Please note that we will endeavor to allow as many Team UK travel overseas as part of the team. We as an organisation operate with limited resources. Due to this, it is compulsory that parents accompany their children and take full responsibility for the travel arrangements and accompany their children for the entire duration of the tournament.
We are always thankful of any parents who are prepared to help out where required at both domestic and overseas tournaments.
