Club Nationals Price Increase

We are looking forward to another great Club Nationals event and welcoming a strong number of teams.  

I would like to acknowledge there has been a slight increase in the entry cost for the Club Nationals (approximately $60 per participant). The cost of participating in our sport is an absolute priority and the decision for any increases is never taken lightly. 

WPA undertook a National Club Championships entry fee and tournament costing review. In order for us to keep delivering a high quality and consistent championships we did need to raise the cost of entry for each participant. WPA will always endeavour to deliver the highest quality events, whilst keeping costs to a minimum and it is an absolute priority of WPA to ensure our sport remains affordable for all participants. 

The team entry fee is necessary to reduce the number of teams pulling out late and the cost/risk to WPA and the event as a result. This upfront team entry fee also helps with cash-flow as event costs require a substantial amount of pre-payment of services.

Regards,

Matthew Turnbull

National Competitions Manager
