Due to  the uncertain sanitary situation, EPTA-Belgium W-B and the municipality of Grez-Doiceau have been forced to postpone once again the 15th « R.I.J.P. » scheduled for March 2021.

We wish to maintain the 2021 competition as a live event, and have selected these new dates: November 2021, from 23rd to 28th.

Following Belgian rules, the COVID Safe Ticket and a properly worn facial mask are mandatory to enter the Cultural Center. More info here (in French).

The schedule of the candidates is now available on this page.
