Just one win for NZ badminton combination

6:28 am on 4 April 2013

Just one of the six New Zealand combinations in action on day two of the Australian Badminton Open in Sydney had a win.

The solitary New Zealand winners were Kevin Dennerly-Minturn from Auckland and Waitakere's Kritteka Gregory who scored an easy victory in the opening round of mixed doubles over Australians Gregory Sam and Vera Babenko.

The pair play the top seeds from Indonesia in the next round.

The tournament runs until finals on Sunday and is being used as a build up by many competitors for next week's New Zealand Badminton Open at the North Shore Events Centre.
