Easter Open The Netherlands is divided into three parts: Easter Open South, Easter Open West and Easter Open East.
Easter Open South has been active since 1999 (so in 2024, 25 years), West since 2015 and East since 2018.
We received more and more demand for Easter tournaments in the Netherlands and we found excellent sports parks that were happy to organize them. So that we can vary the Easter Open, and make a trip to other parts of the Netherlands.
With us it is still for the Dutch teams: we can arrange accommodation, but it is not mandatory, so booking something yourself is permitted.
Check the registration forms to see which age groups play at the relevant Easter Open.
For our English and Wales friends, the English age groups will be used in 2024.
The group matches will be played on Saturday, March 30, and the placement and final matches on Sunday, March 31. On Saturday and Sunday you play in half days, ie you play before noon or after noon, so that you can undertake other activities besides the tournament. Please note: Due to the number of teams, we cannot fulfill any wishes regarding the part of the day you play.
The placement matches and finals are played on Sunday, where the total age group comes together at one sports park where possible. Furthermore, the U15, U14 and U13 are divided into A Level (higher level) and B Level (lower level).
Large field plays 1 × 30 minutes, small field 1 × 20 minutes and the U7 (Saturday only) 1x 10 minutes.
Player lists must be handed in on both Saturday and Sunday at the sports park where you play.
During the tournament days you will not receive a tournament book. Two weeks before the start, everything will be sent by email.
In other words, the tournament schedule for Saturday and Sunday, regulations, play locations, player lists, and if you have booked accommodation, also the accommodation.
So make sure you provide the correct email address.
Note: concerns dispensation for players, 3 players in the team, one year older than the age group indicates. A team consists of players and reserve players. For England and Wales, the English ages are used without dispensation.
Check the formats (tournify) regularly, because groups, pools and teams can change.
We wish all associations a fun and sporty tournament, on behalf of Tiny van Gemert Sports and co-organizing associations.
