In order to compete you need to be a member of the club & wear the club colours. Deadlines for entries, the Kent League require 14 days (you cannot turn up on day) – the championship matches require longer from 4 to 8 weeks, so watch out for notices.
Entry costs – the club pays for your entry, but we need to know you are serious about competing. National and regional champs we will need a deposit, refunded on the day
Please share transport where possible as parking can be an real issue at venues.
