The tournament is not just for the professional players. With seven categories, it caters to a wide range of participants, from seasoned players to beginners. So, whether you’re an experienced beach tennis player or a newbie, there’s an opportunity for you to compete and challenge your skills against players from across the globe.

The tournament isn’t all competition and no fun. Along with the matches, there’s a festival-like atmosphere with live music, food stalls and a variety of entertainment options. The event aims to provide an enjoyable experience for the entire community, celebrating sport, culture and fun.

The tournament is also expected to boost tourism and the local economy of Pattaya. Anticipated to attract a considerable number of international visitors, it promises to bring significant economic benefits to the city. Tourists will not only get to witness world-class beach tennis action but also experience the city’s renowned hospitality, diverse attractions, and a plethora of ongoing activities.

The organisers of the tournament are committed to maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. They are taking detailed measures to ensure the well-being of the players, spectators and staff, striving to create an environment that is safe and enjoyable for everyone involved.
