Gillian Gilks

Gillian Gilks (formerly Gillian Perrin, and later Gillian Goodwin; born 20 June 1950) is a former badminton player from England who won numerous major titles in all three events (singles, doubles, and mixed doubles) between the late 1960s and the mid-1980s.

Tall and slender in her badminton prime, with elegant, accurate strokes, Gilks is the most successful player ever in the European Badminton Championships with 12 titles, two of them in women's singles, four in women's doubles and six in mixed doubles. She is also one of the most successful players in the long history of the All England Open Championships with eleven titles; two in women's singles, three in women's doubles, and six in mixed doubles. In 1976 she won all three events at the All Englands making her the last person to "sweep the board" there in a single year. In 1999 she was inducted into the World Badminton Hall of Fame.
