February 4, 2024

The Finnish Championship is behind us again and we know the champions of 2024. Tapion Sulka had a year of 4 medals: one championship and three silver places.

Joakim Oldorff reached the title for the third time in men's singles. In the final, Joakim faced HBC's Eliel Melleri, who offered Joakim a good challenge. The player from Tapion Sukla took the win 21-18, 21-19.

In women's singles, Petra Saarnivaara was in the final for the first time, winning all her matches on the way to the final in straight sets. The opponent in the final was last year's champion, HBC's Nella Nyqvist, who, after winning the championship, became a three-time Finnish women's singles champion. Score in the final was 21-4, 21-12.

Our club's third final placement this year was in mixed doubles. In the semifinals, Kalle Koljonen and Tuuli Härkönen defeated the second seeded pair in a tight three-set battle, and deservedly claimed their place in the final. Unfortunately, Kalle had an injury throughout the tournament, and had to retire in his singles semifinal. Therefore, the mixed doubles final was not played either. HBC's Anton Kaisti and ESB's Iina Suutarinen won the gold medals in the mixed doubles, while Kalle and Tuuli got their silver medals.
