YOUR EVENT TO EPT-X?
European Pro Tour (EPT) is the elite level tour for professional players in Europe. In season 2023 the tour includes seven high quality events and a special All-Stars event as season closing event. Our goal is to offer European players possibility to tour in Europe and at the same time grow the sport continental wide. We have plans to expand the European Pro Tour in near future (2024/2025) with a couple of new events, spreading the tour more and more across Europe.
Another goal in the future is to have multiple tours running around Europe. Along European Pro Tour for top level professionals, we are planning own tours for Masters, Amateurs and Juniors. This vision requires a lot of new events, new destinations and new organizers.
Experience events are something with the original NBDG-X idea. NBDG-X was the predecessor for EPT-X and its main idea was to offer experiences for players from all skill levels. These events has always been more than just a competition. Imagine playing in a PDGA competition and joining a wine yard visit in the evening. Or having a beach party under Spanish sun after your competition round. Maybe having a boat trip in Amsterdam channels…
All this is something EPT-X is planned for. Do you want your event to be part of EPT-X in 2023? Or 2024? (Application details in the end of the page)
