The ISVT tournament Tilburg is one of Thistles premier events in the calendar.  It has become highly competitive with the countries often using this for final selection of national teams and therefore is a Selected Event.  Hugely enjoyable with a great social, Thistles have been regular attenders for many years and our (then) o68 team won the gold medal in 2019.

Date: Friday 26th to Sunday 28th April 2023.  It is advisable to arrive Thursday, however it is possible to leave on the Sunday late afternoon.

Venue:  Tilburg HC, Holland – seven astros.  This is about two hours from Schipol airport.

Thistles Teams: M60, M65 and M70.  There is also an M75 category if numbers allow.

Opposition:  Holland and Germany, possibly Belgium and Italy, Wales and Ireland.  England send a raft of teams: Archangels, Angels and our colleagues in LX.

This is a selected event and Thistles will send the best squads we can.  There will be no block booking of hotels this year and the choices from previous years are: The Auberge du Bonheur (expensive but walking distance to pitches), Mercure in Tilburg centre (bus and taxi) and the Ibis on the ring road (car or taxi).
