For this upcoming 2024 season, European Roundnet Association is continuing to have the Pro division (formerly known as Gold) across its ETS events in the open, women’s, and mixed category. Ideally, it will serve as an inspiration to unify divisions across Europe and its respective NGBs.
How can players qualify for EURA Open Pro? There are multiple options:
1. Having qualified for Pro in the 2022-2023 season. Check out the list here.
2. Pro status will be awarded to players (in non-pro teams) in contender division at each of the five ETS events, that place in the top 3. Additional rule applies.
If a team playing in the contender division, consisting of a Pro qualified player and non-Pro qualified, finishes in top 3, the team in 4th place will receive Pro status. A non-Pro player cannot qualify for Pro with a Pro player. Two pro players cannot play in contender.
3. Becoming a Spikeball Inc “Premier” qualified player according to Spikeball Tour Series criterion in North America or Europe. Premier qualification automatically transfers into EURA Pro
4. At EURA selected sanctioned events.

How can players qualify for EURA Women’s Pro? There are multiple options:
1. Having qualified for Pro due to your results from the previous season (ETS podium players, top 12 teams from Euros Pro division, top 20 individual women’s players from EURA ranking). Check out the list here.
2. Women’s Pro status will be awarded to players (in non-pro teams) in Women’s Contender division at each of the five ETS events that make it to the final (top 2). Additional rules apply.
If a team playing in the Women’s Contender division, consisting of a Pro qualified player and non-Pro qualified, finishes in top 2, the team in 3rd place will receive Pro status. A non-Pro player cannot qualify for Pro with a Pro player. Two Women’s Pro players cannot play in Women’s Contender.
Exception: If there are not enough teams for the Pro division and those teams play in Women’s Contender, they will be placed in power pools. The Pro status will be awarded to the following teams that are not composed of 2 Pro players or of 1 non-Pro and 1 Pro player team. Example: 5 women’s teams are signed up for Women’s Pro, therefore play in the Women’s Contender Division and get top 5, then the status will be awarded to the best non-Pro team (6th place) in Women’s Contender.
3. Wildcard – if you are a non-European player and want to play in the Pro division, please send us an email to make that request.
4. At EURA selected sanctioned events - more information on EURA sanctioned events will follow in the upcoming weeks.
How can players qualify for EURA Mixed Pro?
A team can play in mixed pro if it is composed of a women’s Pro player and an open Pro player.
Requalification Guidelines for 2025
Players that were qualified for Open Pro in the 2024 calendar year will qualify for the 2025 season, if they play a tournament and make it pass the first full round of brackets or are in the top 50% following pool play.
Requalification guidelines for women's pro 2025 are not finalized yet.
Can a Pro player play with a non-Pro player at ETS events?
Yes, however, only in the contender division. In addition, the non-Pro player will not qualify for Pro even if their team finishes in top 3.
