Roberto-Sport WCS 2012 - 12-15 April, Poland

Post by Boris » Fri Dec 30, 2011 1:42 pm

Advance notice that in 2012 the Roberto-Sport WCS is back, held in Chorzow, Poland (nr Katowice).

Full details TBC but the proposal for 2012 WCS tourneys was to shift Sunday events to Thursday and put other events back one day, to reduce the number of days holiday required for the top players to compete, so provisionally:
Thursday - Divisional (P/SP/R) Singles & Mixed
Friday - Divisional (P/SP/R) Doubles & Nation Cup
Saturday - ITSF Singles events (Open, Womens, Senior, Junior)
Sunday - ITSF Doubles events (Open, Womens, Senior, Junior)

There are loads of cheap flights to nearby Airports from the UK, pick from Katowice (closest and potentially taxi-able), Krakow and Wroclaw within an hour or so's drive. Wizzair, Easyjet, Ryanair and potentially others.

Who's up for this - we need 7x players for the Nations Cup and it would be good to get actual womens and senior (4-player) teams to compete in these Nation Cup events as well.

To those with an inclination to party I need to say but one word - Wodka!!!

Best UK crowd will surely be the LeonHart in Holland in September or garlando perhaps.

I will go for sure and I recon this will be popular.

Hi guys,

I have asked the ITSF for details and they replied to say "we are expecting them very soon and thank you for your interest"

I suggest checking the website each day. I will send another chasing email. I have had it suggested to me by a couple of the polish peeps that the hotel nearest to the venue (couldn't work out if it was the venue from the message) is about £35 a night per person if sharing or £55 if on your own.

These are obviously good. The main issue is that if you fly in to Katowice the flights are more expensive and not as frequent, but if you fly in to Krakow they are cheap and regular but a £90 taxi ride each way (split between 4 its not too bad).

Regards,

Mase

Flights options from Skyscanner -

-Stansted-Katowice Ryanair £130
-Stansted-Krakow £150
-Bristol-Krakow £213
From Gatwick around £250
-East Mids-Wroclaw £118

If I go I'd either get the Stansted-Katowice or East Midlands-Wroclaw. Both Ryanair and flight times are ok and cost around £120-£130.

If anyone sees anything better let me know.
