FROM DREAM TO REALITY
BADMINTON INVITATIONAL 2019
A fundraiser in support of
NYL YAKURA’S OLYMPIC JOURNEY
HARWOOD JUNIOR BADMINTON CENTRE
Harwood Junior Badminton Centre is a small school-based badminton club in Ajax, Ontario that has operated from 1974 to present. During that time, the centre has produced numerous junior champions at the regional, provincial and national levels of play. Nyl Yakura began his competitive badminton career at Harwood and was certainly an amazing young U14 player and an inspiration for all our juniors. Early on, Nyl had a dream to represent Canada and compete at the Olympics so he moved on to Mandarin Badminton Club and then to KC Badminton Club. And today Nyl is a member of Canada’s national team and working toward the 2020 Olympics – the fulfillment of the dream.
Harwood Junior Badminton Centre would like to support Nyl’s Olympic journey – we are all too aware of the huge costs and amazing commitment that are part of elite development and Nyl’s original base club has decided to organize the “From Dream to Reality” competition with proceeds to be given to Nyl.
