BAD­MINTON play­ers from across Aus­tralia and over­seas will gather in Made­ley next week for two com­pe­ti­tions.

The Bad­minton As­so­ci­a­tion of WA will host the Asia-Pa­cific Un­der19 Team Cham­pi­onships on Septem­ber 11 and 12 and the Aus­tralian Ju­nior In­ter­na­tional on Septem­ber 13 to 16 at Kingsway In­door Sta­dium.

Ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Eu­gene Glaz­man said four teams would com­pete in the first com­pe­ti­tion: Aus­tralian Green and Aus­tralian Gold with eight play­ers each, and New Zealand Black and White with four play­ers each.

Mr Glaz­man said 42 in­di­vid­u­als had reg­is­tered for the sec­ond com­pe­ti­tion – 13 from WA, 19 in­ter­state play­ers, eight from New Zealand, one Malaysian and one from the US.

He said the as­so­ci­a­tion last hosted a sim­i­lar event in 2012 and spec­ta­tors were wel­come to watch ris­ing ju­nior play­ers. WA com­peti­tors in­clude Rad­hika Swain, of Darch, and Matthew Cun­ning­ham, of Wood­vale.
