A + W divisions will be held at Richardson Evans Memorial Playing Fields in Wimbledon, London.

Tour 1 will have an exciting extra twist this year with a number of top European Clubs making plans to attend both the Open and Women's divisions in the run-up to WUCC 2010.  The list of teams is shown on the right hand side of this page (in no particular order).

The schedule will be available as soon as possible, but for now:

Games on Saturday will not start before 9am.  Some teams will get a later start and we'll try to confirm who they are as soon as we can.  We are planning for all games to be completed by just after 6pm - although most teams will finish in the previous time slot.

Games on Sunday will start earlier than usual - possibly 8:30am - to help visiting teams complete their games and catch their flights.  This will affect most teams.

The final time slot will start at approx 2pm.  We are planning to start the finals at 2.30pm, but reserve the right to move it earlier if one or more of the finalists have flights to catch.

Teams outside the top 16 from 2009 will be given an extension on the payment deadline depending on how quickly we can resolve which and how many of those teams can enter.

Accomodation and transport: 

Public Transport

PLEASE CHECK TRANSPORT FOR LONDON WEBSITE for the latest details and planned disruption.

This venue is very easy to reach by public transport. get a train or tube to Putney station (NOT East Putney!!!!) and then exit. Directly outside, is a bus stop where the 85 heads straight to the fields. Get on the 85 and it will head out of Putney and onto the back roads alongside the A3. Stay with the bus until it reaches a T junction with the A3. It will turn right here and then you need to wait until the bus has passed Asda and Texaco on the left and get off by the Roehampton Campus stop. The fields are there on your left. You can get to Putney quickly from Clapham Junction, Vauxhall, Waterloo and also on the District line. You should be able to reach the grounds easily from places like Kingston (e.g. using the #85 in the opposite direction) and Wimbledon but please check http://www.tfl.gov.uk/

Coming by car

You can only get to the fields from the southbound A3. The turning into the grounds is at the bottom of the hill after Roehampton, just after a large ASDA superstore (on the left) and basically opposite the Robin Hood Gate entrance to Richmond Park. 

If you are coming from outside London the simplest route is to use Jn 10 of the M25 which puts you on the A3. Arguably it might be quicker to cross London if coming from the North or West depending on the time of day.  If coming North up the A3 towards London, you will NOT be able to access the fields unless you turn around and head back down the southbound side of the road. To do this, follow the A3 towards London and at the Robin Hood roundabout (A308 to Kingston on your left) head straight on and then take the next left turn, signposted to Putney Vale Cemetary. This will take you under the road and allow you to join the A3 heading south on the other side. Rejoin the A3, stay in the left hand lane and then take the left turn which will be sign-posted Richardson Evans. If you miss the turning, as it's quite possible to do, then don't panic, get in the right hand lane and do another one 180 degree turn at the roundabout and try again!

 

Accommodation

There will be free camping available on site.

If we can get any local hotel deals set up we'll let you know.
