Tennis Europe has announced that the European Beach Tennis Championships will be held in Bulgaria for a second consecutive year.
The eleventh edition of the event will take place from 8 – 10 September and will be hosted by the Bulgarian Tennis Federation.
As in 2016, the event will be held at the Santa Maria Holiday Village in Sozopol. Last year’s tournament saw a total of over 150 players in action and notably included a junior event for the first time in the history of the competition.
The European Championships is a closed event at which players representing Tennis Europe’s 50 member nations compete for men’s, women’s and mixed doubles titles. Last year’s competition saw beach tennis powerhouse Italy continue its dominance, winning all three titles for a ninth time in ten editions, including victories for second seeds Luca Cramarossa & Marco Garavini (pictured) and Sofia Cimatti & Flavia Daina in the men’s and women’s events.
Entry forms and further information will be sent to member nations in due course.
