There is plenty of on street parking available on Hastings Avenue which will be available if you arrive before 9am, the last time we checked there was no charge. There are two pay and display car parks on Hastings Avenue. Beware that the parking bays in front of the beach courts are blue badge only.
Please come prepared for all eventualities as the tournament will go ahead in most weather conditions. In the event it becomes dangerous to play, the tournament director reserves the right to cancel the tournament. They will put your safety first
Registrations closes on 5th July at 23:00.
The North Sea is next to the courts, this is not drinking water! There is no tap on site, so we would recommend bringing your own supplies. There is a small cafe (with a bar) and a Toby Carvey within 150m of the event.
When you arrive on the day please report to the organisers tent.
Registration is at 9am sharp, team briefing is at 9.15am and matches will be scheduled to start at 9.30am. Late registrations will be at the tournament director's discretion. If you are going to be late, call the number at the bottom of this page.
The final normally starts around 5pm and the awards presentation take place straight after this.
This is an adult tournament, juniors can compete with parental/guardian consent which can be recorded via the registration page.
Clacton-on-Sea has accommodation to suit all needs, from chains to b&b's to airbnbs. Google is your friend.
There will be a first aider on site throughout the day but for anything above a minor injury it's recommended that you visit the local walk-in centre (less than 1 mile away) or A&E (Colchester).
The tournament is in England, not Spain, there are no showers on the sea front but there is a rather large bath 50m away... the North Sea.
There is currently no catering provided by the tournament but there is the Beach Side Cafe and the Toby Carvery 150m away that serve food throughout the day. We'd recommend that you bring food with you, there are plenty of rubbish bins located around the tournament to help dispose of any waste.
Both the Toby Carvey and the Beach Side Cafe have agreed for you to use their toilets.
We would like all members of a team to wear the same/very similar tops. We recommend Sports Way Management for all your kit needs.
Refunds are available for team/individual withdrawals up until the close of registration on 5th July 5pm. After this date it will become non-refundable.
Please be aware there will be individuals taking photographs and videoing the event. This may be by the event organiser, public, local council and local media, please be on your best behaviour. Any images taken may be used for PR of future events and displayed on this and other websites. Please let us know before the event if you do NOT wish for your photo to be taken.
Each court will have a black bin, as will the organisers tent and you will be given one upon registration... in other words there is no reason to make a mess or leave a mess. The beach has to be left the way it started in the morning. Please help with this by putting all of your rubbish in one of these bins.
