Robertson plans to play on until the 2012 Games in London
Athens Olympic badminton silver medallist Nathan Robertson will team up with rising star Jenny Wallwork following Gail Emms's retirement.
Wallwork, 21, was picked by head coach Ian Wright as the perfect partner for 31-year-old Robertson.
"It's a dream come true," she said. "It will be a hard job to fill Gail's shoes but I'm excited by the challenge."
Robertson and Emms won Olympic silver in 2004 before collecting Commonwealth and World gold medals in 2006.
It's going to be a lot of hard work for both myself and Jenny but she has enormous talent
Emms retired after the pair lost in the quarter-finals at the Beijing Games in August.
However, Robertson has set his sights on competing at the 2012 Games in London.
"It's going to be strange playing with a new partner after competing for so long with Gail but it's also a huge new opportunity," said Robertson.
"I want to recapture the European title and then round off with gold in London in four years.
"It's going to be a lot of hard work for both myself and Jenny but she has enormous talent and I know we can reach to the top."
The new pairing's first event will be the Denmark Open from 21 October, when Robertson will also team up with Anthony Clark in men's doubles.
Their major target will be the European Team Badminton Championship at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, which begins on 10 February.
Robertson, who has 91 caps for England, was part of the team which won silver behind hosts Denmark earlier this year.
Bolton-born Wallwork, who plays for Yorkshire, has nine England caps.
Her mother played for England twice in the 1980s, while her father is a coach and recently won the men's singles and mixed doubles title at the European Senior Championships.
