Events & Diary

We have many club tournaments and events (details can be seen on our Diary page and are mostly open to members of SECF clubs) in our region. In addition to our own leagues we have a very active competitive programme of tournaments which can be seen below.

Entries to these should be sent to our Secretary on the Registration form at the beginning of the year. Any subsequent changes or additions should be sent directly to the Manager.

Reports of winners and previous tournaments can be seen via our History page.
