Our history

Our regulars probably still remember the first edition of the Amsterdam Senior International Open in Nieuw-Vennep. Shortly before the start of the tournament there were still a lot of challenges: which location, who are going to participate, how can we schedule the matches best? Essential elements for a successful week!

From grade 5 towards grade 1

Our regulars probably still remember the first edition of the Amsterdam Senior International Open in Nieuw-Vennep. Shortly before the start of the tournament there were still a lot of challenges: which location, who are going to participate, how can we schedule the matches best? Essential elements for a successful week!

The Amsterdam Senior International Open began as an grade 5 tournament. Within a few years we reached a grade 2 status, which we were very proud of. The present grade 1 is even more of a challenge and we hope to show we have earned it. Rogier Liefbroer and Rob Menko have been in the organization for 9 years in a row now. Since the beginning they have been supported by Paulien van den Tempel, who is responsible for the PR of the tournament and brings in many players every year. Since three years now, the team is expanded with Miriam de Groot who is no stranger to many of our loyal participants. Last year,  Frank van Herpen joined the team. He is a welcome addition in the financial and administrative sector.

Unfortunately, due to construction work at the location of our tournament we had to cancel our 2018 edition. But we came back stronger. Our 2019 will be held at a completely renovated national tennis center. Some of the building activities may still be in  the process of completion. and we have reached a grade 1 status!

Our tournament is known for its great atmosphere, beautiful venue and strong competition. And this is how we want it to be! We continue to strive for the ideal mix of top tennis and socializing. Besides the matches we will organize a great Players Dinner, our famous High Tea, and – upon request –  a nice sightseeing trip for our contestants from abroad. Moreover, every tennis player will receive a goody bag with surprising products!

Will we see you at this years’ edition?

Testimonials

what people say about us

There are many reasons why I like to play the Amsterdam Open in Amstelveen. I have visited ASIO five times now and each and every time I had the best of fun. We had interesting matches and the people were very friendly. There are not many places where I can still compete in my own age group. Moreover, everybody speaks English, whereas I speak nothing but English.
