The above competition is being played on Wednesday 31 October (boys) and Thursday 1 November (girls).
Players from Albany Junior High School have taken out the girls singles and doubles at the Shuttletime Intermediate School Zone Day played at Harcourts Cooper & Co Badminton North Harbour Centre.

The boys competition has been played with a Wairau whitewash of the singles and doubles events. Jaden Mingoa who is an u13 North Harbour representative, beat Jamie Cheng from Pinehurst in the final, while in the boys doubles, a couple of unknown players claimed victory. Ivan Wong & Jeff Wong came into the event unseeded and not known to North Harbour coaching staff. They quietly made their way through the poolbox phase and then dominated in the knockout stage to beat William Li & Eamonn Wei from Albany Junior High School.
Congratulations to all players who participated in the Shuttletime Boys Intermediate School Zone Day. It was great to see so many players involved and playing the game so well. The girls hit the court tomorrow (Thursday).
