The organisers started preparing one of the major beach tennis events of the year as early as a few months ahead of the competition.
The members of staff have worked hard to ensure that the installations were ready in time for this year’s tournament. Sandro Camerani, Member of the IFBT Council and the European Organisation comments:
“Last hours preparation of 9 courts right now, where the athletes from 8 nations, will very soon strive to achieve the honour of Champion of Europe. A pleasant surprise for the players will be the renewed Central Court with a spacious tribune. Regarding the weather, as known Sardinia is famous for its constant strong winds which make the meteorological conditions change rapidly. And that might be challenging for the players.”
