YONEX German Junior 2020

Almost 330 participants in Berlin, for the first time 5 tournament days, livestream will be provided

From March 4 – 8, 2020 the international German Badminton Championships of the youth will take place at the Sportforum Berlin. The organizer, SG EBT Berlin, will be able to register a new record number of entries. By the closing date, 328 players from 30 countries in Europe, Asia and America have announced their participation. Even more, due to the large number of registrations, the number of participants in the individual disciplines has been increased and the tournament has been extended from 4 to 5 days.

“We are really overwhelmed by the registration result. The fact that we are able to beat last year’s registration record once again is extremely gratifying. We’re looking forward to another top-class and excellently staffed tournament, this time even one day longer,” says EBT President and Tournament Manager Manfred Kehrberg. “This phenomenal entry result once again shows the enormous importance of the YONEX German Junior in the world. And of course, the entire organising team is delighted with this and it increases the already high level of enthusiasm,” Manfred Kehrberg continued.

Badminton fans can look forward to players from all over the world, especially from the Asian and European top nations like Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Denmark, France or England. But also badminton exotics from Brazil or even Nepal will compete in Berlin. The YONEX German Junior promises again in 2020 an enormously high quality and internationality in the field of participants, which has always distinguished this tournament. The competitions start on Wednesday, 04 March, 9:00 am. On four days the finalists of the five disciplines will be determined, who will play for the coveted titles on Sunday, March 8th.

As in the past years, the YONEX German Junior will also have a lot to offer in terms of media. In addition to the website www.german-junior.de, the tournament will also be present in the social media. Via facebook, Instagram and YouTube, news, successes and surprises will be carried into the world. German Junior TV will also be on air again and will provide moving pictures of the hall. As a special highlight, there will be a livestream this year. With the support of Sportdeutschland.TV and Gothaer Versicherung, selected matches will be streamed live on the Internet for the first time. Further information about the livestream will be available shortly before the tournament.
The SG EBT Berlin and the German Badminton Association are looking forward to the 12th YONEX German Junior in Berlin and welcome all badminton fans and interested parties in the Great Hall of the Sportforum Berlin.
