Sweden, here I come! Last time I came was 9 years ago to play in the highest league for one season. It was my honor to play with my idol JO Waldner and I won. I know it was unfair but it wasn’t my fault.😊

We inspected the venue again and decided not to add more tables to maintain the playing quality. So, 39 will be the maximum number we can take per event. As of now, U2000 and U2150 are full. U2375 is also full but is still waiting for a couple of confirmation. If you still want to play these events, please still sign up on the waiting lists. We will contact you when there are openings.

Also, will limit the max cap of Open Singles to 36. There are still a few spots available.

Good news! After a careful consideration, we've figured out a way to bump up the entry numbers for U2375, U2150, and U2000. It was 33 and 39 now! We will do it without comprising the playing space. However, a few higher seeded groups will start later. It will not impact the overall schedule much since the top group winners will have a bye in the main draw anyway. However, please keep signing up at the waiting lists for U2375, U2150, and U2000. We will confirm with the players on the waiting lists in the signup order. For players I've contacted, please respond ASAP. Thank you for your patience.
