ISO Tournaments - 7, 8, 14, 15 November (On hold)

Information

November tournament has been put on hold for now due to Tier 2 restriction. We may organise as soon as London back to Tier 1, before that we will do credit or refund accordingly. Please bear with us as it would be easier for us to set a date early November to sort this out in one go. Many thanks!
