Badminton Oceania is delighted to announce a brand-new initiative for 2023, which will bring together the most aspiring Under 15 players from targeted Pacific Island Member Associations.
The Pacific U15 Invitation Team Competition 2023 is linked to the Player Development programme and targets six countries to compete in a Mixed Team competition, including: Cook Islands, Guam, New Caledonia, Northern Marianas, Tahiti and Tonga.
While the players will take part in some training with Badminton Oceania’s Coaching and Development Manager, Robbie Thackham beforehand, the Team Challenge take place at the same time and on the courts parallel to the VICTOR Oceania Junior Mixed Team Championships 2023, providing an opportunity for the under 15 players to experience an international competitive environment, with technical officials, live score, medal presentations and playing alongside the continent’s strongest Under 19 players.
