Just over a week to go and counting. Thanks to those many counties who have already entered (and sent their entry fees :) ).

Is there a current list of entrants?

Did our treasurer get around to sending the entry fee? :oops:

Numbers of teams by age group entered to date (including those which we are told are "in the post" *):

County U18 U13

Berkshire 1 3
Sussex 1 2
Kent 1 2
Warwickshire 1 0
Devon 1 0
Greater Manchester 1 2
Northamptonshire 1 1
Middlesex 1 1
Essex 0 1
Cambridgeshire 1 1
Lincolnshire 1 1

TOTALS 10 14

The above would imply over 200 players participating, which is already a slight increase on 2011. In addition to the above we have had varying levels of interest expressed by 8 further counties.


*To answer Alex's question - the cheque from Warwickshire is one of those "in the post".

Thanks.

Looks like I'd best get chasing players/treasurers up! :oops:

Can the Under 13 figures be broken down into Open and Minor? Buckinghamshire shall be entering an Under 18 and Under 13 Minor team.

and we are aware of a number more entries that are en route.


Due to the (over recent years anyway) unprecedented demand, and capacity constraints at the venue, we regret to announce that we are no longer able to accept any further entries beyond those who have already been in direct dialogue with Chris Archer-Lock.

Thanks to all those who have entered / are in the process of entering, and apologies to anyone who was considering entering but will now not be able to.

We very much look forward to an exciting, competitive and successful event in a month's time.

Looking forward to next weekend, hope all the players are too.

Hopefully all participants / their parents have already heard this from their team managers: there is a shortage of car parking at Eton as a result of some construction work. As such we urge everyone to share cars / other transport as much as possible.

There are also two excellent railway stations just across the river in Windsor. A very pleasant 15 mins walk from the venue. Windsor and Eton Riverside serves stations into London Waterloo; Windsor and Eton Central links to Slough and from there to both London Paddington and Reading.
