Hey guys, great news, great work, tickets booked !

French euro qualifiers will be held in Toulouse in 9 days, it will be great to know how much slots each country will have before starting it. Like this the competition will be better and the ranking during our 2 days of tournament will have a real sense.

Also, it will be good to know if the wildcard is an open or if there is a number slots for each country (in that case, french euro qualifiers will decide too) , same arguments ;)

Cheers ++

Play polo for Call Me Daddy

I believe the answers to both those questions will be provided in the next day or so.

I hope Cosmic can grab a wild card spot...it's our only way in for this years Euros.

re: flyer


We've updated the description of the tournament. Slot distribution is official!!

Note: It's up there, thus it is not up for discussion.

birds on red..
it remind me ....

how many teams from wildcard will play the main tournament ?

Team Sophie - Switzerland

Hi! :) It's all written :) "Wildcard 9"
so ... 9 Teams from wildcard tournament will play in the main tournament :)

Pajac, The Beardless

Or more, if countries don't claim all their spots

wow so want to play in that swimming pool



Neil - Cross Hares, Manchester UK

The registration is now open!
Register at registration@ehbpc.org
Go onto http://www.ehbpc.org/2013/?page_id=2 for details!


All countries are asked to provide us their slot allocation, please send us an e-mail (registration@ehbpc.org) with list of teams which managed to win the spot ( list should contain also spot type ( main / wc ))

Thank you!! :) It will help us

Pajac, The Beardless

Did you already decided the format of the wildcard tournament, are we going to play on the 3 court for this part of the tournament? Thanks

During this weekend we will finally decide how to do it, but probably yes :)
( 3 courts will be ready for sure )

Pajac, The Beardless

What's about the ruleset ?

We are waiting for info from Florida about new NAH RuleSet ( Kruse ) and it will be the official EHBPC 2013 ruleset...

In case that new nah ruleset won't appear soon, we will need to decide between nah ruleset http://www.nahardcourt.com/ruleset-v3-3-for-the-2013-nah-season/ or WHBPC 2012 one

Pajac, The Beardless

Hi pajac,
I saw on the ehbpc website that you have places reserved at 10€ per days in some hostels but is it per person per day or per room or .... ?
thanks a lot for all this great job !!!!

~10EUR/night/person. It's a student dormitory, so it's super cheap a third of what you would pay in a regular hostel.

Accommodation inquires and reservation, talk to Maciej Nosal at maciej@ehbpc.org.

June 10th is the registration deadline ( for both main spots and the wildcard!) Only 7 days left from now!!

Pajac, The Beardless

wheeeeeeeee, qualified for the wildcard. Just checking flights now!

Gutted, neither of my team mates can make it now so we have to drop out. I am available to sub, good goalie, strong blocking game and nice smart shot :)

What will the format be for the wildcard tournament?

I might be up for coming, krakow, how good are the good times gonna be?! :)

@Hyper Allah
We don't know yet... We need to know 2 things:
1) How many main tournament slots will be to win ( some countries won't claim all their spots )
2) How many teams will participate in wildcard
Then we will design appropriate wildcard format :)

no teams from Switzerland?


No, which is a shame.

My team can't come since we know the dates and some other get troubles (injuries) or other dates issues... Some also don't take this shit seriously enough.
Anyway, that's a shame.

(Hopefully manu would be there...and tomas too, is a GVP player now, it makes 2)

Team Sophie has one brand new dad, and one who will be dad in a few days, that's why Sophie won't be in Krakow. But I'm looking forward to playing with TORNADOES. Bing

Team Sophie - Switzerland

Hi this is Louis from Yomoyo, in case anyone's able to come and is looking for a team, Yomoyo are a player short?

Just realised, I don't check here very often (well, ever) so can you either email my username at ymail dot com... I actually don't check mail as often as I read Lfgss.com, so if you pm khornight2 on there I'll get your message even faster.


Hey, my friend Zoli is also available to join an incomplete team. He is not quite a pro but has some good skills and tournament experience. We will be in Krakow tomorrow afternoon. Please let me know if you need a player. You can contact me at LOBP or e-mail ferkovacska at gmail dot com.

Hey, I can post now! I'm Zoli, and everything ferkov wrote is true. I need a team. My mail is glovag at yahoo dot com

p.s. why is everyone posting their emails like this?

Thanks for coming guys.

Hail to CMD, the returning champions.
