The sports program of the German Students Championship is constantly changing and so after a break of several years, the German Fistball Students Open are back in the competition calendar and have been conducted on 6 and 7 April at the University of Bielefeld.

At the foot of the Teutoburg Forest, the titles have be awarded in two tournament forms, Mixed and Men.
Since the first edition in 2012, more and more university sports facilities in Germany have been incorporating Fistball into their sports program, thus giving the sport a steadily growing popularity.

E.g. in Bielefeld there is a university sports group, which not only participated at this year’s Open, but also in several amateur tournaments. The group consists not so much of active or former Fistballer players, but much more of students for whom the sport is new territory. This fits much to the character of the Open, in which no more than two active club players per team should be on the field of play.

A total of six mixed and three men’s teams from all over Germany participated in Bielefeld including teams from the University of Leipzig, University of Hannover, University of Bonn, University of Oldenburg, the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and the host Bielefeld University.
