IWT Finnish Open Entry Closing Soon

Entry to the IWT Finnish Open will close on Monday 2nd September at 11:59AM CET.

The tournament, returning to the Smash Center in Helsinki, had a historic 2018 after the Men’s A singles title was won by Henrik Mustonen.

This year, the tournament will take place from September 13th to 15th with 23 age and class categories to ensure all players can enter.

New Squash Courts

After a break away from Smash Center in 2018, the FIR World Tour returns after some brand new renovations. The venue has recently renovated the squash courts, adding an additional one. This takes the total number of squash courts from two to three.

Additionally, the squash courts have also been moved into the main hall. This means that the table tennis, badminton and squash will all take place in the same room – the perfect environment for a racketlon tournament.

Information about travel and accommodation is available on the regulations page of the IWT Finnish Open, here.

For more information, please contact Tournament Director Poku Salo on either +358 40 7765320 or poku@racketlon.fi.
