Yuli's student Milain and Daphne Wan at Under 15 National Camp during the Australian Open

Dear readers

2 of Yuli's up and coming badminton stars were invited to take part at the Under 15s National Camp which was held at Sydney during the same time as the Australian Open.

The training camp was paid for by Badminton Australia with the top 2 male and female players from each state being invited to take part.

Daphne Wan and Milain Ranasinghe were picked to represent WA. They did well in the training camp and were both ranked quite highly. WA will expect them to do well in the Under 15s nationals which will commence in October.

Milain got to walk on court carrying the bag of the eventual Aus Open Winner Chen Long.

Daphne also walked on to the court with a Malaysian womens doubles finalist called Tan Chin Huat.

And also from BAWA's newsletter were the following info :

A group of WA young players have been selected to the National Junior Squads:
Kai Chen Teoh, Ryan Tan and Theodore Kang are now members of U17 Youth Development Squad, and Tyzton Tan is in the U19 Elite Development Squad. We are proud of your achievements - keep up the good work guys! 

Family Fun Tournament

The An Yu Academy, Tan and Tan Lawyers Family Fun Tournament held at Samson Recreation on Sat  2nd May was a great success with 50 pairs competing in three age groups: U11, U14 & Over 14.
Each junior player was partnered by a family member or friend and it was great to see the young players enjoying being on court with the parents. In the oldest Division there were some tight and competitive matches with some of the State Juniors playing with their fathers and although the standard of play was good there was also much laughter and the 'high fives' - especially when the Dads managed to hit a good shot!
The U11 Division had some very young players on court and they showed great promise for the future. The challenge will be to maintain their enormous enthusiasm as well as developing their skills.
Yuli Zheng, founder of the An Yu Academy is to be commended on planning and managing the event with the help of several parents. There was a very happy atmosphere and was a great bonding time for families. An excellent initiative!
