Last Sunday, February 26, the Pavilhão dos Lombos arena in Cascais hosted the Portuguese tryouts for the WPJJ in Abu Dhabi. With around 800 spectators crowding the venue, among them the ambassadors of the United Arab Emirates and Iraq, the candidates to win all-expenses-paid trips to Abu Dhabi put on a show, and the winners added some heft to their bank accounts.

It’s worth noting that the April event is open to anyone wishing to visit the Emirates and compete. For those who want to join the fray without having to shell out their own money, the next chance is at the England tryouts, put together by the relentless Bráulio Estima. To register, click here!
