Wilford to bid farewell to juniors

MATTHAUS WILFORD will say goodbye to juniors this weekend in the Central Academy & Club Badminton Tournament at Central Regional Indoor Sports Arena, Chaguanas.

It is the final tournament on the Trinidad and Tobago Badminton Association's calendar and a record 139 youngsters, made up of 78 from clubs and 63 from 12 secondary schools, have taken entry.

Wilford is the national under-19 champion for the last two years and he will be heavily favoured to conclude his junior campaign with a bang.

Jason Ramjass, last year's under-17 champ who has lost the last two under-19 finals to Wilford in the National Junior Championships, and Johann Labastide are among the challengers.

Leon Cassie, the dominant under-11 player over the last two years, is now competing among the under-13s and he could have his hands full with Michael Constantine.

Kristi Reno-Singh, the country's top female junior who was training abroad during the National Junior Championships a few months ago, is expected to dominate the under-17 and 19 categories.

And national under-15 champ Jada Renales should not be threatened in her age-group. In addition to the usual divisions—under-11, 13, 15, 17, and 19—there will also be an event for under-21 players for the very first time.

The tournament will take place today and tomorrow and first serve on both days is 8.15 a.m.
