2010 World Junior championships (Archives)


China WJC 2009The World Junior Championships, held annually, consists of two separate events: a team event  for the Suhadinata Cup followed by an individual event for Bimantara Cups  – all hosted within 10 days. Reflecting a general trend in elite sports towards younger stars, the BWF World Junior Championships has developed from a “development event” to an elite tournament in its own right. The BWF World Junior Championships provides badminton fans with a first glimpse of the stars of the future.
Whilst the standard required to win the event is incredibly high, the event is rooted in its ambition to provide elite-level competition for junior players from a cross-section of national badminton associations.

Travel to Mexico
WJC 2009It is important to find out if you need a visa for Mexico.
Getting to Mexico may require a stop-over in the USA – and that may involve a visa for the USA or an “ESTA”. Some countries (35 in total) – Korea, Japan, Singapore, Germany, France, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Denmark for example are part of a Visa Waiver Program (VWP) (linked here) and must apply online using the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (‘ESTA”).
Teams from some other countries may decide to fly direct from their home country to Mexico – there are flights from Asia and Europe (linked site) direct to Mexico – this avoids the need for a USA visa for some.
The Official Championships Hotel is the Mision Carlton. The organisers have a package which includes two meals (breakfast and evening meal), all takes and government charges, free internet and transport to/from the Official Hotel.
