The German Open, which began in 1955, is an annual badminton tournament held in Germany. The German Badminton Association is hosting the competition. It is one of the most popular destinations for badminton players. When the players win the tournament, they are recognized and given financial rewards.

Callum Hemming and Steven Stallwood are among those hoping for a good run ahead of heading to Birmingham the following week and have received a bye through the first round following the exclusion of Russian players, which led to Vladimir Ivanov and Ivan Sozonov being eliminated from the draw.

Hemming and Stallwood will face the winners of the clash between Krishna Prasad Garaga and Vishnuvardhan Goud Panjala and Hiroki Okamura and Masayuki Onodera and are in the same half of the draw as England teammates Ben Lane and Sean Vendy.

The pair ranked 18th in the world, have an intriguing first-round match of their own as they take on Scotland’s Alex Dunn and Adam Hall in a ‘Battle of the Brits’ clash.
