The Basel Dragons Indoor Championship takes place on Saturday 31st March & Sunday 1st April 2102 at Pfaffenholz Sportzentrum (Rue St.
Exupéry 5,F-68300 St. Louis, Tel. 0033 389 89 82 30)
There is an on site restaurant, so everyone needs to either purchase food on site or bring a packed lunch.
An ambitious programme involving 4 age groups (U15 & U11 on Saturday followed by U13 & U9 on Sunday) means that, with the exception of Luxembourg, teams can avoid the requirement of overnight accommodation. This means there is no official event planned for the Saturday evening. However, anyone wishing to spend the night in Basel should contact the organisers for some options at varying price levels.
One of the aims of the tournament is that as many children as possible get the chance to play and we will try to ensure that teams can be made up if you are short. In this respect, and if you have any questions regarding each age group, please contact the following:-
Teams must have an umpire and a scorer available for each game they play.
Teams will be contacted If there are any further developments. Meanwhile, contact Chris Clayton if you have any questions.
