ec2017The 19th ERF European Championships will be held in The Hague, Netherlands. The event will be held at the Westvliet Fitness- & Racketclub in The Hague which was also the site of the 1993 World Games. The tentative date for the EURO 2016 is 13th-16th September 2017.

With the ERF’s decision to grant the EURO2017 to the Netherlands, European Racquetball returns to it’s origins in many ways as the first European Championships were also held in The Netherlands back in 1981 in Zoetermeer. 2017 marks also the 4th time that the Europeans will be held in The Netherlands.

Due to the limited amount of courts, no seniors and junior competitions can be offered and the major focus lies on the tradional team competition which many European countries still see as a pivotal part of the European Championships. Depending on the number of entries/teams individual competiton for singles and doubles may be offered as well. More information will be forthcoming in the weeks and months ahead.
