On Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th June
Come and take part in our Summer Tournament 2017 at Pixmore Playing Fields
Every year on the first weekend in June, Letchworth Garden City Eagles host their successful Summer Tournament. Over the years this has doubled in size and is held over two days, with 170 teams attending from surrounding towns and counties, along with the recent appearance of continent based sides here on tour.
Such is the wide interest shown in our tournament that we now attract sides from Chelmsford to Coventry, from North London to Northampton and from Milton Keynes to… err….Milan. Invites go out to sides in the major leagues around this and neighbouring counties to ensure that the best quality tournament can be hosted with new faces rather than the same teams you play week in/week out in your local leagues.
We are also one of the few tournaments in the area to feature Under 6 sides in the tournament structure. We do not charge an entry fee to our tournament for U6’s.
On-site we have vendors supplying sweets, ice creams and smoothies, a multi-bbq setup to ensure you do not have to wait long for freshly cooked bacon, burgers and hotdogs, our ever reliable kitchen team supplying teas and coffees and other refreshments, and plenty of side entertainment areas to keep all amused. The action on the day is captured and printed by our on-site photographers so you get to have a keep sake of little Jimmy’s first tournament or big James’ last.
Our fully refereed matches cater for age groups from U6 to U14 (we would like older age groups as well, but they are just too big for the pitch layouts!). The competitive age groups are held in a classic tournament style of group games, followed by knockout rounds to the final. At the end of each session there are winners and runners up presentations for the competitive tournament, and participation medals for the younger non-competitive age groups.
For your convenience on the day, parking is provided on site for just £1 a car. It is these £1s that go towards the operating costs of grass roots clubs like ours and ensure that the pitches are kept up to scratch and the facilities operational. We have recently had approval to add an extension to our clubhouse with hospitality facilities which we are raising funds for currently. So don’t think of it as a parking charge, think of it as a kind, generous, loving donation!
We would like to share our tournament with as many people as possible so make sure you come down at some point over the weekend, whether you are entering a team, supporting a team or just fancy a decent burger come and see us on the 3rd & 4th June.
