The EiPSI Open is the annual tennis tournament of EiPSI: the Eindhoven Institute for the Protection of Systems and Information.

Registration is possible until Friday, September 19, 23:59 and is completely free. No experience (or own tennis racket) is required 🙂
Players compete in the EiPSI Open in two different groups. In Group A, tennis professionals compete for the prestigious EiPSI Open Cup. Group B is for semi-profs who want to compete for the (somewhat prestigious) Fair Play Award. Both awards are kindly offered by the tournament’s sponsors, E.S.T.T.V.
