Special prize reveal and we reached 600+ registered!

Over the past couple of years, we have given away these custom Open Dutch gloves for the gold medal winners at the tournament. This year we decided to do something different… We think it looks amazing and we hope you agree. These awesome Open Dutch winner hoodies will be given to everyone who wins first prize.


Oh, before I forget, Tuesday the 14th of January the online registration system will close, so make sure to start to register all participants before that date, you do not want to do this at the very last minute! We have passed the 600 registered, and we expect to get close to our limit of 700 competitors, so register now if you want to compete! Last but not least, we have t-shirts available as well… make sure to pre-order one for a discounted price. More details here.

Buy an Open Dutch 2020 shirt or hoodie!

For those interested, we provide the option to buy an Open Dutch shirt or hoodie at the event. Of course, we also have an option to pre-order a shirt or a hoodie and pick it up at the event. The shirts and hoodies are printed and sold by Print Station and you can pre-order them here, or of course, simply pick one up at the event. Do note the discounted price for pre-orders! Print Station will have a booth in the reception/restaurant area of the venue, you can’t miss them.


Three days ago we reached 400, today we reached 500 registered. As we have been saying from the start, we are limiting the tournament to 700 competitors, if you want to compete, sign up asap as it seems like we may reach our limit.

Surpassed the 400!

We hope everyone has enjoyed the downtime over the past two weeks. Although some of you probably trained extra for the upcoming tournament season. We have been working hard preparing for the Open Dutch 2020, to provide each and every one of you with a smooth/pleasant experience Saturday the 25th. This weekend we reached another major milestone, we surpassed the 400 registered competitors.

Numbers are going up fast now and we expect to see many more being registered in the upcoming week and a half. Please note that the deadline is Tuesday the 14th of January 2020. Make sure to register before the deadline!

Transportation, parking, and breakfast!

As we are getting closer to the event we will start sharing more and more information with you. If you are planning on coming by train, you will arrive at train station “Helmond” which is located at Verlengde Spoorstraat in Helmond. From there you can take a taxi, bus or even walk to the Sport Center / Hotel. (It is about 1km walking.)

Make sure to plan your trip using 9292.nl (bus) or ns.nl (train). The train from Amsterdam Schiphol to Helmond is an intercity and there’s no need to switch trains, please check this page for more details. If you are with 4 or more people, make sure to take advantage of the Group Ticket which is available for travel during non-peak hours! This will save you a significant amount per person!

For those traveling by car, use the following address for your navigation system:

Scheepsboulevard 2

The venue is relatively easy to find, if you prefer to have a map you can download a high-resolution version of the map below here.

There is a parking place underneath the hotel which costs € 4,- per day, we will also have additional free parking next to the hotel. We will have signage to guide you to the free parking area, but it is relatively easy to find as shown in the map below.

Last but not least, the hotel has a breakfast buffet that is open and available to everyone attending the event, even if you are not staying at the hotel. The cost is € 10,- per person.
