How to enter

Head on over here.

Make sure you're on the mailing list to keep up to date with entry details.

Individual players looking to join a team should post a message on the forum offering their services. Also consider sending a message to the mailing list (see below). You can usually find a team to play for.

If you're coming to London later in the season, you're very welcome to join a team mid-league. However be warned that many teams may already be full and therefore not taking on extra players. Ask and see who bites.


These are not pickup games

If you're a player looking to play in the league, you're welcome to approach a team and try to get a game. However, once you have played a league game with a team, you are tied to that team for the rest of the league.

A team that allows another team's player to pick up with them without the opposition's consent risks forfeiting the game. This is primarily to discourage experienced players from picking up with different teams each week, and hence distorting results.


Mailing List
