The entry list for the Yonex Belgian Junior 2021 has been published and is available at https://bwf.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/acceptancelist.aspx?id=7B16A86C-5CCD-46EC-9D35-7283AE00D0F4.
For selecting the players/pairs the BWF Junior rankings from 01/01/2021 has been used.
We are also happy to mention that BWF has confirmed that they will award World Junior Ranking points to the Yonex Belgian Junior 2021. This will be through the same process as announced in the BWF memo to all Members. The points will be added to the World Junior Rankings but no points will be dropped from past weeks. This is to mitigate the impact on those players who were unable to enter and play due to various world travel restrictions.
All the withdrawal requests before the withdrawal deadline have to be typed in by the online entry system. The entry lists will then be updated online accordingly.
The entry deadline is next Tuesday and several delegations have already registered. However, to make this post-covid edition a success, don’t hesitate to entry.
