The tournament, which will (as known to Racketlon.com) become the first ever Racketlon tournament in a French-speaking area is also (given a long array of players that never before took part in a world ranking event) destined to make Canada the third biggest Racketlon country in the world in terms of the number of players on the world ranking - surpassed by Sweden and Belgium only. (See nationality count.)
