The BWF World Junior Championships (also known as the World Junior Badminton Championships) is a tournament organized by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) to crown the best junior badminton players (under-19) in the world. The championships is held annually and consists of two separate competitions: a mixed team championships (Suhandinata Cup) followed by an individual championships (Eye Level Cups).[1]

Editions[edit]

The precursor of the championships was the Bimantara World Junior Invitational held in Indonesia from 1987 to 1991.[2] In 1992, International Badminton Federation (former name of Badminton World Federation) started the first IBF World Championships in Jakarta, Indonesia. BWF later decided the championships will be held annually instead of biennially starting from the 2007 edition.
