On behalf of the Czech Racketlon Association, I would like to sincerely invite you all again to beautiful Prague. Not only is the traditional IWT 16th Czech Open being held on November 6th-8th, but this time we are also hosting the 18th FIR World Doubles Championships on November 5th-6th. Both tournaments will take place in the well-known venue, Hector, which provides four courts for each racketlon discipline. For the World Championships, we offer the maximum number of 27 categories.

IWT Czech Open
On Friday morning, IWT Czech Open will start with singles categories (we start again with the strongest Men’s Categories). Only two single categories per player are possible. Other single categories (Women, Juniors, Seniors) will start on Saturday morning. On Saturday evening, dinner for players (Singles Dinner) will be prepared, included in the registration fee for single categories. The Players Party will follow.
On Sunday, all matches in the single categories will be finished. Around 18:00 the IWT Czech Open will end with the Winners Ceremony.
Regarding the accommodation, we can offer you two tournament hotels – Villa and Populus. Please make your reservation on time, as the capacity is limited and “first come, first served”.
There will be shuttle service available during the whole day between both hotels and the sports venue, Hector. To travel from the airport, we can organize for you the transfer for an additional fee. You can also use the taxi service directly at the airport or public transportation.
