In September, Umag will host the ITF Super-Seniors World Championship for singles and teams, the most relevant annual competition in this veteran group, for the first time.
It will last for 14 days, occupying the entire tennis capacities of both towns, as a top-notch competitive spectacle demonstrating that age is of no importance when it comes to good tennis.
As many as 900 male and female players from around the world are expected to make their appearance. While the first week of this big sporting event is reserved for teams, the second is earmarked for singles.
This is a highest order competition for veterans over 60 years of age and NW Istria was chosen due to its excellent sports infrastructure, accommodation capacities, mild climate and a number of other advantages, especially the international reputation gained by the organization of an ATP tournament.
Umag can now stand side by side with Turkish Antalya, Australian Perth and South-African Cape Town, all of which have previously been entrusted with the hosting of the Super-Seniors World Championship by the ITF.
