Hasbeens and Hopefuls Tournament

After a very successful inaugural tournament last year the Yeovil 7 a side Masters tournament is now a fixture in the Masters summer programme of not to be missed events.

It will be taking place from Friday 7th-Sunday 9th June 2024 on the Astro pitch at Yeovil Recreation Centre, Chilton Grove, Yeovil, Somerset BA21 4AW.

We plan to run a separate tournament for the Ladies and Mens Teams. It is open to any Ladies and Mens teams of players aged 60 years and older - so we welcome entries from 65,70,75 etc age groups or a team incorporating players from each of the age groups. We also welcome expressions of interest from individual players who would like to join a team of like minded players.

The entry fee is £100 a team.

Each team will have 6 matches scheduled over the weekend. Length of matches will be 20mins x 2

The matches will commence at lunchtime on Friday 7th June and run until early Sunday pm to allow travel time to and from Yeovil. Accommodation is available for booking close to the pitch and there is good transport connections by road, rail and plane to get here. It is also a good base from which to visit the Jurassic coast and other local points of interest.

Refreshments will be available all weekend at the Pavilion Cafe and there is also a community room for our sole use with complimentary tea, coffee and water.

There will be a Saturday evening social  with food for all participants and their partners at Yeovil Rugby Club for which there will be a charge of £20pp.

Trophies will be awarded to the Men and Ladies Teams of the Tournament as voted for by the Umpires and Team Captains and the emphasis will be on having fun taking part in sociable, competitive matches. All participants will receive a tournament pin.

Expressions of interest are requested by 31st December 2023 to secretary@yshc.co.uk and the deadline for entries and payment of tournament fee is by 30th April 2024.

Please do share this information with anyone you think may be interested in entering a team in this tournament.
