Töölö Sports Hall is where most of the competitive action of the Worlds tournament will take place. Töölön kisahalli, or Kisis for short, in Finnish, it is a former Olympic arena and currently home to the basketball club Torpan Pojat. It offers diverse yet inexpensive training facilities for the citizens of Helsinki, while also hosting national level competitions in various sports such as volleyball, fencing, gymnastics, and martial arts.

Töölö Sports Field (Bollis) is a series of outdoor soccer fields conveniently located just a stone’s throw away from Kisis. It is LIKELY to be the venue of Intermediate Singles and Intermediate Doubles Net, as well as all net consolation matches for the 17th place and below. In case there will be less competitors than the organizers currently anticipate, it is also possible that no matches need to be played outdoors.

    My friends and I very anxious about watching the matches. Nevertheless we didn’t know about it until today. Would it still be possible for us to attend the event as speculators? For instance, could we go straight to the venue and buy the ticket at the entrance? I look forward to hearing from you and many thanks in advance!


  • Clint says:

    Ilkka, is there a fee to get in? The website does not exactly tell about prices for entry into the competition, could you provide me some details as well? My friends and I also wish to see the competition, but where exactly is the tournament office located at Kisahalli?



  • Teemu Kusipää says:

    Dear Clint,

    The entrance is free, and to participate as a spectator you don’t need to visit the tournament office (unless you really want to). There are signs that will guide you to the office if you want to go there.
