We are concerned about what is happening in the context of Covid-19 in the World and Europe. Badminton tournaments in Latvia and the World have been suspended until 14 April.
A state of emergency has been announced in Latvia. Institutions does not work, offices operate remotely. However, the Latvian badmitnon tournament Yonex Latvia International has not been cancelled. In difficult circumstances, we are working to organize the tournament. This should be the positive event after the long break, as hope for the recovery of badminton life in Latvia, Europe, the World.
We have already received applications from Scotland, Spain, Wales, Germany, Switzerland, and for the first time in our tournament from the African continent – 3 players have applied from Ghana.
Our recommendation and our confidence that the tournament will take place in Latvia. It will be a long-awaited event. However, be careful, just like we – keep registering, be interested in transport, accommodation, catering, training. But don’t invest money in bookings yet, it’ll have time for it!
One trip and two tournaments: Latvia and Lithuania
Distance from the venue of Yonex Latvia International to the RSL Lithuanian International only 131 km. Transport to the Lithuanian city of Panevėžys will be organized in cooperation with next week’s tournament RSL Lithuania International.
Practice courts will be available in another sports hall (4 courts) in Jelgava during the Latvian tournament, and after the Latvian tournament and before the Lithuanian tournament.
