Getting down with the kidz (that's how they spell it these days right?) I believe most pre-tournament talk/announcements are happening on the Facebook page -

https://www.facebook.com/events/1581531238778477/

So probably best to direct all things through here if possible!

It would also be rather helpful if anyone going could put that they're going on the fb page (above). It helps with local promotion if it looks like it's going to be a decent sized event through social media etc. Thanks!

Team Event News!

Entry eligibility

1. Each team needs to be made of members of a registered BFA Club. Don't have a BFA Club? No problem! You can set one up in 2 minutes here: http://www.britfoos.com/node/add/club .
2. Each registered BFA Club can enter more than one team e.g. Hereford A, Hereford B, Hereford C etc.
3. If you have a team of players entered into the BFA league then it is eligible to enter. 
4. Teams are made up of 4-7 players. Should a team be a player or 2 short, then players without a club may join them, upon approval of the tournament organiser. We don’t want ‘superstar’ teams of players from 4 corners of the country getting together, that wouldn’t be in the spirit of this event!
5. A BFA Club must be made up of players who either live within 40 miles of that club or who regularly (defined as 10 or more visits in a rolling calendar year) frequent it as a player or play for them in the league.

Format
Group matches each game is first to 7. All 5 games will need to be played. Groups will be drawn at random. 
Knock out matches are first to 7. 5th game is played as a decider if required.
Please remember all games will be handicapped.

D=Doubles with S=Singles

D1
S1
D2
S2
D3

Stipulations and restrictions.
- No player from D1 can play in S1. 
- Maximum of two games per player. 
- The 2 singles matches have to be played by 2 different players
- Each captain has 5 minutes to write their team down and the swap with the opposition.

Teams are picked for each match in a blind draft (i.e. you pick your team without seeing the opponent's line up).

We encourage teams to wear their own team kit during the team event to create a sense of club identity.

The emphasis on this event is fun! Team events with good natured rivalries can be utterly brilliant. And we hope this event will be exactly that!

Hotel booked!

Looking forward to some competitive Garlando action after a rather long break.

Need partners for OD and PD if anyone is interested.
