After the tournament, the evening continued with socializing and entertainment with live music, in the bowling alley, until the early hours of the morning, where cups and special prizes were also distributed for the tournament winners.
Congratulations to all participants and of course to the winners of the 12th UMAG OPEN 2020.
At the same time, we would like to thank all the sponsors, the Office of the Umag Tourist Board, the city of Umag and its services, the sports facility of the city of Umag, which provided us with support in organizing this tournament.
Finally, a special thanks goes to our volunteers and friends of the club, 44 of them, who made a lot of effort to organize the tournament and without whose help all this would not be possible.

Thanks again to everyone
