SJC Bursary Fund

How to enter Sussex events – Book online

Browse our calendar below. When you are ready to book, click on the ‘Book Online’ button above to be taken to our online booking system where you can select the events you are interested in and pay by Paypal, credit card or debit card.

Entries will close at 6:00pm the day before the event to allow us time to prepare the event – for example ensuring we have sufficient and appropriate coaches on training days; and sufficient equipment and staffing for tournaments.

We politely ask that you do not turn up without prior registration as this causes delays inconveniencing other attendees.
