Year 10 student, Chris Benzie achieved runner up (after very close matches) in the singles and doubles at the Badminton NZ National U15s recently. Chris is only one of four New Zealand players to be selected to take part in the Tier 1 Badminton Oceania development programme over the next four years. The programme is in preparation for NZ representation at the 2022 Youth Olympic Games and beyond. He will travel to Thailand later this year to attend a two week training camp. We wish you well, Chris!
