Our 2019 Tournament - Sunday 19 May
2019 TOURNAMENT - ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL DAY.
We had a very successful day on Sunday 19th May and were blessed with good weather. 131 teams attended and comprised over 1000 players paricipating in almost 400 matches, most of which were completed near to the scheduled time thanks to the efforts of referees and coaches.
All 250+ children participating in the Under 7 and Under 8 age groups took home a memento from the day - we look forward to seeing you again next year and for the next few years.
Once again we ran both Cup and Plate competitions for the Under 9 to Under 13 age groups giving lots of players the chance to be 'winners'.

Under 9: Cup, Winners - Langton Dynamos, Runners Up - TW Youth Spitfires; Plate, Winners - Wadhurst Eagles, Runners Up - TW Youth Hurricanes
Under 10: Cup, Winners - Pembury Panthers, Runners Up - Pembury City; Plate, Winners - Wadhurst Wolverines, Runners Up - Langton Stingrays

Just a quick note from TJ U9's Storm and Lightning teams. Despite both teams get knocked out in the first round of the knockout stages we all had a fantastic day in wonderful surroundings at a well run tournament. Could you please pass on our thanks to all those who helped organise and if invited we will certainly be back next year. Many thanks
Tonbridge Jnrs Under 9
Just wanted to say that I thought it was a great tournament again, really well run and balanced teams throughout.
Sevenoaks Under 10
Thank you for another well run and organised tournament. Although my team went out on penalties, they enjoyed the day and we will certainly return next year.
Enjoy your summer break,
Paddock Wood Rapids Under 10
Thanks for another great tournament George. We entered five years in a row... sad to think our boys will be too old next year...
Chipstead Falcon Under 13
Thank you for organising such a great tournament. The boys loved it. All the best
T Wells Yth Under 13
For the second year in a row you guys have nailed it. Excellent day - very well organised from the parking thru to the refs and general organisation. Most impressive is the fact there are no huge gaps between matches which can get frustrating at other fiestas.Thanks and hope to be there again next year.
Langton Hawks Under 12
