With the recent lifting of restrictions on sport in BC, BCU is considering hosting a tournament on July 10-11 at Newton Athletic Park in Surrey BC. This date is only possible due to field bookings we already have with Surrey, finding alternative dates/venues for the summer of 2021 is likely impossible.
The event would only be for BC Mixed teams. As we return to play, the event will be planned to focus on giving everyone an opportunity to play the sport we have all been missing. This event will only be possible if BC moves to Step 3 in the current Restart Plan, which is scheduled to happen on July 1st.
Schedule will be planned with registered teams to allow for a reasonable return to play load management. Cost will be kept to a minimum, as will non-playing aspects of the event. Due to health issues there will be no field food at the event and no social event will be planned.
The first step will be to gauge interest in such an event. If you are involved with a team who may be interested, or want to create a team to participate in this event, you can contact the BCU General Manager.
Help spread the word by passing this information to others who you think may be interested. We would be happy to see Women’s and Men’s teams combine to form Mixed teams for this event.
If we have enough interest, we will plan for registration after BC moves into Step 3 on or about July 1, 2021.
