BADMINTON MALTA GEARS UP FOR JUNIOR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

November is well known with young badminton players, as the month dedicated to the Junior National Championships.

With just over 40 entries to this year’s tournament, the competition will get rolling this Saturday at Kirkop Sports Complex.

The competition will start off this Saturday 1st November at Kirkop Sports Complex where the most of the U17 categories will be played. U19’s age categories will be played throughout Sunday, together with some matches from the U15 category.

This year Badminton Malta streamlined age categories in line with Badminton Europe’s junior age structure, removing U-16 and introducing U-15 & U-17categories.

In all 4 age categories, U13, U15, U17 & U19, Boys’ & Girls’ Singles, Boys’ & Girls’ Doubles & Mixed Doubles will be played.

This tournament is a showcase of young emerging talent within Badminton Malta, and gives the players the opportunity to gauge their progress on a national scale.

This should also be a motivator to take these athletes one step higher, that of competing with senior players.

Games will be played at the Kirkop Sports Complex on the 1st – 4th and 8th - 9th November 2014 and at the Cottonera Sports Complex on the 5th November 2014.
