Most importantly enjoy the weekend!!

Please can we ask you to respect the refs and volunteers at all times! If they are out; buy them a drink/shot/dirty pint.

Introduce yourself to three people the tournament relies upon;

  • Rich Crowder, founder, I challenge you to over shake his hand, wait until it is so uncomfortable he has to pull his hand away!
  • Brian Sly, chief ref, welcome him with a high five (high ten if you get carried away) every time you see him! 
  • Fooks, timetable master, give him team hugs anytime you wish!

Extra credit to those teams who manage the above on and off court!!

Lastly - Always wear your tournament stripes!
