everyone who loves tennis to come to this tournament. Thank you very much Dubrovnik DuB Bowl!“

“This was the first time I played DuB Bowl in Dubrovnik and it was a fantastic experience! The final day was super cool with a great atmosphere during the final and I am happy I came through as the winner after a tough match in three sets agains a great opponent. Next year I am too old to defend my title, but I will for sure recommend my younger friends to go and play. The activities in the evenings such as the pizza evening and the visit to the cinema were also fun. Thanks again to Pasko and everybody who makes this tournament possible and hope to see you on the tour!
U11 GIRLS’ ELA NALA MILIĆ (SLOVENIA)
I would highly recommend Dubrovnik Dub Bowl to all the young players out there, because of the competition quality, amazing organization, kind and helpfull people who contributed to the overall experience. The feeling was like a Grand Slam. I am looking forward to next year.
U11 BOYS’ ZACH STEPHENS (UK)
“The organization is very good, I like the way they do it. You get minimum 4 and
maximum 7 matches and matches. It is really good because in some tournaments,
you lose once and you only get one match. I would highly recommend it to people
who would like to come next year, as it is a great tournament to join.”
