Burnley Tornados’ home tournament is held at the Prairie tomorrow from 12-30 p.m., with free entry for all.
The Tornados won the Northern Conference and the North West Championship last year, and finished third in the national finals.
Their title defence starts with games against Woodham Warriors, Shropshire Revolution, and Lancashire rivals Standish Raiders.
The Tornados have spent the close season rebuilding, and the new squad will aim to match the remarkable feats of last season, with some new players from as far away as Skipton and Blackburn.
