It is probably no surprise, that leading up to this moment, we had some doubts if we could continue with the EYC 2021 in September. At the moment, the Covid-19 situation in the Netherlands and Europe is getting better really fast, which gives us all the confidence to organize great championships within 3 months from now. Still, Covid-19 has its effects on the ambitious plans we had when we started planning this event.
No arena finals
We are sad to announce that we will not be able to organize the arena finals as we had planned on September 18th, in the spectacular venue of ‘De Koepelhal’, in Tilburg City Centre. Due to Covid-19, the risks are to big and we have not got enough time to organize the finals our young athletes deserve. So we had to decide to organize all events in the bowling centre.
As a result of this decision, we needed to make some changes in the preliminary schedule we published before. You can find the updated schedule here. As you will see, we will officially open the EYC 2021 on Saturday 11th and start with the first event (boys Doubles) on Sunday 12th. We will end the EYC with the Masters finals, on Saturday 18th.
All team contacts have received an e-mail on Wednesday June 23rd about this update. Did your team did not receive the update? Please contact our tournament coordinator Jan Jaap van der Sar: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We cannot wait to welcome all participants in Tilburg this September and enjoy the bowling talents Europe has to offer!
