There is an entry fee of £5 per player and prizes will be awarded as Amazon vouchers (value of prizes will be dependent on number of entries).

WhatsApp Group

We are continuing to use a WhatsApp group that we created for the last tournament to allow players to chat socially. Joining this is optional, and whilst we may post some notifications in the chat, all updates will be sent to players by email so you won't miss out on anything if you don't join this group.
