Tournaments

All tournaments will take place on Saturday afternoons between the 1st weekend in September and the last weekend in April. Exact start & finish times will vary, but will usually be 4 – 9pm. There are 5 or 6 tournaments in each division, each team will attend 4 dates over the course of the season.

In each division at least one tournament will take place outside at the beginning or end of the season, to take advantage of warmer conditions. This is to help reduce the overall cost of the leagues. To help aid attendance, tournaments will not be scheduled when other large kayaking and canoe polo events are taking place where possible. Events such as the Tyne Tour & BUCS polo are all taken into consideration.

University teams must contact the league organiser if they have any problems regarding the attendance of September tournaments due to the university calendar.

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.)
