Event details:

This years Nationals will be held in Liverpool, at the Greenbank Sports Academy.

The Sports Hall is 44 x 34 x 8.4m which accommodates 2 basketball courts to International Wheelchair Basketball Federation standard. There is also seating for upto 500 spectators, and an onsite restaurant / bar. Also onsite is accommodation in a ground floor series of rooms. These will be offered first though to school teams.

The event cannot go ahead however, unless a minimum of 14 teams have entered. So if you were considering taking 16 players for one side, why not enter them separately instead. You won't get much pitch time with 15 minute games if you've got 16 players!

Format:
15 minute games, teams split into two seeded pools, based upon previous tournaments.

The Sunday will see the crossover of the two pools, with awards for plate (9th), Spirit, and 1st. Possible award for 2nd and 3rd too, depending upon amount of interest.
