EPT has started a movement to build the professional disc golf scene in Europe and has proven to be a well-working concept. We at Prodiscus love disc golf, and have been a major supporter of the sport since the start of 2006 and together with the EPT, Prodiscus can directly focus on taking the next steps in professional disc golf in Europe.
EPT solely focuses on elite-level players and events, and Nokia Open will fit this concept perfectly. The help Prodiscus and Nokia Open organizing crew gets from EPT will also take the event to the next level and even more attractive for the players and fans than ever before.”
