We are delighted to announce that you can now enter the 2015 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 four 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.
We are hoping to get teams from across the UK taking part – we will accept your club’s B and even C teams if space permits, but there is a strict limit of sixteen teams and preference will be given to different clubs. Don’t delay if you want to enter! Full details are available from the event page.
