Any chance Polo Prospects can join and represent amsterdam?

Amsterdam Fixed It ;)

I'll go with Raul and will say more generally: too sad and a little bit disobliging that some other well established scenes and teams like the Benelux were completely "forgotten".. You have 3 days: Why not 24 teams?
Anyway, it looks awesome, certainly great to watch too!

Hi,

There are lots of teams who we would have loved to have invited, but we only have 1 court, and a limited amount of time each day, so apart from a couple of exceptions (for various reasons), all the invited teams were in the top 17 in the Euros this year.

Benelux wasn't forgotten, I would have liked to have had a team here, but we couldn't justify it with so many better placed teams who were already missing out.

If it's a success, and we do it again next year, we will see if it's possible to get more space, and therefore more teams.

We also have the London Open happening in 2012... three huge courts in an awesome new location with no cap on the number of teams!

that's a great looking line-up! Wish I could get over there.

Final 2 teams confirmed, Edisons and a Paris team consisting of Yorgo, René, Ben

Sorry, there won't be any spaces for reserve teams this time, but as Jono says, there are unlimited spaces for the London Open 2012

Ok :(

Of course it would be better to be playing with you guys but is not the end of the world :)

We will see each other soon anyway, in a court near you :)

Cheers and see then

Amsterdam Fixed It ;)

The Shotgun Sisters are looking for a sub for Elena for this. So if you've missed out, but want to play (and you are good enough to play with them), please let me know and I'll pass on your details.

Obviously you would need to be able to be in London next Friday -> Sunday.
