YONEX German Junior 2019 – Preparations are in full swing

Already for the eleventh time the organizer SG EBT Berlin start the preparations for the International German Youth Championships. From 7th to 10th March 2019 the big hall of the Sportforum Berlin will once again be the venue of one of the most important youth tournaments in badminton worldwide.

After the record number of participants last year – almost 320 players from 36 countries – the organizer hopes for a similarly high participation in 2019. “For us, the registration result of the YONEX German Junior 2018 was an expression of the good reputation that the tournament and the German badminton sport enjoy in the world. I hope that in 2019 we will again be able to welcome such a large and above all international field of participants in Berlin”, says the chairman of organizer Manfred Kehrberg.

And Manfred Kehrberg’s hope is justified. The Yonex German Junior 2019 continues to have the status of a BWF Youth World Ranking Tournament, so the participants in Berlin, in addition to the coveted title, also fight for valuable youth world ranking points. Therefore we can expect to see the international badminton elite – the best European nations like Denmark, France, England, Holland and Russia, but also leading badminton countries from Asia like China, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia or Korea. Of course, the best German youths also use the tournament in their own country to compete with the best in the world and gain important international experience.

As in the past years, the YONEX German Junior will once again have a lot to offer in the media. Besides the redesigned website, the tournament will be more present than ever in the social media. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter will carry news, successes and surprises into the world. German Junior TV will also be on air again, providing moving images of the hall.

And if you want to make a contribution, either as a helper or even as a sponsor, don’t hesitate to contact us via the tournament website – because by supporting the tournament you will also be supporting sport in Berlin!

See you soon in Berlin!
