The first games of the YONEX German Junior 2020 started at 9:00 a.m. today at the Sportforum Berlin. After some short-term cancellations the evening before, in particular the withdrawal of almost all Indian players, caused quite a stir in the starting field, there were some matches without a fight in the first rounds of the women’s singles, men’s singles and women’s doubles competition. On the schedule were 124 matches, of which “only” 95 were played in the end.
Nevertheless, it was already clear on this first day how high class these German Junior are. Speed, reaction and fight from the first rally on, but there were no big surprises. In other words, the top seeded players prevailed, games that “should have been won, were won”. The victories of the German players, of which there were some, are of course gratifying.
The tournament also got off to an extremely successful start in the media. The livestream, which was sent to the World Wide Web for the first time with the support of SportdeutschlandTV and Gothaer Versicherung, ran smoothly and generated quite a bit of media attention. In combination with interviews and posts in social media, the YONEX Germn Junior were omnipresent in the badminton scene and even a bit beyond on this first day.
Tomorrow the second day will start at 9:00 am with the mixed competition, followed by the second round in men’s and women’s singles as well as women’s doubles and the start in men’s doubles.
Kian-Yu Oei (GER) is the local hero of the YONEX German Junior 2020, defeating Ilija Nicolussi from Austria in the first round in two sets (21:9, 21:10). Congratulations!
in less than an hour, we’ll finally be underway. The YONEX German Junior will broadcast this for the first time completely live on the internet. Court 3 can be seen from 9.00 am on Sportdeutschland.TV.
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.
