Any player can register for a competition in a higher category (eg all players can register in MPO), but you can only play in a lower category if your rating allows it, eg someone with a rating of 801 cannot play Purple).
Players who are not PDGA members and do not have a rating can play the Purple category only if they have not played PDGA tournaments so far, or they have played PDGA tournaments and the last 6 rounds are not worth more than 800 rating points on average. If those rounds are worth more than 800 then they can play the Green, Red or MPO / FPO category. A player who does not have a rating and has more than 850 rating points in the last 6 rounds cannot play the Green category, but can play Red or MPO / FPO.

The number of participants is limited to 90, that is, the competition will be played in a maximum of 18 groups of 5 players.
The registration fee for the tournament in the MPO, FPO, Red and Green categories is €20, and €10 for the Purple and MJ18 categories, and includes the organization of the competition, a fee for the PDGA, a fee for the Croatian Flying Disc Association and a trophy for the winner of each category.

The participation fee will be paid in cash at the tournament to representatives of FDK Nova Gradiška.

To sign up for the competition, open a separate registration page.
Competition results and live results will be published on the PDGA website.

Concept of play
The competition will take place in the following format:
Round 1 - groups will be formed with mixed categories and strength groups determined according to PDGA rating. We will try not to put players from the same clubs / countries in the same groups in the first round, so that through the game they can socialize with players they do not see regularly.
Round 2 - groups formed according to the result, mixed categories
Round 3 - groups formed by result, without mixing categories

Baskets that will be used on 12 holes are locally produced, while Disc Golf Park targets will be used on 6 holes.
The tees will be covered with artificial grass turf.
The course map will be available during May.
