Changes from 2018

The Bernd Best Tournament will be modified from 2018

Because of some staff and organisational changes, the Bernd Best Tournament will be changed from the coming year 2018:

  • In even-numbered years – there will be a tournament with at most 16 teams, with the focus on Young and Hobby teams in 2 leagues.
  • In odd-numbered years – there will be a tournament as previously held with 4 leagues from Young Teams to National Teams.

It follows that the 18 1/2th Bernd Best Tournament will be from the 23rd – 25th of March 2018 and the 19th Bernd Best Tournament will be from the 12th – 14th of April 2019.

Furthermore, there will be a big change in the Management of the Tournament. After many years Sandra Meinert has left her role as Head of Tournament – Planning. We thank Sandra for her work during this time. In return we have been able to find support from the Company „STS Eventservice“. We are really looking forward to working with that team.

The invitation for the 18 1/2th Bernd Best Tournament will be released till the 1st of November 2017. Registration for Early Birds will be open on the 6th of December 2017.
