The Blackhawk Bowl Flag Tournament takes place this Sunday at Bedford International Athletics Stadium, sponsored by Bul-1 Civil Engineering.
The tournament is the Blackhawks’ first taste of competitive action and sees them up against three other teams who are confirmed as attending:
– Aylesbury Vale Spartans
– Northants Phantoms
– Northants Titans
Flag football is the fastest growing format of the game in Great Britain encompassing schools, colleges, universities and community football.
Flag is non-contact version of American Football where tackles are made by pulling a flag off an opposing player. The game retains the same principles as the contact form but in a 5v5 non-contact arena, and is a tremendous way to increase passing and catching fundamentals.
The first game is scheduled to kick-off at 9.30am, the tournament will run until around 2pm and there is free admission for all.
A trophy and medals will be up for grabs for the winning team, and a trophy will also be presented to the runners up.
JennaLou Photography will also be in attendance on the day.
