YONEX Dutch Open 2022 is just around the corner. The International Challenge starts Wednesday, 12 October until Sunday, 16 October.   

Almere is home to the biggest tournament in the Netherlands for its’ 73rd edition. Top players from all over the world are entering the International Challenge. 

Some of last year’s winners were Kristin Kuuba, Estonia (women’s singles), Johanna Magnusson/ Clara Nistad, Sweden (women’s doubles) and Mikkel Mikkelsen/ Rikke Søby, Denmark (mixed doubles), all top 50 players in the world ranking. 

After 90 years since the first Dutch Open tournament, the best players continue to participate and this year numerous European talents are taking part.  

A great deal of players are competing from their native soil: Mark Caljouw, men’s singles, is top seeded, as well as Ruben Jille/ Ties Van Der Lecq, men’s doubles, and Robin Tabeling/ Selena Piek, the mixed doubles champions of the Dutch Open 2019.  

Chloe Birch and Lauren Smith from England are the top-seeded pair in women’s doubles and will play their first match in the round of 32 on Thursday. And as players from Chinese Taipei were dominating many of the tournaments held in Europe over the last weeks, we also have a top-seeded entry from this country for the Dutch Open: Wen Chi Hsu will lead the draw in women’s singles followed by Lianne Tan from Belgium.   

All matches can be watched from tomorrow at 9:00 CET on
