In 2022, Latvia will organize first World Junior Ranking Tournament “Yonex Latvia Junior 2022”. It was supposed to happen already in 2021, but it was canceled due to Covid-19. Previously only Elite and U17 Badminton Europe tournaments have been held in Latvia. The Latvian international junior tournament will be held in the Latvian city of Sigulda, where the Yonex Latvia U17 youth tournaments were successfully held previously.
One trip – two tournaments
The Latvian junior tournament will take place a week after the Lithuanian junior tournament, so players, parents and coaches are invited to plan one trip with two tournaments. After the Lithuanian tournament, whether in Latvia or Lithuania, it will be possible to organize a training camp. Together with our Lithuanian colleagues, we can organize transport from Lithuania and Latvia.
