Entries are now being accepted for the return of the Belgian Open which will be held at The Trickshot, Bruges from 17-19 March 2023.

The event marks the first WDBS competition to be held outside of the UK since March 2020 and once again will be open to all eight disability classification groups.

As in previous years, the event will be held at The Trickshot Club in the historic city of Bruges. The venue is fully accessible and has hosted the tournament successfully on three previous occasions.

There will be no formal Open Day held on the Friday, with the first matches planned to be played at the later time of 6:00pm on Friday, to enable players to travel on the day.

As is the case at all WDBS events, at least four entries are preferred for a group to run. We reserve the right to combine groups where necessary.
