UFS badminton player in Bulgaria for training camp
2006-09-11

ROELOF DEDNAM (21), a B Acc student in his third year at the University of the Free State, left for Sofia, Bulgaria, to join the International Badminton Federation's (IBF) East-European training centre for three weeks.
 
Dednam was invited with Robert Abrahams (WP), the South African  junior champion, to attend the international training camp.  Sixteen international players from different countries take part in such a camp. The camp normally lasts two months, but they will return after three weeks in time for the national championships.

Since 2004, he and his brother Chris have been the national doubles champions, as well as the SA International champions for three years in succession.

He is a regular member of the national team, which he first made at the age of 18.  He is the holder of five under-15, five under-17, five under-19 and two senior national titles. He also won four gold and two silver medals at the All Africa Junior Championships in 2001 and 2003.

Dednam is generally regarded as the best doubles player in Africa, but is also rated third in South Africa as a singles player, while he again made his mark this year as a mixed doubles player.
