Reached the expanded number of players 3100

The expanded registration number of the 2019 European Veterans Championships in Budapest is full.

As we have reported, there is a huge interest in the next year’s European Championship. Initially, the maximum number of entrants was 3,000, but the organizers eventually expanded it to 3100. At the available space and on the tables that can be placed there, the continental championship cannot be arranged with more players.

Those who were not watchful and slipped out of the first 3,100 candidates could only rely on luck. From now on, only from the waiting list can be entered, and over 120 players were on the waiting list on the 18th of December.

Hungarian excellence such as Csilla Bátorfi, Krisztina Tóth, Mária Fazekas, Gábor Gergely, István Jónyer or Tibor Klampár entered for the tournament. The 2019 European Veterans Championships will be held in Budapest BOK Hall from 29 June to 6 July.


Will Béla Frank defend his title?

Hungarians are usually represented with a good number of them, and they also take home a lot of medals. For example, Béla Frank won the last two European Championships in the age 60-65 and was also the first in Las Vegas. We asked him about his goal at the Hungarian Veteran European Championships.

„Before the world champs, I said that I have no chance there, but I will not say that anymore. Nor will I win, but after that, I do not consider myself an odd one” Frank said after the Las Vegas success.

Here you are the history of the past EVCs



Strong German dominance, Sweden and Russia follow

From 29 June to 6 July, you could hear many German words, as one-third of the entries have come from Germany! The Swedes and the Russians are among the top 3 nations too in veteran world competition under the roof of the BOK Hall, the place of the Hungarian ITTF Seamaster World Tour events. The main difference between the WT and the veteran Europeans is the number of tables. You will be able to play on 120 tables comparing to the World Tour’s 24.

World Tour showcourt table at the same place

In the 2018 World Veterans Championship, besides the many participants, the venue, Las Vegas, has also boosted the mood. Budapest can offer fewer casinos, but there is no shortage in sight. You can find riverboat trip on the Danube or visiting Lake Balaton among the organised programs for the participants.
