Important changes

Beacuse the number of entries dropped significantly over the last few days it will be possible to play only in two venues. We will only use Hector and SBC and we will not use Squashpoint. U17 and U19 categories (both boys and girls) will be played in Hector, younger age groups will play in SBC. 

GU11 category will not be played. All remaining girls wanted and agreed to play in GU13 category. 

We will not publish the times of the first matches now as they would have to be changed again with every other withdrawal.

Welcome to Czech junior open 2022 website   

All the important information regarding the tournament will be published here. As the tournament is getting closer there might be some updates to previously published information. Please watch this space for any news and updates. 

Covid rules

As you all know the situation with covid is still not ideal and to be able to run the tournament we will have to stick to quite a number of covid related rules. You can find them all here

Venues

We are using 2 venues - Hector and Squash Bowling Centrum (SBC). 

The categories will be divided in between the venues (Hector - GU17, BU17, GU19, BU19, SBC - BU11, GU13, BU13, GU15, BU15). We will try to play the same category in the same venue during the whole tournament with some exceptions. On Sunday all the finals and 3rd place matches will be played in Hector. Some quarterfinals and semifinals on Saturday might be moved to Hector as well. Some plate rounds for lower positions might be moved from the venue where the rest of the category is played as well.    

Hotel

We are using the same hotel as in 2020. It is hotel Don Giovanni which is conveniently placed between the venues. Metro station Želivská is right next to the hotel so the connection into the city center is also very easy.    

Schedule

With smaller numbers compared to pre-covid years we will start the tournament on Friday at 10:00 in both venues.  

Seedings and draws

Seedings and draws will published on esf.tournamentsoftware.com

According to ESF rules we can only publish the draws at 17:00 on the day before the tournament start. So we will publish the draws on Thursday, January 20 after 17:00 on esf.tournamentsoftware.com.    

Food

You can again eat in both venues. To enable you this we had to plan the amount of food for each of the venues which is always a bit of a challenge and we would therefore like to ask you to eat your food in the venue where you play (if possible). The lunch will be served from 12:00 to 15:00 and dinner will be served from 17:00 to 20:00. Thursday´s dinner will be served in Hector for everybody between 18:30 and 20:30. 

Registration

Everyone needs to register at the main tournament office. It will be in Hector centre. It means everyone needs to come to Hector once to register and get a t-shirt and meal vouchers. You can play your first match in other venue and come to Hector to register later if you wish. Or coaches can come to Hector to register their whole groups as well. The office will be open from Thursday 16:00.

Some basic information about the tournament will be displayed in Hotel Don Giovanni lobby before the start of the tournament and also during the tournament.   

Transport

There will be buses going regularly between hotel and both venues. The transport will start at 18:00 on Thursday. The schedule is here and will be displayed in both venues and in the hotel lobby as well. You will only be able to use the shuttle bus after you do your daily antigen test and get a wrist band. 

Airport transport

Those with tournament packages which inlclude airport transport will be picked up at the airport and taken to the hotel. Every participant will get e-mail with instructions about their pick up. It will contain the contact phone number of the pick up driver and instructions how to meet him/her. If you know your flight is delayed before your departure from home, please let them know about this. If you are delayed at the airport in Prague for example because of your luggage, please let them know as well. 

Streaming

There will be live streaming from the main court in Hector centre (court no. 2) during the whole tournament. Playo.tv will provide the service. Here is a link to their website where you can watch the matches. 

Referees

There are going to be qualified referees on the court no. 2 in Hector (streaming) for the whole tournament. Some of other quarterfinal/semifinal matches will be refereed by them as well. All the other matches will be refereed by both players who played the previous match on the court.
