With the World Doubles Championships and SWT King or Rackets entry deadline fast approaching, it’s worth looking ahead to see what other FIR World Tour tournaments are open for entry.
As it stands there are six tournaments open after this month including the start of the Champions League in Germany and the final two events in the Victor Racketlon Series.
World Doubles Championships and King of Rackets
This year the World Doubles Championships and King of Rackets are both taking place in Oudenaarde, Belgium in an epic four days of racketlon.
Entry closes for the World Doubles Championships on Monday, May 13th with 180 players entered already. The King of Rackets entry closes a week later on May 20th with nearly 150 players registered.
Swiss Open and Latvian Open Lead Summer of Racketlon
The next tournament on the calendar is the IWT Racketlon Swiss Open. Hosted at the venue that held last year’s World Championships, this tournament is not to be missed.
Taking place from the 21st-23rd June, this tournament is a perfect early summer tournament to play at an elite, established venue. This is also a fantastic tournament for juniors with free entry for U10s and U13.
More information about the Swiss Open is available here.
July’s sole tournament is the IWT Latvian Open. The hugely popular tournament also serves as the second part of the inaugural Victor Racketlon Series.
This tournament is being held at the ENRI Tennis Club from the 12th-14th July. Any players who are taking part in the Berlin Open will want to bookmark this as a potential tournament to play to remain in the hunt for the Victor Racketlon Series prizes.
