Hello Nick,


I got to say thank you for all your help with the trip. Everything was fairly smooth. We had to get Nathan’s return flight secured because it had not been done from BA. Also, the surnames of Michelle and Nixon were not added to the booking, so that slowed us down. Other than that, the trip was absolutely fantastic. The location of the hotel was perfect and the scheduling of games and time off was done very well. If you played at night then the mornings were free and vice versa. The weather was warm and of course we took full advantage of the beach and pool. There was also another team from Enfield (women’s team), so we had some home support during the week. My guys went 4-1 in pool play and made the finals. We lost the game and there was some real bias from one young referee, but the organisers sorted him out after the game. Also, the top seeded team played one less game than we did, therefore we had to play the semi-final and final game 3 hours apart. The team was banged up and tired but they played hard despite of a very biased ref. None the less, I am very proud of my guys effort and I’m more proud of the many compliments from all the patrons and coaches regarding how well behaved my guys were throughout the tournament. Great success!


I decided to celebrate my independence day (JULY 4) at the water park. Absolutely awesome. The food buffet was superb every day. Way more than we could of imagined for a tournament. I will be returning to this tournament again in the future. Thanks again for all your help. Much appreciated
