Running a Varsity Tournament

A few brave clubs take on the task of hosting and organising their own intervarsity tournament. This can be hugely rewarding experience for the local club organising committee but is a big undertaking, with legal responsibilities for the heath and safety of participants, as well as financial 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:

  • An online meeting to highlight the great benefits of running a varsity event, but also raise the risks and liability issues when hosting even a smaller competition
  • Bespoke tournament insurance: essential cover for your event can be provided under the BSTF’s policy by agreement
  • Hire of thousands pound worth of tournament equipment including electronic score systems, TVs and stands, laptops, draw software, card printers, banners and more
  • Help with sourcing experienced officials
  • Evaluation of your risk assessment
  • Use of our online entry management system capable of accepting online payments
