There will be a new win­ner in the sin­gles di­vi­sion when the Fiji Bad­minton Sec­ondary School Cham­pi­onships starts to­day at Yat Sen Sec­ondary. Natabua High School and Yat Sen Sec­ondary are the only schools tak­ing part. Natabua won the girls’ team event last year while Yat Sen won the men’s but this year there will be new win­ners in the sin­gles cat­e­gory. “The two win­ners in the sin­gles cat­e­gory last year will not be com­pet­ing so out of the 40 stu­dents, there will be a new win­ner,” Fiji Bad­minton vice-pres­i­dent Den­nis Fong said. “In terms of team events, Natabua and Yat Sen should de­fend their girls’ and boys’ di­vi­sions. “I think the likely ones who have a chance of win­ning the sin­gles cat­e­gory is Shristy Nan­dan and Liam Fong as they are both very good play­ers. “While we’ve only been hav­ing two schools com­pet­ing, we are ex­pect­ing to in­clude more schools in next year’s cham­pi­onships. “We are try­ing to start up a schools pro­gramme whereby we have eight or nine schools and if things go well, next year’s com­pe­ti­tion should be big­ger. The cham­pi­onships start at 9am.
