15 English National Championships 2023 held in Nottingham on the 16th & 17th December, Sajan Senthuran claimed two gold medals.

Hosted by Badminton England, the governing body for the sport across the nation, Senthuran was victorious in the open singles and doubles.

In the open singles, Senthuran went through the competition without dropping a game. Winning the title in a hard-fought finale with Kalyan Manoj, coming out on top 22-20 21-18.

Further success came in the open doubles, in which Senthuran claimed gold alongside fellow singles finalist Manoj.
