Tournament Information | IWT Latvian Open

The hugely popular IWT Latvian Open returns for the first time since 2019 as the Racketlon World Tour ventures back to Riga.

The Tennis Club ENRI has hosted numerous the Latvian Open for multiple years now and is a firm favourite of some of racketlon’s most familiar faces, including the Griffiths brothers.

The tournament will take place from Friday, July 8 to Sunday, July 10.

This is the 6th edition of the IWT Latvian Open, with the tournament making its return to the Racketlon World Tour for the first time since 2019. It was due to take place in both 2020 and 2021 but was cancelled due to COVID.

We’re delighted that the tournament is making its long-awaited return to the Racketlon World Tour. Here is all the information you need to enter.

Draws & Match Schedule

While the draws will be published the week before the tournament, a planned schedule has already largely been organised.

The tournament starts on Friday, July 8 at 11:00. The last games will be on Sunday, July 10 at 15:00.

The current provisional tournament schedule is as follows:

  • Friday: Doubles – All matches except finals and bronze medal matches. Seniors Singles will begin with rounds one and two.
  • Saturday: All Singles Groups and Doubles Finals.
  • Sunday; Seniors, Juniors, Amateur and Elite Finals.

It is possible to enter two singles categories if entering an open category and a juniors/seniors category. However, you can only enter one open singles category. It is possible to enter two doubles categories.

Due to world ranking, previous tournaments, category size or the strength of a player, the organising committee can move played to other categories. To have a guaranteed place, we recommend early entry.
