After hosting currently a record number of 182 top women players for the European Women’s Championship, Rodos Palace and the beautiful island of Rhodes will also hold an International Open Tournament from 21 June to 1 July!

The summer event is a great opportunity to combine 5-star holidays on the coast of a famous Greek island together with an International Open Tournament giving 10,000 euros in prizes for all categories: general standings, women and juniors.

The island of Rhodes is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe and it has several nicknames, such as “Island of the Sun”, “Pearl Island” and “Island of the Knights“, named after the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem, who ruled the island from 1310 to 1522. Rhodes was also famous for the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Medieval Old Town of Rhodes has also been declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations.
