New hotel pricing available for the Open-Dutch 2025!

We’ve had some folks asking if the hotel prices for 2025 were already known or not, and we just finalized the packages with the various hotels. On our accommodations page, you can find the full details. We have the same hotels available as last year, and we’ve negotiated rates for you, so make sure to mention the booking code referenced on the accommodations page, that way you get the best price! We also would like to stress that the hotels closest to the venue will go extremely fast, so if you want to go for convenience make sure to book sooner rather than later.

Thanks everyone for a fantastic 2024 edition of the Open Dutch!

We are all still recovering from the 2024 edition of the Open Dutch, which we personally feel was a great success. Most of the photographers have shared the links to their material with us, but we suspect more will be shared in the upcoming days/weeks. Literally thousands of photos have been shared. Make sure to check them, share them with your friends and family, and/or tag those you spot in the pictures!

2024 Edition

Weigh-in on Friday starts at 18:00, and Saturday between 7:15 and 8:45!

We are a few days out from the tournament, and we hope everyone is as ready as we are! We want to remind everyone that you will need to bring a signed copy of the DECLARATION OF CONSENT form to the tournament. (Last page of the invite) It is mandatory to fill out this form and bring a printed copy of the form to the verification/weigh-ins! Yes, this applies to everyone who wants to participate, regardless of age. If you are a minor, your parents (or legal guardian) will have to sign the agreement as well. Coaches, also note that all payments (entry fee and potential referee fines!) will have to be completed and received before your competitors can weigh in!

Secondly, the weigh-in on Friday starts at 18:00 and ends at 21:00! If you are in Helmond on Friday, please weigh in to avoid long queues on Saturday! On Saturday the weigh-in is between 07:15 and 8:45. The competition will start at 9:15, and considering the number of attendees we will start on time, and we will not extend the weigh-in time slot so make sure to be there on time! We do not make any exceptions!
