Samuel Ricketts and Katherine Wynter head a four-member Jamaica team to the Pan American Badminton Festival, which will start today in Mexico City and run through to September 16. The other members of the Howard Ranger-coached team are Jamari Rose and Mikaylia Haldane.

The Jamaica Badminton Association (JBA) said it chose to participate in the tournament as part of the development of their players.

The JBA stated that this will help to create a lot more depth and experience in the senior team, that currently lacks the quality standard that is required to compete strongly in the region.

Jamaica recently captured three medals at the Pan American Junior Badminton Championships, which was held in Guatemala in July.
