The tournament will be for players over the age of 40 years and the registration closes on the 30th of this month.  
 
"This year's tournament is open to all players born before 1st January 1983, which means any player who is born in the year 1982 and before are eligible. No rookie players shall be allowed."
 
"There has been huge interest from local and overseas teams but we will only allow 16 teams."
