For the third time in history, Badminton Denmark will act as host of the European Championship for mixed teams, which in February will be held in Frederiksberg, where Europe’s eight best national teams will meet in the fight for the championship title.

The competition was held once every two years to determine the best badminton players in Europe. Historically, Denmark has been on the prize podium a myriad of times. Denmark has managed to raise a total of 16 gold medals, 7 silver medals, and 1 bronze medal since 1972. Furthermore, this makes Denmark the country with the most won titles in total. 

Denmark has performed excellently and has in total won 16 out of 24 gold medals. Among the remaining gold medal winners, we find Germany (1), Sweden (2) and England (5).

Young talent
Badminton Denmark has selected 18 players to defend the Danish gold. It is a powerful team with a level to win gold, and at the same time, young talented players have been selected to gain valuable championship experience.

The enthusiasm is also visible at Badminton Denmark. “It is the first time we play these Champion-ships with only the best 8 teams in Europe. I am sure we will have a lot of high-quality matches and a great atmosphere in the venue”, says General Secretary of Badminton Europe, Brian Agerbak. This aligns with the ambition of Badminton Denmark which is to be a badminton powerhouse and gather the best players.
