Beach tennis is returning to Preddvor, Slovenia between 18-20 July 2014.

Following on from the success of last year’s Grade 3 tournament, which was also the first Grade 3 tournament in the history of Slovenian beach tennis, this year there will be a three-day event consisting of a Grade 4 tournament on Friday 18 July and a Grade 3 tournament with 2000 in prize money held over the weekend of 19 and 20 July.

These two back-to-back tournaments will be played under the banner of Fitko Cup 2014 and, in addition to the tournaments, there will be also an organised visit, including dinner, to Ljubljana on Friday evening and a players party the following night on Saturday.

Preddvor is a very small town in the north of Slovenia, situated 10km from the national airport and 35km from the nation’s capital. Slovenia is in the heart of Europe, making it the perfect location for an international beach tennis event.
