The New Zealand u19 National Championships was held at Counties Manukau Badminton recently with a large entry from North Harbour. The event, held over three days was well supported with over 70 players entered.
North Harbour was represented in all five finals with a four from five result at the end of the tournament. Four National titles for one association is a great result. The final results were:
Boys Singles: Oscar Guo (NH) defeated Edward Lau (NH) 21-12, 21-13
Girls Singles: Sally Fu (AK) defeated Gaea Galvez (NH) 21-18, 21-18
