Locations – from Rotterdam Ahoy to ‘city center courts’

Rotterdam, the second largest city in the Netherlands, will host the inaugural edition of the European Para Championships in 2023. The main hub, and therefore the venue for multiple sports, is Rotterdam Ahoy. In addition to this exceptional world-class indoor location, the European Para Championships 2023 will also use various outdoor venues in the heart of Rotterdam. These ‘city center courts’ ensure that the parasports come to the people, instead of the other way around. In this way, we present unique para sports in a high-quality way to Rotterdam and its residents & visitors. This allows them to get acquainted with parasport of the highest level. Enjoy top sports at unique locations!

Rotterdam Ahoy

Most of the competitions will take place in Rotterdam Ahoy, without a doubt one of the best and most professional event venues in the Netherlands. Very well known as the ‘biggest on earth’ since 1971. It offers a base for international artists, top sports professionals, politicians and celebrities. It switches effortlessly from a Justin Bieber concert to the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. Another perfect example of Rotterdam Ahoy’s extensive possibilities is the Eurovision Song Contest, which took place there in May 2021. Of course, Rotterdam Ahoy is also perfectly accessible for disabled visitors. The same applies to any other locations that will be used during the event.

City center courts

Many outdoor locations in Rotterdam will also be the scene of battles for medals. For example, the finals of the Para Archery will be held on the Kop van Zuid and the best wheelchair tennis players will compete for gold on the Schouwburgplein. With these ‘city center courts’ the organization brings the parasport to the people and presents the sports in a unique way to the city, its inhabitants and visitors.
