After the DANISA Denmark Open, the SaarLorLux Open is set to close the year as the last international BWF tournament. This is a Super 100 tournament which is scheduled for 27 October to 1 November.
The SaarLorLux Open starts at Saarlandhalle Saarbrücken, Germany.
Since there is no tournament for the remainder of the year, some big names have decided to make the trip to Germany. Some of those players are:
Gabriela Stoeva/Stefani Stoeva
Linda Efler/Isabel Herttrich
Kim Astrup/Anders Rasmussen
Mark Lamsfuss/Marvin Seidel
Mark Lamsfuss/Isabel Herttrich
Mathias Christiansen/Alexandra Boje
The tournament, which is a Grade 2 BWF Tour Level 6 will award each winner/pair 5500 ranking points and the runner-up/pair 4680 ranking points. The tournament also carries a total prize pool of 90,000 USD.
The Badminton World Federation had already stipulated that this tournament will not be counted to qualify for the World Tour Finals. The players who would be qualifying for the Finals would still have to participate in the Asia Open I and Asia Open II.
