Sportdata link online for registrations!

We enabled Sportdata yesterday for registrations and the first official registrations are coming in. We have competitors from Finland, Scotland, and Belgium already registered. Here is the link, make sure to register early: https://www.sportdata.org/taekwondo_itf/set-online/veranstaltung_info_main.php?vernr=287.

For those who missed the previous post:

One thing we would like to emphasize is that all information in the invite is based on the current COVID-19 protocol and the guidelines provided by the Dutch and local governments. Categories, classes, and/or the total number of competitors may be adjusted closer to the event based on changes of these COVID-19 protocols and guidelines.

Open Dutch 2022 poster!

The preparations for the Open Dutch 2022 are in full swing. Things are heading in the right direction finally! We are positive about it and want to offer athletes, coaches, referees, and spectators something to look forward to in the new year. We are very much looking forward to it ourselves, and we hope to see all of you on January 29th, 2022 in Helmond. Of course, we will closely monitor the developments around COVID-19 and any potential changes in guidelines and policies. We will also soon share the invitation for 2022, which will include a section on the most current guidelines/policies that will apply, and any potential restrictions we will need to adhere to. We do want to refer all competitors, coaches, referees, and spectators coming from abroad to the cancellation process (and potential fees) of the booking agency, hotel, and/or airline. The Open Dutch cannot be held accountable for any costs associated with cancellations.

Now, without further ado… Here’s the Open Dutch 2022 poster!

Accommodations prices updated for Open Dutch 2022

Considering the current situation in Europe, we are, for now, expecting that we will be able to organize the Open Dutch 2022 championships. As a few folks have asked us about the prices of the accommodations/hotels, we have updated our page. We have listed all our recommended hotels, and when you book a room, please use the codes provided. This will give you the discounted rate listed mentioned on our page! Please do make sure to read, or discuss, the cancellation policy with the hotel. Although we are aiming to hold the event, we all know how quickly things can change. We hope to see you all again on January 29th of 2022.

Looking forward to the the first tournament!

In many countries, there’s still a full lockdown in place, and the same goes for The Netherlands. However, it appears that things are slowly getting better. Who would have thought that the world would come to a stop for a while? We miss everyone, and we are still planning to go ahead with Open Dutch 2022 (January 29th of 2022)! If you are, like us, reminiscing about those days where you could be in a sports venue with 700 of your closest friends, it may be the right time to flick through the Open Dutch 2020 photo album!
