Dear Racketlon Community,
I fully understand the upset the movement of the FIR World Championships Doubles and Teams from Poznan zu Wroclaw has caused to all of you and in the name of FIR I personally apologize at every single one of you. Even though FIR takes the full responsibility and it was my personal suggestion to hold the world champs in a brand new centre built for Racketlon, I want every one of you to understand that we are talking about an act beyond our control: The building of the world champs venue in Poznan - Fairplayce sports centre - was supposed to be finished in the first months of this year. Due to construction mistakes owner Ryszard Flisikowski had to change the building company and ended up with a delay of over six months. The centre was then finished at the end of October and the fire brigade came to do the final check for the fire permission to open the centre. Unfortunately only then further building mistakes concerning windows, doors and emergency exits turned up and there was no way these things could be fixed in time to get a permission before the world champs.
