Running a University Open Tournament / Varsity Tournament

A few brave clubs take on the task of hosting and organising their own university open tournaments. This can be hugely rewarding experience for the local club organising committee but is a big undertaking with financial and reputational risks to your club.

The BSTF are here to help and are able to provide event insurance, equipment and lots of advice to help make your event a success, including:

  • Bespoke tournament insurance – essential cover for events open events i.e., open to students beyond those within your own club or third party association
  • Several thousand pound worth of tournament equipment including electronic score systems, TVs and stands, laptops, draw software, card printers, banners, BSTF merchandise, and more
  • Sourcing of experienced officials
  • Sourcing of competition mats
  • Sourcing of PSS
  • Evaluation of your risk assessment
  • Promotion of the event across our networks

If your club committee is interested in hosting a university open tournament please contact us today.
