Thanks to all competitors, and those who helped to judge too. Smallish turnout, but fun was had.
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

I can't help but notice the men/women ratio. What is it that almost only nerdy guys (count me in) play Kendama in Europe? Looking at some top female players, I don't see why it attracts so few women ...

Pollyanna and Chloƫ also joined in on a couple of the early games, but didn't enter the main competition.

I've seen similar discussions in the juggling world about this, and the one thing I can say for certain is: If you start trying to explain it, you end up sounding like a right pillock!

Sorry, Cliff, we only just noticed your post. Yes, non-Brits are allowed to enter BKA competitions. You would be very welcome!
