Dogs: The school has a strict policy and does not allow dogs/animals of any kind. Please do not bring them along.

Parking: If the grass / ground is bone dry, then you may park beside your tent. Please park sensibly, please be considerate to other campers and once parked you are not to move until the tournament has ended (or you have an emergency). If you require your car during the weekend, I suggest you park it in the main car park by the entrance (plenty of space).

 

Campervans and Motorhomes: Are permitted and parking rules apply as above. There is plenty of hard standing, should you wish to park away from the main camping areas. Please note, we cannot provide electrical hook up or water / direct drainage. Please be self sufficient.

Behaviour and noise levels: 2022 will be our first year at this new venue, which is surrounded by houses. Although we have pre-warned the neighbours, I would like to respect their privacy, so please keep all music and general noise to a bare minimum after 11pm Friday and 1am Sunday morning (after the disco).

Our TENS licence only allows us to play music until 1am (strict), that also includes campers music, so when the organiser(s) come around and ask you to turn your music right down or off, please do not disrespect their request, it is for good reason (we want to return!).

Aggressive behaviour towards other team members, tournament staff, referees, vendors, visitors and locals, etc will not be tolerated.

Please notify the tournament staff, should you have any issues and we will deal with the situation accordingly.

Please make our tournament fun.

Photography: You may take photos, but please bear in mind we have a Junior competition taking place on Saturday only. If you see anyone potentially taking unlawful photographs of minors, please contact the tournament staff immediately. We have a number of Safeguarding Officers who can deal with the incident.

We look forward to seeing you this weekend.
