Entries are now open for the 2020 semi-finals.

Teams of three.

All welcome, from beginner to expert.

U19 and U11 sections. Southern and Northern semi-finals with the final in early April

This has been a very successful and popular 'grass roots' event over the last six years and we hope to build our numbers yet again.

As usual, I will be updating entries here as they come in.

Time now to think about entering the two semi-finals.

Early entries are very helpful for the organisers. They help us to plan ahead, in order to give everyone the best possible experience.

Thanks.

We are now up to 84 teams of three in the southern semi final.

Five teams in the north. Vast areas of the country unrepresented.

The closing date for entries in the south is 5th Jan. I’m willing to keep entry open for as long as possible in the north.

Teams of three, that’s all.

This is a final reminder that entries close for the southern event in six days time. Absolutely no late entries will be permitted.

Happy New Year to all.

The ECF National Schools Girls semi finals Jan 2020

It is with regret that I announce the postponement of the final of the above event, due to take place on 4/5 April. The safety and health of all concerned must be our top priority.

As yet, it is impossible to name a replacement date. When the situation clarifies, I will be back in touch.


Best Regards.

I regret to tell you that we will have to cancel the finals for this year.

St Catherine’s has made the very sensible decision not to host any major events during the Autumn Term. Only those from the immediate community of the school will be in attendance.

We would love to welcome everyone, but can’t compromise on safety.

The status of the 2021 tournament will be under constant review. I expect to go ahead, but can’t guarantee anything. I’ll keep in touch as time passes.

It’s an unfortunate situation. Thanks for all your support and understanding.
