Sofia to host European Beach Tennis Championships

The 2021 European Beach Tennis Championships will take place in Sofia from 8-11 September.

The event will be hosted by the Bulgarian Tennis Federation for a fifth time and makes its debut at the brand new Sofia Beach resort, a custom-built Beach Tennis facility boasting 8 world-class courts.

The European Championships is a closed regional championship event on the ITF Beach Tennis Tour, at which players representing Tennis Europe’s member nations compete for men’s, women’s and mixed doubles titles.

The professional event will once again be preceded by junior competitions for the 14 and 18 & Under age groups (5-7 September).

126 players from 19 Tennis Europe member nations took part in the most recent European Championships (in 2019), which saw then world #1 Nikita Burmakin team with Sergey Kuptsov to give Russia its first ever European men’s doubles title. The women’s title holders are Sofia Cimatti and Gulia Gasparri of Italy, both of whom have earned multiple European titles in recent years.

More information will follow. National associations are informed that the competition entry deadline for all age categories is Monday 12th July.
