We have again been invited to play in the tournament in Ohlao in the Algarve, where we played last Autumn. I realise it may be difficult for some of us to return there after what happened, but please let me know if any of you would like to put your name down?
Title Olhao International Walking Football Tournament
Venue Olhao Municipal Facility, a new outdoor facility with an artificial surface, excellent changing rooms, spectator seating and café area.
Tournament Format – over 50, 3 touch walking football. Matches to be 2 halves of 10 mins with a 5 minute break. A League and Plate competition is envisaged.
Teams – 7 a side, 2 substitutions per match, squad size at the team’s discretion.
Cost – 60 Euros (£50) per team
There will be a presentation evening on the Friday, being a standard all inclusive Algarvean function. It is hoped that another social function could be organised on the Saturday, obviously being dependent on what is available on the day.
The Tournament is in conjunction with the local authority and tourist board who are at present negotiating cheap hotel rates. There has been interest shown for the event and we do envisage a friendly but very competitive tournament.
