Austrian U17 International 2020 CANCELLED!
With a heavy heart we had to decide to cancel the Austrian U17 International 2020 after all, which would have taken place from October 16th to 18th in Mödling.
We tried very hard and tried everything to give the sport a chance in times like these. However, due to latest restrictions and due to the unpredictable and short-term future government decisions, in both Austria and in Europe, we are forced to cancel the tournament. This decision was very difficult for us and we are very sad and very sorry! We tried everything to the end and made a great effort to make the tournament possible. However, the current developments have left us little chance and ultimately no other choice.
We hope that the situation will calm down by next year and that we can welcome you all back to Mödling at the Austrian U17 International 2021!

For selecting the players/pairs the BEC European U17 Ranking from 14/09/2020 has been used.
Please be informed that following the re-start of U17 Circuit tournaments in Europe, the BEC European U17 ranking will be updated as below:
Players will receive points for their participation in U17 Circuit tournaments but the ranking will be rolled onwards without dropping off past weeks/tournaments at this time so that players who were unable to travel and compete will not be unduly penalized, so effectively becoming a ranking of more than 52 weeks. This way of updating the ranking was decided in order to follow the method used by the BWF to update the BWF Junior Rankings (announced on 06/08/2020). The ranking will be updated as described above until it can be unfrozen.
