Weekend Schedule: Mini-Tournament On 26 July 2009

About a month ago, Philipp suggested a mini-tournament at the weekend.

We had a mini knock-out tournament before the Champions League Final, after midnight on Thursday, 28 May 2009.

The other two mini-tournaments we’ve had were mini-leagues that arose impromptu on weekday nights when the numbers wanting to play rose substantially above 10, and a second pitch was available at the same venue.

We now have our routine Sunday evening sessions from 5 to 6 pm at Turf City.  I have two pitches from 5 to 6 pm this Sunday, 26 July 2009, so we can have up to 24 players – 4 teams of 6, playing in a mini-league format.

Sushil and Dilesh are so keen, they’ve already put their names down.  I assume Philipp is in as well.

If we don’t get more than 12, we’ll go ahead with a routine session.

As we’re having the mini-tournament on Sunday, we won’t have a routine session on Saturday.

          Thu 23 July 2009 at 5:15 pm

          Yeah, try having a dodgy knee and you will know the pain. Running is secondary.. Putting the ball at the back of the net is primary..

    • rajiv
      Thu 23 July 2009 at 4:25 pm

      Jamil has played before, but since I’m not using the rankings to decide line ups anymore, special requests can be entertained.

      Thu 23 July 2009 at 5:10 pm

      Hi Rajiv

      as long as the players are all new , why dont just have Yaseen in one team then . He plays better with new players 🙂

  17. Yaseen
    Thu 23 July 2009 at 5:13 pm

    • rajiv
      Thu 23 July 2009 at 10:18 pm

    • rajiv
      Fri 24 July 2009 at 12:21 pm

  22. rajiv
    Fri 24 July 2009 at 12:23 pm

    Sorry to hear that Philipp.

    We have 18 now, so 2 more to make 4 teams of 5 and 6 more to make 4 teams of 6. To those playing, invite a friend if you like.

    A few people have said they can’t make it because they will be watching Liverpool play at the National Stadium. If you’re watching it on TV, you can get home by 7 pm as our session finishes at 6 pm.
