Important note concerning the lodging

If the person accompanying a participant of the tournament does not play any sport, he or she must register by selecting 'no sport' in step 2 or unmark sport in step 3. In order to be housed together, he or she must buy a housing product, to which he may add an accompanying person ticket (Saturday lunch), a ticket for the party and/or brunch. Only when this is performed will the request be accepted. Do not forget to indicate the name of your partner in the ‘Remarks’ box in step 3!
