Really?

The original cut-off is 240. Last year the final cut-off was 366 and players like Niland, Masson, Burzi, Cakl, Junaid, Armstrong, Westerhof and Fornell made the cut. Now I know the field will get a lot worse due to the timing of the Alphen Challenger, but it seems that they are profiting from the fact that there is not a German Challenger in the same week this year, and that the Donetsk Challenger just got cancelled. They are only competing with Genova, Sevilla and St. Remy right now. Genova will get the bigger names, but Alphen is not doing too badly.

I wish I could go. It's a really nice event, and I strongly recommend any Dutch posters to visit. It's also got a women's ITF event, so there are many matches to choose from. The organization is pretty good, catering is good too and you can easily interact with players should you want to.

I don´t think so. With several tournaments (Genova with more money and points)at the same time, this field is great. I don´t know what some people expect from challengers of the two lowest categories.
Maybe they just look at the ranking positions and forget that these guys are also fantastic players.

I think I will go this year at least one day.

That's not a fair comparison. You can't really compare ATP 250 events to 500 events either. Scheveningen has more prize money, is a very established tournament (it was actually downgraded in terms of prize money this year) that has been lauded by both players and the ATP in the past, and is held at a very convenient time, right after a Grand Slam (rather than during, as it the case with Alphen - though Alphen now profits from the fact that it is during the main draw competition rather than qualifying of the US Open).

And despite all this, the tournaments' cut-off is not likely to differ very much. The final cut in Scheveningen was low, in fact (289); there were some top players, but the field was quite diverse in terms of quality.
