There could still be some more withdrawals tomorrow before we publish the draws after 17:00 so please have a look at your starting time carefully when the draws are published.

Welcome to Czech junior open 2020 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. 


We are using 3 venues - Hector, Squash Bowling Centrum (SBC) and Squashpoint. Squashpoint is the new venue which is replacing STEP which we were using last few years. For those who remember a bit more, Squashpoint was the venue for several years of Czech junior open from 2005.     

The categories will be divided in between the venues (Hector - GU19, BU17, BU19, SBC - GU11, GU13, GU15, GU17, BU15, Squashpoint - BU11, BU13). We will try to play the same category in the same venue during the whole tournament with some exceptions. On Thursday all the matches of all categories will be played in Hector. 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 venues where the rest of the category is played as well (probably BU17 on Saturday and Sunday).    


We are using different hotel compared to previous years. It will be 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.    


With such a high number of entries it will be very busy in all 3 venues all the time. We will start at 15:00 on Thursday in those age groups with more than 32 entries (BU13, BU15, BU17, BU19). On Thursday all the matches of all categories will be played in Hector. The other age groups will start on Friday.     

The original times of first matches of all the players are here. These times are provisonal and can change in case of withdrawals. The file will be updated when any changes happen. Please check updates at the top of the page just before the tournament as there are changes to the original starting times!!!   

Seedings and draws

Seedings were published on

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 Wednesday January 15 after 17:00 on    


This year you can again eat in all 3 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 18:00 to 21:00 starting with a dinner on Thursday. For those who did not order food they can eat in restaurants in all 3 venues. Because on Thursday all the matches will be played in Hector the dinner for everyone on Thursday will also be served in Hector.   


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 12:00.

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.   


There will be buses going regularly between hotel and all three venues. The transport will start at 13:00 on Thursday. The schedule is here and will be displayed in all the venues and in the hotel lobby as well. 

Airport transport

Those with tournament packages which inlclude airport transport will be picked up at the airport and taken to the hotel. There will be a person at the airport on Wednesday and Thursday who will organize the transport at the airport. it will be Eva Feřteková on Wednesday (+420 724 788 959) and Michal Jirka on Thursday (+420 774 477 154). They will have SQUASH sign with them so you can easily recognize them. If you don´t see them just wait for them for a couple of minutes or give them a call or text. They will come soon. 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.
