Dear Team Managers,
I hope you are all well.
Some of you may already be aware of our upcoming events for KKFE, but a little update for those who are not. We have two major events coming up very soon - our 4th National Championship and our very 1st International Championship taking place on home ground.
We are currently in the midst of planning our 4th National Championship due to take place on Sunday 12th August 2018 at Hanwell Football Club in Perivale. We are hoping for as much support as possible for this event.
A little bit about the National Championship:
Within the vicinity, a car park is available with free parking (limited). To support the environment and help members of the Khommunity, we would recommend car sharing.
Tasty food will be available on the day to purchase from our catering team.
Small-medium size gazebos/ shelter are allowed. Stay protected from the heat/sun as we bring this championship to the great outdoors.
Understandably it is not always possible, however, if the team players could have numbered T-Shirts (from 1 - 12) it would be great, otherwise as previously done we will supply numbered stickers to be stuck on the back of the T-Shirts.

International Championship :
As well as preparing for the nationals, we are also planning for the International Championship taking place between 1st - 3rd September.
We are very excited to announce that a male and female team from India will be visiting the UK and playing against the male and female England team.
The 1st test match will take place on Saturday 1st September
2nd test match to take place on Sunday 2nd September and
3rd test match on Monday 3rd September - venues are still to be confirmed.
Therefore, training for England's female and male team will be commencing very soon.
The International Championship will also give more opportunity for players to be selected to play internationally.
I'm sure most of you can appreciate the cost implications when holding such major events. With KKFE being a charity organisation, we are looking for any kind of sponsorship or donation no matter how small to help fund Kho Kho activity. Whatever help you can provide, will be greatly appreciated.
I look forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions regarding the events please feel free to get in touch.
