Shuttlecocks fly over net again

Brianna Loan (left) and Abbey Wallace (second from left), of Invercargill, competed against Farrin Quin (second from right) and Charlotte Hayde, of Dunedin (all 16), at the Southland Badminton Championships, held at Badminton Southland in Invercargill on Saturday.

Badminton Southland general manager Larissa McMillan said about 30 participants competed from across Otago, Southland and Canterbury at the one-day event.

It was the first tournament play for young players since lockdown.

"It’s a chance for them to test out what they’ve been learning and prepare for the South Island Championships in September."
