YONEX German Junior 2019 – over 300 participants for the first time in Berlin

From 7 – 10 March 2019, the eleventh International German Badminton Youth Championships will take place at the Sportforum Berlin. The organizer, the SG EBT Berlin, has set a new record again. For the first time, the magic threshold of 300 participants was crossed – by the closing date 301 players from 28 countries in Europe, Asia and America had announced their participation.

“We are really very satisfied with the result. That we can top last year’s excellent result once again is extremely gratifying. We are looking forward to another high-class tournament with the best players,” said EBT President and tournament manager Manfred Kehrberg. “This phenomenal result shows once again the enormous importance of the YONEX German Junior in the world. And of course the whole organisation team is happy about that and increases the high anticipation and enthusiasm”, Manfred Kehrberg continues.

Badminton fans can look forward this year, almost traditionally, to players from the Asian and European top nations such as Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Denmark, France or England. It is particularly pleasing that the badminton nation par excellence, China, will again be represented at the YONEX German Junior. But also badminton exotics from Peru or Italy will be competing in Berlin.

The YONEX German Junior promise an enormously high quality and internationality in the field of participants again in 2019, which has always distinguished this tournament. The competitions start on Thursday, 07 March, 9:00 am. On three days the finalists of the five disciplines will be determined, who will play the coveted titles on Sunday, March 10th.

As already in the last years, the YONEX German Junior will again offer a lot in the media. Besides the redesigned website www.german-junior.de, the tournament will be more present than ever in the social media. Facebook, Instagram. and YouTube will carry news, successes and surprises into the world. German Junior TV will also be on the air again, providing moving images of the hall.

The SG EBT Berlin and the German Badminton Association are looking forward to the 11th YONEX German Junior in Berlin and welcome all badminton fans and interested parties in the big hall of the Sportforum Berlin.
