Badminton championships abandoned

A LACK of competition has forced the abandonment of badminton's Pan Pacific Teams Championships in Ballarat.

New Zealand has declined to send over a team for the championships - which were to start today - meaning the warm-up event for the Australian Junior International will not go ahead.

Players from Australia, Tonga and Tahiti took part in training today and will again tomorrow and Wednesday before the Australian Junior International begins.

This event was actually scheduled to start on Wednesday, but has been pushed back a day because of a low number of entries.
