Following successful tournaments in Barcelona, Valencia became the second Spanish destination in the calendar.

The tournament saw us welcome back many friendly faces in the form of CSF, Prisoners and 9 Nana Budds (from the Yorvik Blades stable).

The CSF are far from strangers to competition making an impressive 7th appearance. This 7th appearance also means the CSF will have competed in all the destinations we currently offer. We are therefore sending our scouts far and wide for new challenges in new destination not only for the CSF but for all our valued clients.

On the field, the CSF have enjoyed a fair bit of success. This year alone they have claimed the Algarve Open and Amsterdam Five Plate titles. Add this to a 2008 Krakow Trophy Plate victory and Plate Runners-Up in the 2007 Prague Trophy and you can see that the CSF boast considerable experience. What price another Plate victory in Valencia?

Prisoners are no strangers to Plate success themselves as they lifted the 2008 Prague Masters Plate trophy in a penalty shoot-out against Irish team The Shooting Shamrocks. The final was one of our best ever and was an epic struggle with the penalty shoot-out eventually being won 6-5. In the 2008 Barca Fives pre-tournament drinking hindered their chances and they crashed out in the Plate semi-finals.

Jack Kennedy, formerly of the Yorvik Blades, brought his 9 Nana Budds team to the Valencia party. In the 2008 Barca Fives, as part of the Yorvik Blades squad, he was responsible for handing out a 3-0 defeat to the CSF. Will a repeat be on the cards if they are drawn together this year?

Local teams Shabbier, Legends, Calpe Crocks and Art Hosteleria made their debuts and were determined to win on home soil.

The 2009 Valencia Fives also saw an exciting new format for the event. The morning playoff phase was to be decided upon two groups with 4 teams in each group.

The teams finishing 1st and 2nd in each group will progress to the Cup Group.

The teams finishing 3rd and 4th in each group will progress to the Plate Group.

The winners of each of these groups would be crowned Cup and Plate champions and surely deserve their victories!
