The Owers Trophy
Sunday September 15th 2019
St. Paul’s School, Barnes
The Owers Trophy returns under new management this year – and at an earlier-than-usual date – but after the great success of the three-person format that has been used over the last few years, organisers Alex Smith and Ben Hale are continuing with that system this year and hoping to get even more teams involved.
Teams only need three players and they can form a squad from the same Prep School as well as Senior School; they can also have one current pupil playing; and, finally, with many ladies playing now, a team can combine genders, too.
The members of the squad may change between matches, but not during a match, and players can only represent one team during the course of the tournament.
Full details of the competition are available on the official entry form, which you can download from the link at the bottom of this story. As you will see, the closing date for entries is Wednesday 11th September, and final details of the draw will be circulated – rather ominously for those hoping to challenge the defending champions, the Old Paulines (above) – on Friday 13th September.
