Finnish Junior Badminton Event


THE junior badminton event
in Finland for all competitive juniors

FZ FORZA Finnish Junior 2022

U19 level tournament, part of Badminton Europe Junior Circuit, Junior International Series

2022-09-28 update:

Cancelled. U19 Category will be played as a non-BE Junior Circuit tournament

FZ FORZA Finnish YOUTH 2022

International tournament for U11, U13, U15 and U17 classes, plus a less official U9 class for the youngest ones desiring to get their part of the great tournament spirit.

Major Changes in the Event

The Badminton Europe Junior Circuit tournament FZ FORZA Finnish Junior 2022 (U19) is cancelled. There were not enough entries to make it happen. Most probably the World Junior Championships in Spain at the same time were somehow affecting the interest to register to this tournament.

This means we will now put all our efforts to organize the FZ FORZA Finnish Youth (U9-U17) with an extra U19 category added to it, but not as BE circuit tournament. We already have a good number of teams from Estonia, Sweden and other countries booked their stay, so we see it will be a good international event. 

We are also changing the venue from Otahalli to the Forever Matinkylä (Matinkartanontie 1, 02230 Espoo). Its 13 courts will set a great arena for this tournament. It is also much closer to the tournament hotel Matts.

We are keeping the initial schedule that the tournament will start on Friday, but earliest at 13:00. We will know in detail once the registration deadline is over (end of Friday 7.10.).

Registrations: foreign players by email using the Word form from our website, below. Finnish players directly on the Tournament Software.

DATE: 28.-30.10.2022

The tournament takes three days. Current estimate is that the first categories wills tart at 13:00 on Friday. The last matches should finish by 15:00 on Sunday.

VENUE: Forever Matinkylä

Matinkartanontie 1, 02230 Espoo, Finland (See in Google Maps) — this is ESB's main practice hall with 13 badminton courts designed just for badminton.
