XMAS Games 2019

Welcome to play pickleball in December 2019 in Espoo, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere! This will be our 4th Christmas tournament and 2nd tournament this year.

Everyone is warmly welcome, regardless of their age or skill level.

In each category the guaranteed minimum amount of games for every team is three (3). However and like in our previous tournaments, most likely each team will play more games per event. It all depends on the number of registered teams. On some of the courts lowered, regular badminton nets will be used so the net posts will stay in place.

Please send in your registration as soon as possible, deadline for registration is Friday 11.45pm, 29th November 2019. The registration is obligatory. If player cancels their registration after 2nd December, the tournament fees will not be refunded. However, if the minimum amount of teams have not registered, the registration fees for that specific catergory will be refunded. Same applies if a partner can't be found for a player in event registered.

  • We might have more men than womes registering in Mixed Doubles which means not everyone may be able to find a partner
