As we wait for things to get back to normal so we can all start attending tournaments again, here are some WSSA Marquee Tournament updates.
The AAU Junior Olympics have been officially cancelled due to COVID-19. We look forward to next year's 2021 AAU Junior Olympic Games which will be held in Houston TX!
The European Open, originally scheduled for August 28-30 in Denmark will be postponed one year. The new date will be August 27-29, 2021, at the same location in Frederiksberg, Denmark. Our hosts, Henrik Engell-Hedager from Denmark and Jeremy Simmonds from UK are both very excited to hold this marquee tournament but want to do it at a time when everyone feels good about traveling, so plan on joining everyone in Denmark next year in August!
This year’s Asian Open is a go! The date is November 1, 2020 and the location is Seoul, South Korea. Registration opens May 1 and all the tournament details are available on the 2020 Asian Open tournament page. 2020-06-18 Update - Our host Woosuk Kang and his team from WSSA Korea have an exciting event planned so start making your plans now. Because restrictions on travel and events due to covid are lasting longer than we thought, it is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that the 2020 Asian Open will not happen this November in Seoul, South Korea. Our host, Woosuk Kang and Team Seoul Korea were very excited to welcome everyone back to Seoul, but it is unclear whether the travel and event restrictions will be over by November and he does not want families to make reservations that end up getting cancelled. We will plan to have the Asian Open in Seoul in November 2021. Thanks for your understanding everyone.
Although this year’s 2020 World Championships did not happen in April 2020 as originally planned, Allan Ong and his team in Singapore will still be hosting the event one year later on April 2-4, 2021. As is being done with the delayed 2020 Olympics, next year’s event will still be held as the 2020 World Sport Stacking Championships. Expect a fantastic World Championships from Allan and his team.
