The return of the legendary Finnish Footbag Open after global pandemic. 2020 event was canceled due to restrictions and 2021 event also was postponed couple of times. With some restrictions still on, we only managed to get 2 courts with 6hrs of playing time for our competiton. So on a very short notice, we managed to get total of 10 players to compete for the titles. To make competion and games more intresting, tournament director decided to use a totally new "out of a shoe" format with raffled teams on the first round of doubles. After first two rounds of doubles, players who had most points teamed up for semis and final. The format was a success and everyone had some good time and games. Most likely something similar will be udes in future FFO tournaments too. After doubles it was time for short singles competiton with 4 players. So one pool with winner going to final and losers to bronze game. Big fun after a long break!! Keep kicking
