  • The most important thing is that the spirit of competition remains friendly.
  • Let me know if you'll participate in the next tournament by writing me by as soon as you can!
  • The groups should be closed and the captains should know the kids playing, we should all be sure that there are only Under 16.
  • New accounts should not participate, especially those created on the day of the tournament but also not those created in the week preceding the competitions.
