Team Challenge provides a local, fun, team competition option for recreational players of all ages and genders. All events take place within a short time period with the event organiser in charge of deciding on the age group, team size and format on the day. The emphasis is on a fun, exciting competition experience.

This event will consist of teams of 4-8 players (Boys or Girls – organiser to confirm team size). The scoring format will be finalised on the day although it is likely to be Tie breaks. This is subject to the number of teams that attend on the day itself.
All players will need to arrive on time so that they can register and be present for the player briefing before we start play for the day. Payment of £6 for each player will also be taken at registration.
