Players to preferably wear Comets Kit, but can wear any kit they like and may invite friends and family to take part in the appropriate age group tournaments.

A minimum of 20 players in each group is required to make the tournaments work and so please encourage players to attend.

A £2.50 sub per player will be collected by your team manager on the day.

Players at each age grouping will be divided into 4 equal teams at 9.20am and 1.20pm for the morning and afternoon tournaments respectively. Team captains will then draw a team name from their group hat and then all teams will play 3 group matches, then group semi-finals followed by a group final between the two top points scoring teams.

All group winners will receive a winners medal.

There will be a BBQ and a drinks tent running all day. Plus a tea and cake stand and ice creams will be available.

Please try to walk, but if you need to drive, there is parking at Loddon Hall and surrounding roads.


  1. All matches will be 5 aside. Where possible, do not have substitutes, to ensure all players get the most time on the ball.
