4 top teams from Lisbon plus our own Knights are fighting it out in a round robin series of 32 matches, culminating on Finals day on 3 August, for the trophy and the inevitable status that goes with it.

The jousting starts at 1900 on Thursday evening with Knights first in the lists against the mighty Malo CC, who have won every tournament in the last 2 years, followed by a re-match at 21.30. The days continue in similar vein throughout the week and weekends and a full programme of games can be found on the ECN Network on You Tube or on the Knights social media pages.

The warm summer evenings look long and exciting so the Clubhouse Bar will be open an hour before the teams take to the field, offering light refreshments, alcoholic and other beverages to avoid meltdown... how can you resist such splendid summer entertainment.
