The winners of these tournaments come to Toruń at the beginning of July to participate in the league’s final tournament. 31 teams from 10 countries took part in last year’s finals. The players came to visit Toruń from Germany, Russia, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Belarus, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia and Slovakia and Poland, of course.
SENI Cup also means integration of the disabled with the rest of the society. The official opening of the Final Cup in Toruń is accompanied by artistic events that attract not only participants of the SENI Cup but also the residents of Toruń.
