Jacanana is a mixed tournament in Coffs Harbour, organised as a replacement for the former Jacaranda (Grafton) tournament previously held about this time.
Note: Times are to be confirmed! This tournament may clash with the Qld Masters tournament. We aim to field teams in both!
There are normally two mixed divisions, the top one suitable for Div 1 PVL or higher, and the second suitable for everyone else.
Mixed rules require that at least two females be on court at all times, and at least one touch in a three touch rally must be by a female.
Typically you would play 5-7 games over the weekend, depending on the draw.
The tournament itself is $50 per person. Accommodation costs organised by Dragons are expected to be around $60 per person per night (to be confirmed). Travel and food costs are extra.
Most people drive down Friday night (via car pool), play games Saturday and Sunday, and drive home Sunday afternoon/evening. Coffs is about 4.5 hours drive from Brisbane.
Most Dragons stay together in club-organised accommodation. We will attempt to help with special arrangements where requested, noting that if you ask us to arrange special accommodation that costs more, you are expected to pay for it, even if your plans have to change.
How to register
To commit to playing in this tournament, please register for this event and fill in the appropriate fields for accommodation, travel etc. You may hold off paying until teams and accommodation costs are finalised.
If you are bringing a non-playing partner or any (non-playing) children with you AND they require accommodation, please include them as your guests, so we can bill you appropriately.
Can under 18 members join a team?
While both divisions are open-aged, juniors can and do participate. Dragons generally expect that juniors participating in teams are supervised by a responsible adult (eg parent).
We usually try to give teams time to train together at Thursday night training, for the week or two prior to the tournament.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
