You the news, we a bit!
After a two-year absence due to the pandemic, the tournament is now back in full force with participants including China’s Men’s and Mixed Doubles World Champion Zhu Yi Jun. In addition to spectacular competitions, there is an activity program for children and food and drinks can be enjoyed.
In total, nearly 300 participants from 22 countries will take part in the five-day event. For European players it is the chance to measure themselves against their peers from Asia, for example. The tournament is also interesting for all players to collect points to improve their ranking towards future European Championships, World Cups and Olympic Games. For the Netherlands, among others, the Duinwijckers Meerte Loos and Florine Wille will take to the track.
“We are very happy that we can welcome so many participants again and that the Asian countries are also coming to Haarlem as usual” said tournament director Jules Bakker.
Various activities will be organized for children on Saturday 4 March from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For example, there is a game course and you can tinker with shuttles and other materials. You can also play badminton yourself and there are great prizes to be won. With the badminton bingo card, children can hunt for beautiful badminton moves to cross off while watching the games.
All competitions and kids activities are free to attend. For more information and the program, see the website.
