As everyone knows, the coronavirus is unpredictable. This uncertainty overshadows the organization of the tournament for us too. Unfortunately, after the update from the Dutch government on the corona situation on December 14 and the developments about the new covid variant in the Netherlands and other European countries, we have come to the conclusion that it is not possible to run the tournament in a safe and responsible manner. This decision is made in together with the Dutch badminton association and badminton Europe.
A number of players and groups have already paid us the registration fee via bank transfer. Of course we will refund the payments made in the coming days.
If you have any questions, you can always contact us at

On behalf of all members of BC Victoria and the organizing committee, we wish everyone a merry Christmas, a happy and healthy new year and we hope to see you again in Hoensbroek in 2022.
