IMPORTANT COVID INFORMATION (updated 22/09/2021)
The 35th Brussels tournament of 30 & 31 October 2021 is confirmed to take place. However, at the time of writing the authorities in Brussels are looking to instate a rule that for any event taking place indoors with more than 50 participants, it is mandatory to be in possession of a valid Covid Safe Ticket. We will thus require possession of a Covid Safe Ticket for every participant of the Brussels Tournament.
