The first-ever EUROPEAN OPEN PICKLEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP

sanctioned by:

 European Pickleball Federation (EPF)

World Pickleball Federation (WPF)

hosted by:

Rosti and William Sobek

 

1. What is EUROPEAN OPEN PICKLEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP?

It is one stop of several premier pickleball tournaments globally that unite pickleball players presented by Pickleball Global using GPR (Global Pickleball Rankings),

to compare and ultimately reward the best players in the world with the WORLD PICKLEBALL CHAMPION title at end of the year. 

EUROPEAN OPEN Pickleball Championship is a $15,000-dollar Pickleball Tournament. 

The EUROPEAN OPEN Pickleball Championship includes 19+, 50+, 65+, OPEN, Advanced and Intermediate divisions over the course of the 4-day Championship.

 

 

2. How does the GPR (Global Pickleball Rankings) work?

- it is based on the best 12 results in the prior 52 weeks

- players earn points for all games won

- the number of points is determined by the skill level and the tier of the competition

- the points are the same for all the age groups

- players can view their ranking at global level, continental level, and country-level according to their age groups

- players can play at different levels - either with younger players or in higher skill levels (the higher the level the more points)

- every player has a HAR (Home Age Ranking) where all the points accumulated by the player over the last 52 weeks are being posted, regardless of the ranking points

have been acquired by playing in the player’s home age event or by competing with the younger players

 

 

3. REGISTRATION DEADLINES

The deadline to REGISTER is August 29, 2021. 

 

4. WITHDRAWAL DEADLINES

We understand that there are different rules around travel and quarantine across Europe and it makes it difficult to plan ahead as far as September right now.

It is also hard for us to be able to plan the tournament but want to be able to provide an opportunity for as many European players to get together to play after so many events have been canceled over the past 18 months.

So, we have decided that we will open up registration for this tournament with the hope that as many people will register as possible. If nearer the date your country

does not allow you to travel outside your country or requires quarantine on the way back, we will process your cancellation and refund your registration fees

if you cancel more than 15 days before the start of the first day of the tournament.

 

5. WHO CAN PLAY AT THIS EVENT?

EUROPEAN OPEN Pickleball Championship is open to all players from around the world.

You do not need to be a citizen or a resident in any of the European countries

Prague

 

People hear “Czech Republic” and reflexively think “Eastern Europe.” It’s a mental trick resulting from the fact that Czechoslovakia was once part of the communist Eastern Bloc of countries that were affiliated with the former Soviet Union. In reality, Prague, the Czech capital, sits farther West than Vienna, Austria, a city and a country no one ever assumes is Eastern European.

The Czech Republic actually is at the heart of Central Europe. And its capital, Prague, is easily one of the most beautiful, ancient, Old World cities on the European continent. Czechoslovakia, and especially Prague, never experienced the devastating bombing raids that destroyed so many European cities during World War II. As such, the country and her cities still reflect much of their 1,000+ years of history.

For a European capital, Prague represents a great lifestyle at a great value.

Unlike so much of urban Europe, Prague was essentially undamaged by World War II and, thus, the streets are crammed with buildings that span the entirety of the architectural movements in Europe over the last thousand years—Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque, up through Cubism, Stalinist, and Post-1989. The Prague Castle complex, standing sentinel on a hill overlooking the city, is the largest in the world. As such, UNESCO has named Prague’s entire Old Town as a World Heritage site.

It is an increasingly modern city, with all the creature comforts of Anytown USA. It’s home to a diverse food scene, a high standard of living, high-quality healthcare, an expansive arts culture, parks big and small, and endless opportunities for walking and exploring. And, best of it, Prague offers an affordable lifestyle.
