WEATHER

The tournament will go ahead in most weather conditions; however, we reserve the right to cancel the tournament should it become too slippery or dangerous to play.

IN THE EVENT OF RAIN / HEAVY SHOWERS

well, we are in England after all…

Teams affected will need to decide whether to carry on competing in the rain or resume when playing conditions improve, without delaying the playing schedule overly.

However, the final decision will lie with the Tournament organisers who may also change the schedule if necessary.

Tournament information pack will be released in July
