About the Event

Before the COVID cancelled our 2020 this event had acquired increasing popularity: in 2018 there were 350 and in 2019 total of 370 players participated in either the Junior or Youth level classes. There’s been regularly over 220 international players coming from nearby European countries, Russia, India and even Peru!
