There are two primary reasons behind this decision, which we believe are crucial for the Success and convenience Of our participants:

Brexit Visa problems
We understand that several countries participants have been facing difficulties in Obtaining Visas due to the complex post-Brexit regulations. To ensure that all athletes, coaches, and Officials can participate Without hindrance, we have chosen Ireland as the new Venue, where Visa procedures are expected to be more Streamlined.

Clash With World Trampoline Championships
Coincidentally, the World Trampoline Championships are also scheduled for the same weekend in November in Birmingham, UK. This has presented Challenges in terms of Venue availability and accommodation, as both events attract a large number Of participants and spectators.
