Pan American Championships

2017 will see the Championships return to the Caribbean island of Aruba!

This year's event will be Aruba's second time of hosting the Championships following on from its three year residency in Brazil.

With just under a week to go until the nations 19 October entry deadline, of the expected entrants this year the ever dominant Brazilians, champions of the past four Championships, will certainly be among the favourites to land the title but are likely to face stiff competition, particularly from Venezuela buoyed by their junior squad's 2017 triumph at the World Team Championship in Moscow and of course Aruba with the home support.

The juniors are also set to once again be given an opportunity to shine with action scheduled for three different age categories.

All the action at the Championships, now into its fifth year, is set to unfold over three days with play starting on 10 November (11 November for Juniors) with the Championships opening ceremony taking place the previous evening.

If you attend this event, we'd love to see your photos which you can share with other beach tennis enthusiasts via our official social media accounts.
