Sorry that it took me so long to answer but I'm pretty busy at the moment.
Concerning the Euros:
I can't really speak for all the players in Hannover but since I see a pretty advanced prep for the Euros by the Paris community I would say go for it.
It is true, we have 2 very prefessional courts here and place to camp and (at least in the summer months) nice weather but the number of players that are willing to put a lot of work into organizing such a big event is pretty small. Apart from that the club we (and the courts) are part of is ... complicated (fuckin German correctness, fuck it!).
So thank you, Paris, for organizing it. There might be an international tourney in Hannover as well this year or again the German championships, but not the Euros.
