Kent & Medway Schools Tournament

Dear Sports Teachers and Korfball Managers

Just to remind you that the 12th Kent and Medway Schools Korfball Tornament will be held on Saturday 16th June at the Rainham Girls School 9.30am-5.30pm.

Entries need to be in by Monday 11th June which is the first Monday back after the school holiday,

There will be under 9, under 11 and hopefully under 16s sections, so I hope I have given you all enough time to start preparing your teams.

As usual there will be refreshments served all day, and I hope to have stalls selling posts, balls and sports kit which proved to be very popular last year.

I do hope you can make it and hopefully new schools will enter.

I will be sending out the usual tornament packs nearer the date.

If you need any more information please do not hesitate to contact me.  
Jackie Hubbard – Development Officer and Schools Co-ordinator
