3rd International Pickleball Tournament Holland 2018

The 3rd International Pickleball Tournament Holland will take place from May 25 - May 27 2018 in the Topsportcentrum Almere! It will be a very international event with probably 200 players.

After two successful tournaments in the centre of Amsterdam we were in need of a venue with more courts. We're very happy that we've found this beautiful topsportcentre in Almere where we have 16 courts available, a very nice cafe and the facility to have a dinner saturdaynight.  The venue lies next to  trainstation Almere Poort, with direct connections to almost all stations in Amsterdam). At our 'where to stay' page we've collected a lot of ideas with good connections to the venue.

It will be a skill level tournament (no age groups) and you can play singles (friday afternoon), doubles (saturday) and/or mixed doubles (sunday). In singles you'll play at least 3 games and in doubles at least 5. Minimum age is 16 years.
