FINNISH JUNIOR

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

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.

Family Friendly

Our concept consists of one big 18-courts sports arena right next to the tournament hotel and Helsinki/Otaniemi metro station in Otaniemi, Espoo. The same arena hosts both the junior and youth events and creates a badminton-family friendly setup to spend three magnificent days with junior badminton!

DATE: 28.-30.10.2022

The tournament takes three days. We will setup the hall on Thursday evening 20:00 onward, and aim to start the U19 matches on Friday at 12:30 and the Youth classes at 11:00. The last matches should finish by 15:00 on Sunday.

VENUE: Otahalli

Otaranta 6, 02150 Espoo, Finland (See in Google Maps) — this is the same tournament hall as in 2017-2019 and 2021 events. It provides 5 elite level courts on the main arena, and 8+5 courts on other parts of the hall.
