The 2021 European Club Championships was due to be held in Bialystok, Poland from 21-25 June 2021, but due to the COVID-19 situation the fans will have to wait another year: Poland will be hosting the event in 2022.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic unfortunately once again made it impossible to go ahead with a Badminton Europe event. The Badminton Europe Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2021 European Club Championships.

Badminton Europe would like to thank Tournament Director Pawel Lenkiewicz for his dedication and enthusiasm, and for his efforts towards making the event possible in 2021 after last year’s cancellation.

Poland ready for 2022
The dates for the 2022 European Club Championships are still to be confirmed, but the Polish host is surely ready to welcome the best teams in Europe.

- It was with great sadness that I received the information that the European Club Championship will be postponed for the second time in a row – this time to 2022, Lenkiewicz said.

- We put a lot of work into the preparation. However, the organisation at the time of COVID-19 and very large restrictions do not fully match the atmosphere of this championship. I believe that players' health is the most important thing. Thank you to everyone for your great contribution to the organisation. We invite you to Poland in 2022.

A lot of people to thank
Badminton Europe would like to acknowledge and thank the President of the city of Bialystok, Tadeusz Truskolaski, Vice-President Rafal Rudnicki and Marshal of the Podlaskie Voivodeship, Artur Kosicki, for their utmost support and hard work towards making the 2021 European Club Championships possible.

- We sincerely hope that yet again in 2022 they will offer their good support towards the event in their city and region, Deputy General Secretary at Badminton Europe, Jimmy Andersen, said.

- We would also like to thank the Polish Badminton Association, in particular President Marek Krajewski and Vice-President Lech Szargiej, for their good cooperation – and for their willingness to host European Championships in Poland, he added.
