Southland's top young badminton
players will soon be strutting
their stuff on the international
Ten of Southland's most promis-
ing players head to Kuala
Lumpur, Malaysia, tomorrow for
two weeks of intense training,
fitness and tournaments.
They are part of the Southland
Badminton's's Destiny 20/20 elite
junior squad, which has been set
up to try and get local players into
the 2020 Olympics.

range in age from 10 to 15-years-
old, have been to KL before on a
badminton trip, but for some it is
their first test of international
For 10-year-old Claudia Smith, the
youngest team member, it will be
her first trip to Malaysia.
While she was not looking
forward to the food, she was
looking forward to improving her
skills and playing against Malay-
She said the Malaysians were
often very good --- Malaysia is a
world badminton powerhouse ---
and they played ''differently''
from the Southland squad.
Badminton committee member,
and mother of three players in the
squad, Jo Smith, said the players
would be subjected to tough
competition and high temp-
eratures with hours of training
and games every day.
''It is full on.''
It would be hard work but the
players would also squeeze in
some time for shopping and
sightseeing, Smith said.
Several parents would accompany
the team, along with their coach
Mao Ni Hu He.
