2012 European Club Championships
Some noteable players competing this year, so it's worth a look. These include, HK Vittinghus, Casten Mogensen, Robert Matuesiak, Kevin Cordon, Michelle Li, Ivan Sozonov, Vladimir Ivanov, Febbi Agunini etc etc
Draw can be found here: http://bwf.tournamentsoftware.com/sp...5-A92056098502
Don't know who carries out the draws for this, but it seems that all the good teams (or those with great players in them) are ALL in Group D. The winner of the tournament should come from this group.

There is no date on that news item but apparently two more of their main sponsors have decided to fund the trip so they will indeed play with:Joachim Fischer, Hans-Kristian Vittinghus, Robert Mateusiak, Kim Bruun, Mattias Borg, Nadia Zieba, mie Schjøtt-Kristensen, Britta Andersen, Mette Poulsen and Cecilie Sentow. Coach: Michael Kjeldsen
No Mogensen and Meulendijks ...

It might not be important but it still is interesting to follow
It will be interesting to see if they show, HKV is injured (I believe) and some will be at the Thomas Cup of course
And arguably there are 4 good teams in Group D (2 great, 2 good)
Russian Team, Primorye, are really strong (IvanovSozanov/Sorokina/Vislova/Prokopenko)
Danish Team, SKælSkør Slegese, have HKV, Mogensen, Bruun, Judith, Mateusiak, Zieba
Itallian Team, Diessa Mediterranea, have Kevin Cordon, Michelle Li.
Other teams not as strong. But they still have good players.
If you look in the other groups, the teams featured aren't as strong as Danish or Russian. The defending champions from the Netherlands will have a tough time defending their title if the players mentioned show.

What is the format? Surdiman cup style one of each discipline?
05-16-2012, 05:38 PM #7
Nope, league style: 2 MS, 2WS, and 1 of each doubles discipline. So a team having one good man and lady isn't automatically a "strong team" ... (as the the TS link can show you). But of course Group D is the strongest group overall, but #1 and #2 advance so ...
Surprised to find out no German team this year.

Kevin Cordon can be very inconsistent, he beat Martins & Heineger but lost to Sozonov and now he beat Hans-Kristian Vittinghus! Either HKV might be fatigued from all the travel recently, but have to give credit to Cordon. Danish team still should win this match though...

Primorye (Russia) vs Team Skælskør-Slagelse (Denmark) in the final... if I had to bet, I'd say Skælskør-Slagelse to win, but it seems that it will be interesting

Nah the Russian Team are far too strong, they have good players for all the events, I can only see one outcome for this match apart from MS1 and XD where TSS should win.

Wow, Ivanov just retired in his MS and he won't play MD. Was anybody watching the match? Is he injured or something serious or just being careful?
06-02-2012, 07:22 AM #12
Yes he injured himself playing in the 3rd game.
