The Kewford Eagles Annual tournament is the favourite time of the year for us when we get the opportunity to get so many boys and girls out playing in our tournament as we look to have a fun day out for all and memories to last a lifetime.
Unfortunately last year we had to make a decision to cancel the event due to a global pandemic and no vaccine in sight. Today we have vaccines for adults but we also have guidelines in place to reduce the risk of any further spread, in particular amongst children. We have been working very hard as a club to open up again in the correct and safe environment for the hundreds of kids who play here on a regular basis.
For this year's tournament we have a record 234 teams registered for the tournament. This is great that we can cater for so many teams but it has also added more pressure on the club to create a safe covid free environment for the kids. We estimate that over 5,000 people will be passing through Eagle Park this weekend. We have also worked closely with South Staffs on understanding what requirements we need to support these volumes. We have also been monitoring the increasing Covid cases with some of our own players and committee members currently having to isolate lately. And finally we, as a committee, have spent two hours weighing up the pros and cons of proceeding with the tournament this weekend.
The kids are at the heart of this club, and it is for this reason that we have had to make the very difficult choice to cancel this year's tournament so that the kids remain safe. We fully appreciate that a lot of people will be disappointed by this decision but we would require so many more volunteers to make this event happen and more coordination too from a Covid testing perspective. We did review alternative dates but these weren't feasible.
