Due to all but one club team event falling victim to COVID last year, all entry fees that were paid in 2020 have been carried forward to 2021. To help clubs remember what they entered last year they can see  a list of entries per club HERE.


Those Clubs who's entries have been carried over are asked to send an email to to confirm that they would like to enter the same events again or notify me of any changes to the entries shown. This should be done asap or at the latest before the 12th April when the Clark Cup draw will be made.


Any clubs shown on the list that either hadn’t yet entered any events before they were cancelled last year or were yet to pay can use the ENTRY FORM to submit and pay for any entries they would like to make this year.


A list of those clubs entered into each competition will be circulated ahead of each draw being made, to give any clubs that wishes to withdraw, the opportunity to do so before the draw is made and published.
