29 Okt 2017

Dear Korfers,

Edinburgh University Korfball Club cordially invites you to the Edinburgh International Korfball Tournament 2017!

The tournament will be held on the 20th and 21st January 2017, with an introductory social on the evening of the 19th to allow the teams to get to know each other before the serious stuff begins on court on Saturday morning. It's going to be a cracking weekend!

We will be sticking with a 24 team format, which is usually made up of a mix of club and university teams from all over the United Kingdom, as well as teams from across Europe.

Please find attached, the information pack outlining some of the details of the tournament and the application form.

To enter, please fill in the attached application form and return it to eukc-tournament@hotmail.com before 20th November 2017 (Monday).

We look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible to Edinburgh in the new year!

Best regards,
Harry Woodage
EUKC Tournament Secretary

Matches: 0900 - 1700 (Both Saturday and Sunday) 

Cost: The entry cost for each team will be £130.

Our tournament is usually oversubscribed so to prevent teams from dropping out at the last minute we ask that teams pay a NON-REFUNDABLE fee of £65 BEFORE MONDAY 4th DECEMBER 2017

Accommodation
There are a number of central hostels in Edinburgh that are pretty affordable. We suggest you stay in Old Town, where the main university is located. See http://www.hostelbookers.com/ to find and book accommodation.

For those of you who don’t mind sleeping rough, we will try our best to arrange for floor space in some of our club members’ flats on Friday and Saturday night.

Note: you have to bring your own sleeping bags and use the shower facilities at the sports centre.

Socials
On Friday 19th January 2018 there will be a Welcome Social. This gives teams a chance to meet the other teams, collect their Information Packs (very important) and maybe even have a little warm-up for Saturday’s social!

The BIG social is on Saturday 20th January 2018! Following tradition, we will host a Ceilidh (Scottish dancing with partner swapping, spinning and a live band). No experience is needed for the Ceilidh and it’s a great way to bond with other teams! The Ceilidh will no doubt be followed by a night out.

How to Register
To register a team, please fill out the Application Form (attached to the same email) and send it back to eukc-tournament@hotmail.com before MONDAY 20st NOVEMBER 2017. Please note that previously we have been oversubscribed. This means that a completed application form DOES NOT automatically confirm a place for your team. You’ll be notified by THURSDAY 30th of NOVEMBER 2017 at the latest.

To avoid oversubscription and to give more clubs a chance to compete we will only accept applications for one team per club.

Looking forward to hearing from you all!

Harry Woodage
EUKC Tournament Secretary
