will be held at the Centre d’Education Physique et des Sports (CEPS Louis.

At a recent meeting in Bangkok Thailand, the Pan American Badminton

Pan American Junior Championships in July of 2019. The event will feature the Pan
Am Junior Mixed Team Championships, followed by the Individual Pan Am Junior

“We look forward to a wonderful tournament with the best junior players from our
region competing and engaging with each other” said Mr. Vishu Tolan, President Pan
Am Badminton Confederation. “These events are great exposure for our next
generation of stars and it will be exciting to see the young talents getting ready to
compete and represent their county.”
Badminton New Brunswick and the City of Moncton have recently played host to
many national level tournaments, like the Canadian Junior National Badminton
Championships in 2012, ’16 and ’17; the first ever Canadian Para-badminton
National Championships in 2016, and a Canadian International Challenge in 2011.
By working closely with the City of Moncton and the University of Moncton, BNNB is
committed to delivering world-class events.
“Badminton New Brunswick cannot express how excited we were to hear the
wonderful news that we have been awarded the 2019 Pan Am Junior
Championships in Moncton, New Brunswick” said Daryl Beers, Vice-President of
Badminton New Brunswick. “We have worked so hard over the last decade hosting
3 Junior National Championships, a Badminton World Federation International
Challenge, and many Yonex Elite and Yonex Junior Elite Series events.”
“The Pan American Junior Championships will be a very special honour for
Badminton New Brunswick because Moncton was the host city of the very first Pan
American Championships back in 1977” he continued, “now, forty-two years later
the Pan American Junior Championships will be hosted in Moncton.”
“We are thrilled to welcome elite badminton athletes from across the Americas to
Moncton during the Pan American Junior Badminton Championships in the summer
