How can I register?

Who is eligible to compete?
This is a Level 3 Development event for all Academic Years and is not open to the following:
Any player who has won any medal at the British Minors Championships in the last two years (October 2016 – October 2017) or who has won any medal at the British Pre-Cadet Championships or British Cadet Championships or British Junior Championships in the last two years (December 2016 – December 2017). EXCEPTION: any medallist who won less than two contests IS eligible.
As a part of a new registration process, coaches are now required to register themselves pre-event for the upcoming British Schools Championships and British Special Needs/Visually Impaired Championships.
Without registering yourself before the Championships on 17th/18th March 2018, you will not be able to coach matside during the event.
