Maintains the BGA Tournament Calendar and provides support to tournament organisers. As there are less than 52 events in a year, there is an attempt to smooth out the calendar so some months are not too crowded with events. Certainly there should not normally be two events the same weekend, and especially not the same day. To choose a date for your tournament, look at the calendar to see what is available, taking note of the geographic spread of events in a particular month as well as the date. Then check with the coordinator that your date is suitable and it will be added to the calendar, provisionally until you confirm the date and provide more information.
If your date is accepted as a BGA event, then the tournament will be listed and you will able to borrow the BGA tournament equipment and even get assistance with running your event. In return you will be expected to pay the BGA Tournament Levy and provide the results of your event.
