It is with great pleasure Badminton Oceania announced yesterday a new initiative that has come out of the recent recommendations from the Oceania Badminton Festival which was held at the Stadium Southland in Invercargill this year.

There was huge support for an Oceania Junior Championships to include a teams event along with an individuals event.

The Board of Badminton Oceania fully support this initiative and the President Nigel Skelt said  “We have great pleasure in announcing that from 21 – 26 February 2011 in Suva, Fiji, Badminton Oceania along with Badminton Fiji will hold the first ever Oceania Junior Championships to include a teams event, we are really excited to be able to take this event to the Islands and it has always been our aim. Badminton Fiji will do a fantastic job and we are looking forward to a great Championships in Fiji”

It is intended that this event will then be held every two years, the next one in 2013. Any countries wishing to host this event in 2013 please contact Badminton Oceania office.
