Event details: 

The 4th installment from the makers of the UK's Copa series of tournaments comes the Copa del Soul 2014. 7 sun drenched pitches of coastal sand, a private bar and beach and a late party for the entertainment. It's best beach event in the UK. Capacity of 350. so teams we'll be limited to 31 teams + the Karma Army of volunteers.

We once again think we've worked out all the kinks from previous years and would like to thank everyone for their patience with any issues from previous years. The food service was brill last year and the quality was top notch so we're offering that up again. We're doubling up on the service and Karma Army will be trained once again in all things "shower". That said... it feels like we always discover some new problem with portable outdoor showers.  Lets hope this year is the year we nail it.

Registration is available via the Registration tab just to the right.  Payment won't be required until April once the teams have been chosen.  After that payment must be completed by May 1st or your spot will be offered to the waiting list.

THE CANTERBURY CUP: Two surfaces, One cup!

Some people are gearing up for the 5 aside season already. BD is awash with Uni Tournaments; two years ago I ran a Tri tournament; this time it's a Bi Tournament! Kinky? Not at all, I'm running a 5 aside tournament squared, or at least doubled. BEACH and INDOORS at the same tournament at the same venue. You're going to love it.

Where? Canterbury, Kent.
When? 29-30 October
What? Another Halloween tournament run by y'boy, Whippet. 16 teams; 11 competitive games each. 2 surfaces; 1 cup! Expect to party hard.
Cost: £130 - (sorry, beach hire is more expensive than hall hire!)

Maybe you've got an indoor team to play with; maybe this is a chance to reunite all your uni mates; maybe you want to play on a team with only your favourite players from your club team; maybe you want to play on the same team as your girlfriend. If you'd like to bring a team, I'd love to hear from you. Holler at me here:

fatmaude@hotmail.com

I may have a space left if you're lucky, but you'll need to hurry.
 
Thanks y'all,
