First-class beach tennis in Saarlouis!
After the huge success of the past three years, the world’s best beach tennis players are set to meet once again from 19 to 23 August in the German region of Saarland for the ITF Beach Tennis Open Saarlouis, where they will battle it out for world ranking points and a total prize fund of $15,000. The German town of Saarlouis will 2020 host for the forth time one of the most prestigious beach tennis tournaments in Europe as it welcomes the ITF Beach Tennis Open Saarlouis for the fourth time. The event will also be the setting for the German Beach Tennis Championships, the most important national beach tennis tournament in Germany. After the end of competition each day spectators will have the chance to have a go themselves, with the courts being opened up to the general public to give everyone, no matter what age or ability, the chance to try out this fun and action-packed sport. Come along, have a go and see why beach tennis is one of Germany’s fastest-growing sports! And, of course, no good beach party would be complete without good music and a chilled vibe. The concept behind the ITF $15,000 tournament in Saarlouis is widely considered as being the future of this relatively young sport which was invented in Italy and is normally played on some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. In Saarlouis the games take place not on a natural beach but in the town centre, on the Kleiner Markt square, where beach tennis meets urban chic. As well as the main ITF tournament, highlights in Saarlouis will include the German Beach Tennis Championships, the Saarlouis Amateur Cup, beach tennis for kids and, of course, the chance to train with members of the German national beach tennis team. From experienced pros to ambitious amateurs and complete newcomers, in Saarlouis there will be plenty for everyone. Spectators enjoy free admission to all the matches.
