Please find attached an entry form for the 2015-16 NW regional canoe polo league.

There are a few subtle changes to last season. We will be running 4 straight leagues (rather that a split division 1). Teams will need to apply for a division. Final allocations completed after entries close. We have also clarified the potential for ‘playing down’.

Entries need to be completed by 31 July.

All remaining monies can be paid split between the tournaments attended or in lump before the season close. Also a reminder to those yet to pay, the entry fee and last tournament fee is due before the season starts. Any queries regarding fees, please contact the treasurer details can be found on the contacts page, or at the first tournaments in person.

2014/2015 Season Final Division Allocations

Thank you everyone for your entries into the new season of the NW&C Polo League. You will find your Division allocations in this file: NW Teams 2014-15

For Divisions 2-4, we now need you to confirm which tournaments you would prefer to miss. Please let Rob know your preferences as soon as possible. Delay will likely mean that you will not get any choice as to which tournaments you will play in.

Division 1
As per my previous email, the split of teams for the two seeding tournaments is as stated in the attached file. On conclusion of the two seeding tournaments, Division 1a and Division 1b will be formed. Teams will then have to attend both of the two tournaments in their respective divisions (Div 1a: 8 Nov and 13 Dec; Div1b: 6 Dec and 7 Feb).

Division 2
Due to the fact that we have only 7 teams entered, division 2 have been reduced to a four tournament league of which each team will attend 3 tournaments. Please let me know which tournament you would prefer not to attend. If you are flexible, please let me know as this will help with organisation.

The reduction in the number of tournaments means that we will lose one of the four Cheadle dates. This will be determined once tournament preferences are known. The scheduled dates are 4 Oct (Liverpool), 22 Nov (Cheadle), 17 Jan (Cheadle), 7 Feb (Cheadle) and 28 Feb (Cheadle).

Division 3
This division will run as advertised. There will be five tournaments and each team will play at four. Please let me know which tournaments you cannot attend. If you are flexible, please let me know as this will help with organisation.

The dates are 11 Oct (Liverpool), 15 Nov (Cheadle), 13 Dec (Cheadle), 31 Jan (Cheadle), 14 Mar (Cheadle).

Division 4
Due to the fact that we have ten teams entered, this league will expand to a 6 tournament league with each team playing at four. Please let me know which tournaments you would prefer not to attend. If you are flexible, please let me know as this will help with organisation.

The dates are 11 Oct (Liverpool), 15 Nov (Cheadle), 13 Dec (Cheadle), 31 Jan (Cheadle), 14 Mar (Cheadle), 25 April – (Trentham, venue and date TBC.)

Good luck and have fun.
