The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead will be sending a team to play in a Twin Towns Local Government Officers Football tournament on the weekend of Friday 20 – Sunday 22 September 2019 in Kortrijk, Belgium.
Teams taking part will be from Bad Godesberg (Germany), Frascati (Italy), Kortrijk (Belgium – two teams), Saint Cloud (France) and Windsor & Maidenhead. The tournament is held every other year.
We are a couple of players short so if you are interested in playing in this tournament please contact Andrew Scott – firstname.lastname@example.org – mobile – 07887565589 TODAY
The cost is about £170 – which covers the travel to Kortrijk, accommodation and most meals. Tournament rules below.
We will be travelling by minibus (Kortrijk is approx. 1 ½ hours from Calais) on Friday 20th September. We are booked on the The Euro Tunnel, departing Folkestone at 9.50am (arriving in Calais at 11.25 am) with the departure from Calais on Sunday 22 September at 4.50pm (arriving Folkestone at 4.25pm). Therefore we will be leaving Maidenhead at about 6.30am on Friday (tomorrow) and returning to Maidenhead at about 7.00pm on the Sunday. However, we will try and get on an earlier train on the Sunday if possible.
