It was the usual training but at an unusual location. The Shepparton Community Hall has 18 badminton courts. That is the most courts I have seen in one location.
The training went well.

After training, the team returned to their villas for some down time. The team had a welcoming dinner at a restaurant with the other teams.They were able to view their opposition and the common question was " Why are they so tall?".

The state team with their nails painted in black and gold. The boys took some convincing to get their nails done. They were all man enough to do it.
