Dear friends,
The COVID pandemic touched us all. The worst - some of us lost our friends or family members.
But also the lucky ones who weren't personally wounded had to live in another world where we missed a lot of freedom and pleasures.
One of these is 2 years missing our warm, frank and friendly Salou Open.
But now after 2 years of disappointing preparations and cancellations we finally can announce the coming of the Salou Open 2022!
This year we do start the inscriptions earlier than in the past years and it has a reason.
We expect a serious rise in the prices of travel in 2022, therefore we managed to settle the contracts already now and so we could keep the basic price from 2020.
Probably also the airlines will start the sale of flights for coming May earlier than in the years before, so the early booking can be a good idea.
We hope and expect that in May 2022 we will already live in the world close to the time before COVID, but please be aware - if there will be some European or local requirements (like the proof of vaccination) we (the organizers, participants and guests) will have to respect it.

And now...

Welkom 20202022
