We’re excited to reveal that player entry for the 2021 Racketlon World Singles Championship is now officially open. With more information about the tournament, here is an open letter from Tournament Director Esther Duebendorfer.
Racketlon World Singles Championship
Dear Racketlon Players,
In case you haven’t heard, the 18th FIR Racketlon World Singles Championship will take place this year in Langnau am Albis (outside Zurich) in Switzerland. This will take place from 21st – 24th October 2021 and it is an honour for us to welcome you against to Switzerland. We are looking forward to you coming.
In the last few weeks, we have been working intensively in the background on the replacement event for Austria and have tried to make the impossible possible. The registration for the tournament is now open and the website is online. There you will find all the important information. So that you don’t have to read everything, here is the most important information in short.
With SIHLSPORTS we have found a great sports facility. Unfortunately, the court conditions are not as lucrative as the Vitis SportCenter, but the courts are still top. Since we can “only” play on 5 courts, the flexibility of all players will be important.
With the Hotel Ibis in Zurich-Adilswil, we have a hotel with a lot of event experience as a partner. The breakfast is legendary and there are single and double rooms. Please book your accommodation at the Hotel Ibis in Zurich-Adliswil as soon as possible as the number of rooms is limited. Cancellation of the room in connection with an unexpected cancellation of the tournament is of course possible without any costs.
Unfortunately, camping is not possible on the grounds of the sports centre. However, we have a partnership with Camping Sihlwald, which gives you a 10% discount. You can pitch your tent, camper or caravan there and get to the sports centre by public transport.
We offer a free shuttle service from the hotel to the sports centre from Thursday to Sunday for all those staying at the Hotel Ibis. If you would like to try out the courts at the centre from Wednesday afternoon/evening, you can book a package for 15 euros (play on all free courts plus shuttle service to the Hotel Ibis). Please make your booking over email@example.com.
SIHLSPORTS has prepared very attractive meal offers for you. You can choose the number of meals yourself. The only condition for you to benefit from the top prices is that you book the package with your tournament registration via the tournament software. After the registration deadline, no additional meals can be booked at the preferential price. The Players Dinner will take place on Friday evening and is included in the registration fee.
This is open as of now and we appreciate your quick registration so that we can plan as well as possible.
See you soon in Langnau.
P.S. Don’t forget the Swiss Open in front of the World Singles Championship. It will take place from 20th – 22nd August 2021 at the Vitis SportCenter in Schlieren-Zurich.
