2017 Longoni Benelux Open | Complete Info & Entry Form

Dear 10ball enthusiast,

Hereby, I would like to invite you to participate in the 2017 Longoni Benelux Open, 9th edition, and once again, with a € 10.000+ guaranteed prize fund.

For the fourth year in a row, the event will be hosted by pool and snooker club Thurston Rotterdam: Thursday - Sunday, September 7th - 10th 2017.

Additionally, there will be qualification groups in Scandinavia - in Norway and in Sweden - hosted by Haag Cues! The Longoni Benelux Open is crossing borders.

The world port of Rotterdam welcomes you to yet an other spectacular weekend of 10ball. The city offers sightseeing, lots of nice restaurants, places to go out and a fun shopping experience. World class pros will attend the Longoni Benelux Open in the annual battle for the prestigious cup, the fame and the prize money. Last years' Ladies Side Events were a wonderful addition to the 10ball spectacle, as well as last year's first edition of the Juniors Side Event.

To add to the prestige of the Longoni Benelux Open, also this year, 2017 Mosconi Cup Team Europe Ranking Points are to be earned in the Final 32 Stage on Sunday September 10th, during the Main Event. Obviously, the best of the best will be in fierce battle for these high stakes.

So, be part of the action, the excitement and the fun. ENLIST NOW! Enlist for one of the qualification groups and state your preference for a second choice (just in case, your first choice of a qualification group is already full). Reply to this mail, fill in the entry form, below, and send!

The pooltables will be refitted by Serge Das Billiards with pro pockets, Iwan Simonis 860 cloth and new Super Aramith Pro-Cup TV balls. Eightballfactory is the official billiard supplies partner and as in previous years, Haag Cues will set up a shaft maintenance booth for all your needs: new tips, cleaning etc. The Longoni Benelux Open endorses Kamui tips and accessories: go for excellence.

See you in Rotterdam,

Serge Das & Çakti Aswan
Longoni Benelux Open, since 2009
