Pacific Oceania Junior Championships

2012 Pacific Oceania Junior Championships medal winners
The Pacific Oceania Junior Championships are held over two stages each year with a set of qualifying events run to determine which players will represent their regions at the Finals before also heading on to play in the Air Pacific Oceania Closed Junior Championships which also includes the best junior players from Australia and New Zealand.

The nations competing are split into three different regions: West, North and East. Players from the nations in each of these regions compete at a qualifying tournament with the best of each event progressing to the Championships. 

The Finals are split into a round-robin group stage prior to a knock-out draw to determine the overall winners. The competition is also split into three age categories of 12 & Under, 15 & Under, and 18 & Under.

The 2012 event was held at the regional training centre in Lautoka, Fiji with the West Pacific team retaining the overall title. The winners in each age category were:
