A much overdue FOCAL update

Apologies for the long silence! Can’t get the staff, etc.

RECENT TOURNAMENT: Countdown in London, held last Saturday (6th May), shattered our attendance record by getting 68 people along, including 22 new players! A report will be posted in due course, complete with fabulous photos, enthused quotes and rude conundrum scrambles from the day.

FORTHCOMING TOURNAMENTS: Sign up for one of our next three tournaments now:
Saturday 27th May – COUNTDOWN IN KING’S LYNN
Saturday 17th June – COUNTDOWN IN WATERFORD (Ireland)


RECENTLY ANNOUNCED TOURNAMENTS: In addition to the tournaments already announced previously, we can confirm that COUNTDOWN IN DUBLIN, our original Irish event, returns for its third outing on Saturday 21st October, COUNTDOWN IN HUDDERSFIELD will be back on Saturday 7th October, and COUNTDOWN IN BIRMINGHAM – our end-of-big year bonanza incorporating both the FOCAL Finals and an open tournament – has been booked at the same venue for Saturday 2nd December.

CANCELLATIONS: Unfortunately for our Midlands brethren, Countdown in Nottingham 2017 has been cancelled. However, if you’re in the area and still want to attend an event, there’s always Countdown in Lincoln weekend in January 2018… subscribe to our blog to find out when it’s been announced!

Any questions? Comment below… and hopefully see you in Norfolk on 27th May!

    Need another London date, because I’m fired up to join in, and increase the male/female ratio!

      Hi Josephine! CO:LON should be returning next year (provisionally the same weekend, so 5th May 2018, but this is liable to change – keep an eye out for our updates!). There’s always Countdown in Milton Keynes as a nearby alternative, which is on Saturday 12th August. Would be great to see you there 🙂
