Finnish Championships

By Mr.Bordsenius at 2001-07-10

The Finnish Championships, a 6-day event was held last week.

It took place in my hometown Lahti, in a very beautiful place,
the harbour / beach of the lake Vesijarvi. Weathers were very
nice, the sun was shining all week and the highest temperatures
were around 27-30 C (80-86 F) every day. Almost 400 separate
licensed players participated to 11 different main competitions:

Mixed double
Open single / double / triple
Ladies single / double / triple
Junior single / double / triple

The main event web page
All pages in Finnish of course, but the pictures at least show
you without words the beautiful Finnish summer and nature... ;)
