Youth Badminton in New South Wales

The state of New South Wales (NSW), of which Sydney is its capital city, currently possesses some of the best youth badminton players in Australia. 2015 started off on a high note with eighteen year old Daniel Guda taking out the Oceania Championships men's Singles title held in Auckland on February 12.

Every state in Australia is highly competitive at badminton as illustrated by London Olympian Leanne Choo who hails from South Australia claiming both the mixed and women's doubles Oceania titles, Queensland's Wendy Chen having won women's singles, and Victoria stamping their authority on men's doubles through Matthew Chau / Sawan Serasinghe as well as the other half of women's doubles with Gronya Somerville.

Australia celebrated victory at the Oceania Junior Team Championships with five of its representatives deriving from NSW, which is more than 50 per cent of the team line up.

NSW continues to regenerate new potential and close the skills gap with arch rival Victoria as a result of broad strength throughout its junior age brackets. In 2014, NSW snatched major wins at the Under 15s, Under 17s, and Under 19s national carnivals during 2014.
