Open Dutch 2023 poster!

We are still disappointed that we had to make the decision to cancel the 2022 edition of the Open Dutch. However, we are already planning for 2023. We’ve booked the venue, so we know the date! Let’s hope that by that time the pandemic is under control and things are back to “normal” again. We hope to see all of you on January 28th, 2023 in Helmond.

Omicron variant knocked down the Open Dutch, but it is not a knock out!

It regrets us to have to inform you all that we, unfortunately, have to cancel the Open Dutch 2022 as a result of the current lockdown in the Netherlands due to the Omicron variant of COVID. We are well aware that there are various groups of people who already registered and have booked flights and accommodations, we would like to urge everyone to cancel your plans, or reschedule for Saturday the 28th January 2023! We hope that the cancellation of the 2022 edition does not result in significant inconvenience for any of you, and we hope that we will be able to welcome you again Saturday the 28th January 2023. Once again, our sincere apologies.

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.

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!
