    ( 本報記者任薇薇菲蒙報道 )

    為期3天的國際青少年羽毛球錦標賽美國預選賽(Junior International Trials簡稱JIT)將於總統日長周末在東灣菲蒙市舉行,來自全美各地的青少年選手角逐泛美和世界青少年羽球競標賽的入場券。

    每年2月總統日周末舉行的國際青少年羽毛球錦標賽預選賽和7月份舉行的全美青少年錦標賽,為全美兩大青少年羽球盛事。今年是國際青少年羽毛球錦標賽預選賽 繼2009年在中半島舉行之後,第二次在灣區舉行,由去年8月新張的加州羽毛球館(California Badminton Academy)負責承辦。

    該球館的創辦人、曾擔任中國國家女子羽毛球隊隊長的雷蓉蓉說,很榮幸能夠獲得美國羽毛球協會挑中承辦比賽,球館將盡最大的努力做到最好。

    今年有200名青少年報名參賽,人數為歷屆最高,其中有74%的選手來自灣區,約有80%為亞裔。

    預選賽邀請到國際裁判Charlotte Ackerman擔任裁判長,按5個年齡組分組舉行,選手將經過循環賽和淘汰賽,爭奪各組別的單雙混獎項,優勝者還可代表美國參加7月份在泛美青少年羽毛球錦標賽和10月份在台北舉行的世界青少年羽毛球錦標賽。

    比賽將於2月19日上午到2月21日全天舉行,每天上午8時半開場,周六和周日均於晚10點半結束,有興趣的民眾可前往免費觀摩。地點是 California Badminton Academy, 46049 Warm Springs Blvd, Fremont, CA 94539。
