Tournaments in the U.K.

The British Stratego Association hope to promote the game within the U.K. by helping players with information and support surrounding the game. For this reason we set up this website.

One of the other ways we are helping to promote this game, is by trying to maintain regular tournaments within the U.K.

Hopefully these regular tournaments will encourage more and more British players to compete at the highest level. Only by competing at the highest level, can the standard of "Stratego" within Britain improve.

We have already seen a massive improvement in the standard of our "Stratego" over the last 2 years. Britain had Never won a single Stratego tournament until 2005. (1 month after the B.S.A. was formed)

Over the last 18 months since the B.S.A. was formed, we collected our First Ever tournament win (in 2005) Anthony Melbourne winning the Stratego Olympiad.

 In 2006 we followed up this success with our players winning a Junior European Championship and a World Championship. In the space of 18 months, the B.S.A. has helped British Stratego reach "new heights".

An Olympic Champion, a Junior European Champion and a World Champion (all won by different U.K. players) in 18 short months.

British Stratego is Alive and Kicking!

In 2007 British Stratego set even higher standards by adding to our list of achievements. In 2007 Great Britain became World Team Champions and Richard Ratcliffe took his second successive World Championship gold for Britain, holding onto the World Championship he won in 2006.
