The outdoor Italian season started this weekend with an international tournament in Paderno Dugnano on the concrete course.» Complete results and statistics from the tournament in Paderno
105 players took part in this tournament that was played with light rain and quite cold temperature all day long.
The jury decided to cut one round and make the tournament ends after 2 rounds to let players have the right time to dry the lanes and play with the best conditions possible.
The overall victory went to the young Emanuele Prestinari, MGC Novi Ligure, 13 years old, who played like an very experienced player at the difficult conditions.
