Both tournaments will take place in the well-known venue sports centre Hector, which provides four-sport courts for each racketlon discipline. For the World Championships, we offer the maximum number of 25 categories.

Accommodation and Travel
Regarding the accommodation, we can offer you two tournament hotels – Villa and Populus. Please make your reservations as early as possible, as the capacity is limited and on a “first come, first served” basis. There will be a shuttle service available during the whole day between both hotels and the sports centre.
To travel from the airport, we can organise a transfer for you for an additional fee. You can also use the taxi service directly at the airport or public transportation. You can find more information about accommodation here.
Now we start working hard to provide you with the best possible conditions, so you can fully enjoy both tournaments. We will keep you updated on our new activities.
We look forward to your registrations and mainly to meeting you in Prague.
