Racket sports at EuroGames 2020 in Düsseldorf
Based on the huge success of the Gay German Open as part of the GLTA, tennis at EuroGames 2020 will be big. We have managed to get the renowned Rochus-Club to host the matches on their beautiful premises, which also include a heated outdoor pool!
Badminton has been part of the Düssel-Cup for nine years. Based on that, we will organise a singles and doubles competition, most likely in a professional badminton centre in Düsseldorf, with a total number of 18 courts.
Table tennis is a key sport in Düsseldorf. Its main club is the “Bayern München” of Table tennis. Also the world championships 2017 will take place in Düsseldorf at the German national training centre. The EuroGames will take place on the centre court at that same venue.
With a high number of world-class golf courses in Düsseldorf, we plan to book one of Germany’s most prestigious courses, the Club Hubbelrath, for the golf competition. It will be organised by the Gay German Golf association.
We have secured know-how for squash and will find a suitable location to make squash part of the EuroGames 2020.
