The seedings for the individual event of the 2018 European Junior Championships (EJC18) have been published today on August 24 and the expectation can start to settle in for the young players.

Line Christophersen from Denmark is going to Tallinn, Estonia, next month with the hopes to bring back a medal. 

- My goal is to come to the final, but I also have the goal to play well and use the things that I have trained this summer, Christophersen told Badminton Europe. 

This year, she is seeded third and hopes to make it further than round 2 like at the 2017 edition. The preparations for the coming event in Tallinn has also been intensified by training at the badminton academy by Peter Gade.

- My preparation has been good this summer at the Peter Gade Academy and at my club training. So, I look forward to play the championship but will already test it at Danish Junior Cup. 

Top seeds
In women’s singles top seed this year is Reka Madarasz from Hungary, and she gets company by her fellow Hungarian on the position as second seeded Vivien Sandorhazi. The latter brought a bronze medal back from the European U17 Championships last year.

Ian Spiller and Petra Polanc from Slovenia top the seeding in mixed doubles, Amalie Magelund and Freja Ravn of Denmark in women’s doubles, and, Scotland’s brothers Christopher and Matthew Grimley have earned it in men’s doubles. 

The men’s singles top seed is Nhat Nguyen from Ireland, which concludes a different nation to top each category. The individual competition commences after the final of the team event on September 11.

The final key date for the EJC18 is on August 28 when the draw for the individual event will be published.
