The 2023 Under 14 National Clubs Finals, in association with the British Army, will take place at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 May.
After qualifying through their respective regional competitions, the top 18 teams will battle it out to lift the trophy.
There’ll also be a second prize up for grabs with an inaugural U14 National Club Final MVP Award set to be handed out to the standout player of the weekend.
Four of the top five teams from the 2022 competition return with their sights firmly set on being crowned champions.
Last year’s U14 final was a tightly fought game with both Kingsway Power and Turnford leaving their all on court.
With extra time required to determine the winners, it was Kingsway Power who edged out their opponents 23-24.
The North West side will want to lift the trophy for a second consecutive year, while Turnford will certainly be out to go one better this time around.
Oldham, who came third in 2022, and Eagles, who finished fifth, are also back for another shot at the title.

For parts two and three of the competition, teams will be regrouped according to their placing within their respective group after mini round-robins against all other teams.
The final stage sees matches played out to decide the final standings, including semi-finals and a final.
