The week in review

The Ski and Snowboarding season dominates the week with no fewer than 16 World Cup tournaments stretching from China to the USA. Apart from next week when sport events will be taking a short break for Christmas and most others have completed the 2019 season, snow sports will be approaching the busiest periods in January and February next year. Staying with a winter sport and Bandy will fit in a World Championship before the end of the year. The tournament is for men born in 1998 or later and is held every two years. On this occasion the city of Arkhangelsk in the north of European Russia will be the host. The Padel season draws to a close with the Grand Finale in Barcelona featuring both women and men from Thursday to Sunday. One of the major FIE World Cup events each year takes place at the London Olympia from Monday to Sunday.

The Junior Water Polo World Championships in Kuwait City approaches the final week with the championship winner to be decided on Friday. The PDC Darts World Championship started yesterday at Alexandra Palace in London with the final only on the 1st January 2020. In Golf the Presidents Cup is currently approaching the final day in Melbourne. The competition features two captains with teams made up of the best USA and International players.
