34 countries enters the 2018 European Junior Championships in Tallinn. The high number of entries equals the highest attendance ever for a European Junior Championships.

The biggest talents of European badminton will meet in Tallinn, Estonia where the 2018 edition of the European Junior Championships will take place.


Looking at the former winners of the European Junior Championships it is clear, that this event is a good indication upon who will make it to the top later in the career.

Moldavian rookies
Players like Carolina Marin and Viktor Axelsen have claimed the title as European Junior Champion within the last decade, and in September the youngsters have the chance to play themselves into the big books of European badminton history.

Even before the event kicks off a piece of history is already written: Moldova will take part in the European Junior Championships for the first time ever.

- I am very happy to see that new nations continue to enter players on this level by joining our events. I am certainly looking forward to see the Moldavian players on court in Tallinn, and I believe this is just the first of many times we will see Moldova compete at this level in Europe, knowing that they as one of few European countries have qualified two players for the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Jimmy Andersen, Senior Manager at Badminton Europe says.
