The first ever IWT Dunlop Rotterdam Open sees the FIR World Tour come to the Victoria Club, which has the potential to become one of the best Racketlon venues in the world – after being due to host the World Championships in 2020, it is sure to host the sport’s biggest tournament in the near future.

Victoria Rotterdam has fantastic racket sports facilities including a glass squash show court, indoor hard court tennis courts and a dedicated hall for TT and Badminton.

With a social Padel tournament being organised on the Thurs night, a BBQ on Friday night, combined with a fantastic city to explore that has great transport links to the rest of Europe, this will be a very special new tournament for all players in all categories to enjoy.

Sponsored by Dunlop, players in all categories will get to enjoy playing with premium Dunlop balls as well as the chance to buy a bespoke Dunlop tournament performance shirt.

IWT Rotterdam Open will also be the final tournament before this year’s world championships, so the perfect chance for players to get some very important competitive practice.

The tournament will follow all FIR & local Covid-19 Health guidelines which will be sent to all players in advance of the tournament.

There are currently very few travel restrictions for people traveling to the Netherlands from most countries – but please check the links in the travel section below…
