Welcome to the Yorkshire slice of the Poloverse! This is Sheffield again organising their famous & beloved Cliffhanger tournament. As suggested by a former participant, this is indeed ‘the best polo tourney south of Carlisle’! In case you’d like to join us this year, please fill in the form to register! (FORM: http://goo.gl/forms/TbSC7HhoNkMNOKp53)
Dates: 9th and 10th of July, 2016
Location: Shoreham Street, Sheffield
Event: Cliffhanger outdoor festival
Format: ABC Swiss rounds on the 1st day, 2 sets of double elims for the 2nd day
Registration fee: £10 per player - we'll give you PayPal & bank details for payment after you signed up to secure your spot!
To build on the previous years’ success, we are again aiming to provide a weekend of fun, inclusive, friendly polo for all scenes. To ensure games are as closely matched as possible, the format will be an ABC format over two days. On the first day, we'll play Swiss Rounds (should be at least 4 rounds, maybe 5). On the Sunday, we'll split the seeding from the Swiss rounds into two separate double-elims, with the aim of making for really close games right the way through the finals.
Teams: We'll aim to sort out ABC teams at least one week in advance of the tournament - as such, the deadline for registering as a player will be the 1st of July. We should be able to cater for up to 16 teams (with tight scheduling).
As part of the city wide Cliffhanger Outdoor Festival we're planning to demonstrate our lovely sport (and the encouraged consumption of sporting drinks) to the peoples of South Yorkshire. Note that the Festival has moved to the city centre, thus we’re organising our event at Shoreham Street (rather than Millhouses Park).
