We are now accepting entries for the WDBS Belgian Open which is set to return to the calendar from 7-8 March 2020.
As in previous years, the event will be held at The Trickshot Club owned by Olivier Vandenbohede in the historic city of Bruges. The venue is fully accessible and has hosted the tournament successfully during each of the last two years.
For the first time the event will include competitive tournaments for players from all eight disability classification groups, with players with intellectual and sensory disabilities joining those with physical disabilities.
There will be no formal Open Day held on the Friday, but there will be practice opportunities for players arriving on the day and a barbecue meal organised at the club in the evening.
As is the case at all WDBS events, individual tournaments will only run if at least four entries are received. We reserve the right to combine groups where at all possible, for example Group 3 with Groups 4-5, Groups 7A and 7B.
We therefore advise that players do not make non-refundable travel arrangements until enough entries have been received in their group.
To access the discount please use the code WDBSSNOOKER when booking and the discount will be applied at checkout.
Please be aware that accessible rooms are limited so we advise booking as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Bruges is easily accessible from the UK via car, rail or air. Further travel advice will be published shortly.
We are aware that several groups of players have already made plans to travel together (including from Hull, the north of England and the midlands) and we strongly encourage everyone to join our WDBS Facebook group and discuss travel options together.
We are continuing to explore options to run a service from London similar to in 2019 and will provide further information as soon as possible if this is to go ahead.
If you are considering entering the event and are not sure, or have any further questions, please contact us.
