Victor Junior OLVE Tournament 2016

Time remaining until the first match of JOT 2016

JOT 2016

29/03/2016

The last shuttle has dropped, the last c'mon shouted and the last victory celebrated of a very successful tournament. It where 3 amazing days with great matches and a fantastic atmosphere. We want to thank everyone that came to our tournament and hope to see you back next year.

Daylight saving

26/03/2016

DO NOT FORGET!!! Sunday morning 2 AM suddenly becomes 3 AM. That's the moment that the annual daylight saving time starts. So the night is an hour shorter but that also means you do not need to wait so long for the second day of the tournament to start!

Tournament latest development

23/03/2016

Hi everyone,

I can fully confirm now that the tournament will take place. I want to thank all the teams who are committed to come to the tournament.

However, there are quite a few cancellations. That's why we will rearrange and redraw all disciplines on Friday. We are determined to make it a great weekend for all the players who will be present.

We haven't heard from everyone yet whether they will come to the tournament or not. If you still want to come, even if your team doesn't come to the tournament, please let us know before Thursday evening.

Brussels airport will remain closed up to Friday for now. So for all plane passengers, please try to rebook your tickets to other airports in the neighbourhood (Amsterdam, Charleroi/Brussels South, Oostende, Antwerp).

One last thing: The local police has confirmed us that they will provide extra security for the tournament, and they fully support us in our decision to keep organising the tournament.

Kind Regards,

Jeroen De Vries - Victor JOT Tournament Director

Quick update:

We had a meeting with the local mayor and police responsible, and they confirmed that there is no problem to continue organizing the tournament. They have of course planned extra police patrols around the tournament.

Brussels attacks

22/03/2016

Hi,

We want to thank you all for all the support we received today. It really helped to feel the support from all of you!

We're still going through with the tournament, for the same reasons I gave this morning. We received information from a lot of teams that they will still come to the tournament, thanks a lot all of you for supporting us! There are however also some teams who cancelled their participation. We will decide tomorrow evening how we will handle this. One thing I can already say is that we will allow replacements. So, if you do have a player who's not registered in the tournament yet, but wants to replace one of the players who cancels, do contact us!

About the situation in Brussels:

Public transport started to work again from 16h this afternoon. Brussels airport is still closed, and will stay closed tomorrow. Authorities will evaluate whether it can reopen on Thursday. Some airlines accept reroutings to other airports in the neighbourhood. If that's possible for you, please let us know so we can arrange the necessary transport.

About the situation in Antwerp (near to Edegem, where the tournament takes place):

The situation in Antwerp is completely normal. All public transport works on the normal schedule. Of course, extra police guards places like train stations and the city centre.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us on info@juniorolvetournament.be or +32 (0)473 74 33 92

Kind Regards,

Jeroen De Vries - Victor JOT Tournament Director

We're very happy, and extremely proud to announce that out U17 will be the first tournament to be part of the brand new Badminton Europe U17 circuit! It's a big recognition for the work we've been doing for more than a decade. This does mean some rules change for our U17. The teams who already inscribed in that category received a mail explaining the rule changes. You can find the adjusted Rules and Information document, specifically for the U17 over here.

As always, please contact us via info@juniorolvetournament.be if you have any questions.
