Stephen Zhang and Monica Fong were crowned champions of the Fiji Secondary Schools Badminton Championship at the Yat Sen Secondary School hall in Suva yesterday.

Zhang of YSS took out the individual singles in the boys’ division while in the girls it was Fong also of YSS.

The schools that took part are Natabua High School from Lautoka, Yat Sen Secondary School and International Secondary School (Suva).

Tournament vice-president Andra Whiteside said from the competition they were able to select potential players for the upcoming Pacific Games.

“This tournament is held annually and it is just to give some indication on how development of badminton is going on and how it can be improved,” Whiteside said

“We will be identifying potential players who will be joining the extended squad.”

YSS badminton team captain Justin Tang said he is looking ahead of being part of the national team playing in the Pacific Games.

“After this tournament I will be preparing for the upcoming Junior Badminton Pacific Games,” he said.

“It was tough trying to defend the title as players from the Natabua Secondary School team are tough competitors but we managed to pull it off.”
