We believe RITTO can be, as always, one of the highlights of 2017 in Cluj, putting on show our wonderful group of volunteers from the Little People Association who are now renowned everywhere internationally and especially as we have now added the RITTO Junior Tournament. Our Patron, His Royal Highness Prince Radu of Romania has promised to be with us on this special occasion.

Both new terminals are open at Cluj airport and we can assure you of the excellent facilities for the disembarkment and embarkment of the disabled. Our minibuses are all booked to assist with the best possible transport for the participants. We can also assure you the benefits of an excellent and professional sporting environment and we all hope countries attending will appreciate our unique Romanian hospitality and the commitment of our Organising Committee. We look forward to meeting those who attended in the latter years and hope to make friends with all newcomers.
