The com­pe­ti­ti­on bet­ween Ger­man ath­le­tes in sword and lan­ce riding will deci­de the order for inter­na­tio­nal com­pe­ti­ti­on.

For the first time sin­ce the start of the glo­bal pan­de­mic, the Ger­man tent-peg­ging riders have the chan­ce to par­ti­ci­pa­te in the clas­sic final run of the Ger­man cham­pi­ons­hips in Cra­win­kel from Sep­tem­ber 10th-12th. The event has been taking place the­re sin­ce 2016. During this tour­na­ment, the Ger­man cham­pi­on will be crow­ned and the star­ting order for inter­na­tio­nal tour­na­ments deci­ded.

Inter­na­tio­nal tra­di­ti­on in Cra­win­kel
Unli­ke the last years, the com­pe­ti­ti­on will take place as a natio­nal tour­na­ment becau­se of the tra­vel restric­tions in place due to the cur­rent pan­de­mic. Pre­vious­ly, natio­nal teams from South Afri­ca, Aus­tra­lia, Gre­at Bri­tain and riders from many other coun­tries com­pe­ted in Cra­win­kel.

The best Ger­man tent peg­gers are com­pe­ting
Five Ger­man teams ent­e­red the tour­na­ment. Once again, par­ti­ci­pants have to com­pe­te in eight dif­fe­rent disci­pli­nes accord­ing to the inter­na­tio­nal regu­la­ti­ons set by the world fede­ra­ti­on ITPF. This inclu­des lan­ce at a tar­get on the ground as an indi­vi­du­al or sec­tion, sword at a tar­get on the ground as an indi­vi­du­al or sec­tion, sword and lan­ce at a tar­get on the ground in sin­gle file and as a pair (half sec­tion ), lan­ce at an over­head ring (ring and peg), sword at an over­head apple (lemon and peg).

Out­si­de and easy to attend
The tour­na­ment takes place on Satur­day after­noon and Sunday morning at the Thü­ren­ge­ti. The event obser­ves all local coro­na regu­la­ti­ons. The host Tent­peg­ging Ger­ma­ny (TPG) once again thanks the direc­tor of the faci­li­ty Heinz Bley and the Ger­man Caval­ry Asso­cia­ti­on lead by Peter Lachen­may­er for their gre­at sup­port that allows TPG to run the cham­pi­ons­hip. The event is expec­ted to attract a gre­at amount of spec­ta­tors, having thril­led and asto­un­ded around 4,000 guests in pre­vious years.
