For our league sessions please feel to just come along when you want to but for tournaments it would be
preferred if you could email or call us to book your place just so that we have an idea on numbers attending.
Please email Joanna if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are now affiliated with The Little Green Bookworm Café at Sutton Coldfield Library. Please support them by buying drinks, food and Pokemon booster packs there.
Our league sessions (not tournaments) will now be held at Sutton Coldfield Library (See directions below).
Beginners of all ages welcome, as well as experienced players. Don't be put off if you've not played the TCG before, we will able to show you how to play. For experienced players, why not come along and play test or trade?
July 20th Summer Cup fun format tournament, BBQ, followed by prerelease in the afternoon.
The format will be cards from Ultra Prism or more recent. Only Pokemon that can evolve will be allowed - so Squirtle or Wartortle are allowed but Blastoise is not.
Prism cards are not allowed.
Baby Pokémon, such as Cleffa or Happiny, that don't evolve in the TCG game at present but do in other circumstances, will be allowed.
Use these cards to build a 40card deck. Maximum for 2 of each card, except for basic energy.
We will play with 4 prize cards rather than the usual 6.
Most of the cards you need are widely available or cheap to buy. But we don't want people to have to buy cards for this event. We are therefore having a trading/deck building hour from 9am before the usual start of registration at 10am. Please bring spare cards to lend if you have them. But DON'T leave it till the morning to think of your deck ideas. And be aware that the card(s) you are hoping to borrow may not be available!
The Summer Cup Tournament will probably be completed after the BBQ lunch, and we will then hold a prerelease tournament later in the afternoon/early evening.
We also have some Pokemon themed games planned - suitable for all ages.
And a free raffle.
Cost £5 for Summer Cup entry with free Veggie or meat burger or sausage for players and anyone accompanying them (within reason!).
Cost for prerelease £20 - and maximum of 20 players for the prerelease. You will need to book and pay in advance for this please.
Please email to book your place for one or both events. email@example.com
.League Cup 10th August at Quaker Meeting House
Future league sessions at the library Aug 17th, Sept 28th
See the "How to Find Us" tab for more travel directions.
For tournaments the Quaker Meeting Hall is in Kenelm Road which is a private road that can be difficult to find. If you are driving or walking up hill on Manor Hill it is on the right just before the road crosses over the railway track. You then pass a Spiritualist Church and a bungalow before getting to the Quaker Meeting House. Parking available outside the Meeting House or further back on Kenelm Rd towards Manor Hill.
For League sessions Sutton Coldfield Library is in the Red Rose Centre which is on the edge of the main shopping area in Sutton Coldfield close to MacDonalds, the Nationwide Building Society and next to Wilkos. Use the town centre car parks .The one with the entrance off the town centre ring road past TGI Fridays, and behind Aldi, is the closest. Alternatively the multi-story Victoria Rd carpark (on the right after MacDonalds). It is also in easy walking distance of the other town centre car parks. It is also very convenient for the railway station and buses.
