Event description

Description

Come one, come all, to play, to watch or to join in the fun at the UK Wallball Open 2018.

Players (even beginners) welcome! Spectators welcome! Investors welcome! Curious guys and gals - very welcome!

This year's event promises to be bigger than ever and is so much more than just a tournament. Full details of our extended programme can be seen here: www.ukwallball.co.uk/ukopen

Our event this year is a launchpad for a full year's worth of programmes. We're dedicating this event to the survivors of the Grenfell Tower tragedy and hope that our school, community and arts wallball programmes can help to provide free, fun, accessible and inclusive activity to everyone, whilst reinforcing the strong community bond.

Spectators & Curious Folks

You are very welcome! Spectating is FREE and any official will be more than happy to tell you about wallball, get you giving it a go on our practice court or talk to you about the game around the world. Please let us know you're coming so we can plan for you. The grand finale of both days is from 5pm, when you can watch the finals and see some local arts. This is highly recommended.

We're raising money for our community & school projects over the year in dedication to the Grenfell Tower community, and if you'd like to donate to this cause to help us achieve our goals we'd be extremely grateful indeed.

Want to Play? Of course you can - even if you're a beginner!

Membership:
Membership has been introduced to the European Wallball Tour to help cover the administrative costs of running events across Europe and to help expand the tour into new countries. The tournaments are organised by volunteers who dedicate a lot of their spare time hosting these events and membership money will go towards admin costs including website hosting and insurance for the tour.

Membership is £18 / €20 for a year, or £180 / €200 for lifetime membership. Membership can be bought at any European Tour event and will give you money off each tournament’s entrance fees, a European Tour t-shirt and regular newsletters.

Lunch:
Lunch is included in the entrance fees

Players Dinner:
A player’s dinner is to be held on the evening Saturday 17th February at the Garden Bar pub and restaurant, next to Latimer Road underground station (5 minutes’ walk from the sports centre)
Cost is £22 for 3 courses - please pay for the meal online when you register for the tournament. Spectators also welcome to the dinner and menu options will be circulated 2 weeks before the tournament.

Accommodation:
There are no large hotels in the immediate area of the sports centre but we recommend either staying in Shepherd’s Bush where there are Ibis (http://www.ibis.com/gb/hotel-7813-ibis-london-shepherds-bush-hammersmith/index.shtml) and Dorsett hotels (http://dorsetthotels.com/unitedkingdom/london/shepherdsbush/), or stay in Paddington/Baker Street where there are a number of hotels, including a Travelodge (https://www.travelodge.co.uk/hotels/312/London-Central-Marylebone-hotel)
Both of these options would be 20 minutes from the sports centre by bus/underground tube.
In addition there are a number of alternative hotels for all budgets, plus guesthouses and Airbnb options.
The sports centre could be accessed from anywhere in Central/west London in ~35 minutes – if you want to run an accommodation choice by us to see if the location is suitable, please give us a message.

Travel:
UK Wallball will not be providing transport to the sports centre due to its easy location next to Latimer Road underground station. From Shepherd’s Bush the sports centre is a 20 minute walk or a short bus ride. From Baker Street/Paddington/Kings Cross the sports centre will be ~20/25 minutes by underground tube.

For overseas players:
We can help give guidance on transport from airports/Eurostar. If you need help with transport then please contact us.
