Saturday 21st November 2015
This year’s Junior World Tambourelli Championships will be held outside Scotland – the birthplace of Tambourelli – for the first time in the history of the competition. The event will be hosted by South LOndon Tambourelli (SLOT) at an indoor venue in South London and will take place over the course of a single day on Saturday the 21st of November. We hope that the competition will feature players from most of the areas where the game has spread and is regularly played.
The championships are open to all participants including experienced players or those who have never played the game before. Players will be entered into one of three age classes for singles (9s and under, 10-12s, 13-15s) and a mixed doubles competition. In the two older age classes there will be separate boys and girls competitions. Doubles pairings will be drawn from a hat with the oldest and youngest participants being paired together to ensure level competition. The draw will be arranged with a group stage qualification so that every participant gets to play a number of games. This will be followed by a knock out round leading to the finals.
All games will be played on standard courts of 9.5 x 4.5m with a net of 1.75m.
The tournament will take place between the hours of 9:00am to 6:00pm. Please make sure you arrive on time on the day and make plans to be there throughout the duration of the day. This will help with the smooth running of the event.
The event will be held at the Flaxman Sports Centre, Carew Street, Camberwell, SE5 9DF. The venue has four courts in a single sports hall and an adjacent room for tournament organisation and refreshments. The Sports Centre has changing rooms and showering facilities.
There are good public transport links close to the venue. It is a 20 minute walk from Brixton Underground station or 5 minutes from Loughborough Junction railway station. There are also various bus routes leading from Central London.
