Two former world No1 badminton players are in the field for next month's New Zealand Open at North Shore Events Centre.
Throw in a former world No3 and the quality of the field will be just about the best seen in the country.
Korea's Lee Hyun-Il was the game's top-ranked male player midway through the 2000s. He was beaten in the semifinals at the 2008 Olympics and lost the bronze medal playoff in London two years ago.
Indonesian Simon Santoso got as high as No3 on the ranking list. The 29-year-old has a string of international titles to his name.
