    A friend of mine from Germany has asked me for help finding contacts to get games/tournament in Vancouver for end of May 2009. They are a men's vets team, over 45 i think, but all have played (and continue to play) at a good standard. Does anyone have some contacts/suggestions I could pass along?

    many thanks

    Well the VIT is around the end of May time.....

    the link above should have some contact details for the organisers, not 100% sure there's a vets section but you could always play in the main draw and show the youngsters how its done! If not im sure the contacts on there will be able to advise you of suitable teams in BC you could organise matches against.

    I would have suggested the VIT as well, though has it not been cut to mixed social or men's competitive (ie: all the young guys)? As for club contacts, my first inclination would be Jokers, as they have a good number of mature players, and are always up for a pint after the match. :) Their club website is here.
