Hamburg Arena Open 2012
ATTN: UNFORTUNATELY THE CITY CANCELLED THE ORIGINAL DATES AND WE HAD TO MOVE THE TOURNAMENT TO SEPTEMBER 15th/16th! REGISTRATION WILL NOW START ON TUESDAY AUGUST 14th at 2100H.
We're very sorry for all the mix up with the dates. This is the best we could do after the city turned their back on us.
We are happy to announce this years “Hamburg arena open”, which will take place on September 15th-16th.
We will have two Courts (approx. 18x30m), with high boarding, in a roofed cycling/hockey arena for you. Sides are open, so it might be cold but dry. There will be a max. of 32 Teams. 6 Swiss Rounds (morning/afternoon bracket) on Saturday and a 24 Team Double Elimination on Sunday.
Right now we're planning to have a Gold sprint and little welcoming party on Friday night with our friends at TheBigLebikeski.
There might also be a one hour Bench minor 5 vs. 5 on the full hockey court on Friday afternoon/early night. Fees will be 45 Eur/Team and include breakfast at the courts. We will also provide a BBQ on which you can throw your own Sausages or whatever you have.
Camping next to the courts is possible. Either bring a tent or stay in your car in the carpark.
The Courts are located really close to a metro station and only 15 to 20 minutes by (polo)bike to the nicest places to hang out, have food or party in Hamburg.
REGISTRATION WILL START TUESDAY August 14th at 21.00h! (GMT +2, German summertime, one hour ahead of uk) AND WILL BE DONE VIA EMAIL TO firstname.lastname@example.org
any Email that arrives before this will not be considered, so please watch the time carefully before you hit that send button. Fees will have to bee paid until August 24th after successful registration.
