Asia Player Development Camp Completed

Eight Oceania development players from Australia and New Zealand have had their tournament and training campaign in Indonesia finish on a positive note.

The players have spent 3 weeks in Jakarta, Indonesia competing in the Jaya Raya Junior grand prix tournament (the highest level BWF junior tournament outside of World junior championships) followed by a training experience with two of the strongest clubs in Indonesia, PB Jaya Raya and PB Exist.

They have all gained valuable experience and had the opportunity to train with and spar against the top junior players in Indonesia. Living and training in a badminton environment like Indonesia has motivated the players to go back home and train hard on their pathway towards World Junior Championships and the 2018 Youth Olympic Games. 

A notable result from the tournament was in the Women's singles where Sally Fu earned herself a spot in the quarterfinal after wins against national junior players from Malaysia and Thailand. On top of the results all players had a great opportunity competing at a level they wouldn't otherwise compete at in a junior tournament in the local region.
