Terracina in Italy will host the 2019 Beach Tennis World Championships, the International Tennis Federation has announced, with competition running from June 10 to 16.
The city will host the Championships for the next two years, succeeding another Italian city, Cervia, which has successfully hosted the tournament for the previous six years.
The Beach Tennis World Championships are the flagship individual event of the Beach Tennis Tour.
This year the event will also be the final opportunity for the players to obtain ranking points that will count towards the inaugural Association of National Olympic Committees World Beach Games in San Diego from October 10 to 14.
As part of the points system reform, this year's World Championships will allocate ranking points.
Winners will gain 550 points, with 330 going to finalists, 198 to semi-finalists, 99 to quarter-finalists, 50 to those reaching the round-of-16 and 25 to those reaching the round-of-32.
