In cooperation with Yonex since 2014

The international badminton tournament in Latvia was renewed in 2014 by Ilgvars Strazdiņš, Yonex distributor in Latvia. In 2014 and 2015, the tournament took place in Riga and its name was Yonex Rīga International. Since 2016, the tournament has been taking place in Jelgava, the 4th largest city in Latvia, 45 km from the Latvian capital Riga. Since 2016, the name of the tournament is Yonex Latvia International. Before that, an international ranking badminton tournament was also held in 2005 and 2006.

The tournament is significant and historical not only in Latvia. In 2018, the Latvian tournament was the largest tournament of Badmitnon Europe Circuit with 335 players from 40 countries. In 2019, one of the badminton courts in the Latvian tournament was named Notre Dame after the tragic fire in Paris, but Latvian children participated in a drawing competition for Notre Dame. In 2020, the Latvian tournament was the first after Covid’s break since Yonex All England. The Latvian tournament boasts the largest coverage on national sports TV – more than 20 hours every year.
