The three-day unaffiliated competition featured championship classes from intro to medium level, as well as warm-up and evening freestyle competitions, with a prize fund of about £1,000 per level, including winners’ rugs and top-quality prizes.

Combinations at each level took part in classes on the Saturday and Sunday, the combined scores from which will determined each championship winner. There were also extra warm-up classes run on all three days, with freestyles on Saturday evening.
