Badminton youngsters lose to powerful Netherlands
- Updated: April 9, 2014
Our badminton team have gone down again at the World Junior Championships in Malaysia, writes Mark Etheridge.
Just as Thailand are one of the strongest Eastern countries, Netherlands are one of the more powerful badminton sides in Europe.
And one again the South Africans played second fiddle although Michael Jennings managed to win a set and the women’s doubles also took a set off their stronger opponents.
Jennings lost 14-21 21-11 23-21 to Alex Vlaar while Janke vd Vyver and Anri Schoonees lost in three thrilling sets, 21-17 13-21 14-21 to Alida Chen and Imke van der Aar.
