Your deposit of £50.00 is required to be paid on the first tour date (Saturday 26th March, 2016); this will secure your entry into the tour, however players MAY be permitted to pay £20.00 per event as long as this is agreed with the tour organisers in advance. Please note all Ladies tour events will commence at 11.00am sharp and you are expected to be in attendance when your match is called. It should also be noted that all draws are computerised and carried out on the day.

Bank details for direct payment are detailed below, please note if you chose to pay by this method that you ensure you reference the payment with your full name and at least a week in advance of each tour. This will allow me to go to the bank and withdraw relevant monies.

Please also find enclosed a copy of undernoted policies and would ask that you read them, familiarise yourself and ensure you understand the content.

FOR YOUR INFORMATION: It is hoped we will be using Pro-Cup balls in the tour this year (obviously if we can get enough sets) which will bring us in line with the recent announcement made by the EBA in regards future events.

I look forward to receiving your entry but should any queries arise, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the international selection committee.

Yours in Sport,
