Dear Club Manager/Secretary

Subject: The London Baseball Tournament

14th and 15th July 2012

(Including the “Frank Brady” Trophy)

Venue: Croydon Pirates Baseball Ground, Roundshaw playing fields

Hannibal Way, Croydon - Post code: CR0 4RW

You are invited to the above event, which is a senior 2-day baseball tournament

Please submit this entry form before the closing date of the 30th June to be included!

This will be as usual the highly popular London Tournament hosted by the Croydon Pirates and we would like to take this opportunity to invite your team to participate.

The first day will determine the qualifying teams, for the main play-offs and the Frank Brady competition on the second day. Our governing body the BBF, plan to help make this a truly great weekend and will be supporting the tournament wherever possible.

More information containing the schedules, Tournament rules etc will be sent to you, or will be available on our club website, as soon as the final entries and structure has been finalized.

It is guaranteed that each team will play at least four games over the 2 days.

The tournament entry fee is £150 per team, which will include the 2nd day’s game balls.

No charge for camping or car parking will be in force again this year, as this has been incorporated in the entry fee and will be good news to teams, all we ask is that where possible our food and drinks outlets are supported by all participating teams, so as to help cover our running costs

Please note: Teams drawn as the home team will need to provide game balls for the 1st day’s games and teams may also be asked to supply an umpire possibly when not playing, for other games on both days.

Once more there will be several official ABUA umpires in attendance over the weekend, as they will be using the games to run a clinic.

If you require local accommodation on the Friday or Saturday evening, we can supply details of local hotels/hostels, or you can camp at the ground, free of charge

Food and drink (including beer!) can be purchased throughout the weekend of the tournament.

Please complete and return the enclosed application form with your cheque, made payable to:
