    Diane Cornell

    The Northeast region is still mourning the loss of a badminton legend and great contributor to the sport. An accomplished player herself, her family also started the DC open and the Mid-Atlantic Classic which still continues on till today and is an avenue and stage for up and coming players for the region.

    The Northeast Badminton Association recently renamed their Outstanding Service Award who’s past recipients include Junichi Kasuga and Beth Sopka to the NEBA Diane Cornell Outstanding Service Award.
