Event Descriptions

Junior Leagues KS3 and KS4
Teams of four players in each age-group from junior and school clubs meet to compete twice yearly in friendly competition. After the second meet points scored by participating teams are totalled to establish the winners and runners-up.

Half Court Fun Tournaments
These very popular tournaments are held at Christmas and Easter providing an opportunity for players from KS2, KS3 and KS4 to participate in a fun event. On the day, the tournament is run in two rounds. In Round One upon completion of each game, players either receive a raffle ticket or fun size sweet. In Round Two players are regrouped according to results in Round One and play off to find a group winner who receives a prize. Each tournament concludes with a raffle using tickets received in Round One.

KS2 Meet and Compete
These sessions offer a mixture of coaching and activities. They enable younger players to meet up to improve their skills and performance. The emphasis is on fun player development!

Annual Charity Tournament
This event held every summer enables players to compete within their Key Stages for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals whilst raising money for good causes. It has grown in popularity with over 70 entries in 2018. £350 was raised for the special baby unit at Gloucester Royal!

Shared Training Session
Coaches, teachers and volunteers from schools, clubs and county are invited to participate in these CPD sessions. The sessions are practical, providing an opportunity for coaches and volunteers to share good practice and methodology whilst working with groups of junior players. The session is planned and introduced by the Community Coordinators.
