The entry list for the Swedish Youth Games (U17) 2021 has been published and is available at https://bwf.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/acceptancelist.aspx?id=206923F2-462F-4B1A-8295-518246E895E5.
For selecting the players/pairs the BEC European U17 Ranking from 11/10/2021 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.
