Don't forget to enjoy a delicious Dutch pancake and some lemonade afterwards. And of course there are great prizes to win! View the kids activities page for details.

Food & drinks

In addition to watching top-level free matches every day, you can also enjoy good food and drinks in the hall. Smoothies, soda's and other beverages, meals, snacks and sandwiches, both the bar from our own kitchen and the Happy Food Lovers stand will take care of anything for the inner supporter.

YONEX stand

Tournament sponsor YONEX will be present with a selection of their finest products. Whether you need a new racket, grip, bag or shoes, take a look or ask them for advise and there's always something that matches your needs. Also string service is available so bring your racket and let them make it all set and ready for your own next match.

Parking

There is limited space around the DEGIRO-hall to park cars. We therefore advise visitors to park on the site of the Kennemer Sportcenter, IJsbaanlaan 4A in Haarlem. This is a few minutes walk from DEGIRO-hall. The municipality regularly checks for incorrect parking, so cars that are in the wrong position can expect a fine. Unfortunately we have no influence on this.
