General information

The TC Bakkum Dutch Junior Open (formerly known as the Van Keeken Tournament or the Biesterbos Open) has grown since its first edition to become the largest international youth tennis championship in the Netherlands and ranks among the top 25 youth tennis tournaments worldwide. The TC Bakkum Dutch Junior Open, already in its 64th edition, will be held from Sunday, July 2nd, to July 9th. The qualifications will take place on July 2nd and 3rd. Similar to previous years, this year's tournament will be hosted at the tennis courts of TC Bakkum in Castricum. Last year, the enthusiastic audience in the final weekend enjoyed high-level tennis matches. The boys' champion of the previous edition was Antoine Ghibaudo from France, while Federica Urgesi from Italy claimed the title in the girls' category. The tournament has a rich history, and its traditional atmosphere still prevails. Each year, the event brings a lot of joy and camaraderie to the Vinkenbaan tennis park.
