As almost every team across the UK has a player within the preliminary squads we are working to support both the growth of the game across the nation and the ability for us to send the best performance teams possible to compete against the rest of the world.

This will be an 18-a-side competition so for the leagues outside of London please consider working with other clubs from your leagues to form a representative side or a national side for Wales and Scotland
