1. What is EUROPEAN OPEN PICKLEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP? It is the European stop of the WPC Series (World Pickleball Championship Series) organized on various continents with the goal to compare and ultimately reward the best players in the world with the WORLD PICKLEBALL CHAMPION title at end of the year. WPC Series use GPR (Global Pickleball Rankings) and EPO is a tier 4 tournament offering the players the second most ranking points. EUROPEAN OPEN Pickleball Championship is a 10,000 EUR Pickleball Tournament. The EUROPEAN OPEN Pickleball Championship includes 19+, 50+, 60+, 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 15 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.
