It’s time to start assembling your squads for the 2017 UK Clubs Championship! This unique one-day event pits teams of five players against each other in groups, similar to the World Cup, with the top teams in each group qualifying for the main knockout phase, and all other teams in a consolation knockout – guaranteeing at least five games for everyone. There are cash prizes for the winners and runners-up in both flights plus the Tutchings Trophy – named after Phil Tutchings, who was instrumental in creating and running the event in past years.
This is the sixth time the event has been held and having enjoyed the hospitality of Bristol and Manchester in previous years, our rotation around the country takes us to the Priory Centre in St Neots in Cambridgeshire, particularly convenient for the South East, Midlands and East Anglia. It’s also a larger venue than previous years and this time we can guarantee enough space for twenty teams to take part.
We are hoping to get teams from across the UK taking part – we will accept your club’s B and even C & D teams if space permits, but at the moment there is a strict limit of twenty teams and preference will be given to different clubs. Spaces within each category – A teams, B teams and so on – will be allocated in order of payment of registration fees, so don’t delay if you want to enter, start gathering your team(s) together now! Full details are available from the event page.
