Pre registration is now up and running for the tournament here. :D For anyone who is unsure of your rank if you haven't been to a national tournament before you will be ranked Novice and for everyone else you can find your rank here Players are allowed to enter divisional events higher than their rank. Ie a Semi Pro can enter Pro singles.

Have you got an Event up on Facebook, Alex...? That's also a good way to remind people about it.

I am looking for a partner(s) for Saturday/Sunday.

I just moved in to London on Sunday. Last 2 years I played in Poland for Wroclaw Foosball Club. Tornado/Fireball are my second-favourite tables after Garlando (my home table) - I used to practice my pull shot on them in the Wroclaw foosball training center. I can do both defense (pull shot, kicks, passes 2-3) and forward (brush pass, snake shot) - with slight preference to playing in the defense on Tornado.
