Event date: 
20 Feb 2010 (All day) - 21 Feb 2010 (All day)
Event details: 

UKU National Mixed championships for all club teams will be held on the outskirts of Coventry at the Alan Higgs Centre on 20-21 Feb 2010. 

This venue has two large rubber crumb indoor pitches.

FOOTWEAR on the rubber crumb surface.

We recommend "astroturf boots" or moulded studs.  Trainers are also fine. 

PLEASE NOTE that blades and screw-in studs are NOT allowed as there is a risk they will damage your ankle and/or the "carpet".  Players with these types of boots will be asked to remove them.

Feedback about this venue and the surface in particular from players at Uni Nationals 2007-8 and Open Indoor Nationals 2009 was very positive.
