Beach Nationals 2017 is now open for registration.  These will be held on the 16th and 17th September on Sandbanks beach, the same location as last year's competition.  Please read on or look here for more information.

The planned format is a three division, 8-team tournament for Open, Women’s, and Mixed. However, if there are insufficient entries for a particular division then it may not go ahead, and another division expanded according to demand. This decision will be made once the closing date has passed. Please note that accommodation is not available for this tournament, so consider this in your planning when arranging a team. A list of nearby hotels and campsites will be sent to entrants. 

Entry is made by emailing sunburn.bournemouth@outlook.com with the following information:

- Team name

- Contact Name

- Contact Email and Phone

- Secondary Contact

- Additional relevant information (previous beach tournaments entered, finishing position, player details)

 

The deadline for submitting a team is Thursday 10th August. After this date, if over-subscribed, the entry rules will be applied to teams as outlined below. Selected teams will be required to make payment of £160, which will be detailed in their confirmation email.

 

ENTRY RULES

For tournaments that are over-subscribed at the closing date the following rules will apply, in order:

- Teams from clubs who have completed Club Affiliation to the UKU will have priority over those who have not

 - Teams not on the blacklist (for late dropouts at previous events) will get priority over those who are

 - Teams finishing in the top 1/3 of the same event in the previous year*

- Teams finishing in the top 1/3 of places in any 2017 beach tournament*

 

 Additional notes:

First teams will NOT get priority over second teams - it is so easy to simply change the name of a 'second team' to avoid such a rule, which would disadvantage those 'proper' clubs who have a real identity.

 If spaces remain after the closing date, teams will be awarded spaces based on the order of DATE (not exact time) that payment was sent. This will be assumed to be the date payment was received unless there is additional information (e.g. screenshot of transfer, postmark on stamp etc.)

If there remain too many teams - which cannot be separated by the above - for the remaining places, a lottery will be run for ONLY those inseparable teams, for those places.

 

 

*We're obviously not able to check that your roster is sufficiently related to the roster for that previous tournament under the same name - but we expect teams to apply some SotG to that.
