The build up to the World Adventure Masters (WAGM) continues in readiness for the competition that tee’s off on Friday.

The second day of unofficial practice saw a number of players arriving at the course, along with the Finnish and Kosovan players who are now getting a strong understanding of the courses challenges.

First up saw the German contingent arrive, a strong team of five players (including a couple of players who have previously played on the BMGA tour). Sebastian Kube, Oleg Klassen and Thomas Giebenhain are all making their debuts in the UK.

The Great Britain team and individual players are starting to arrive at the course with the KMGC trio of Marc Chapman, Michael Smith and Sean Homer all out on the greens along with the midlands pairing of Richard Gottfried and Chris Harding. Keith Kellard, the Great Britain coach, was seen mapping the greens and checking out ball choices earlier. Local lad, John ‘Ted’ McIver, made an appearance later in the day and with more players arriving this evening, and a successful test of the mobile scoring units completed, tournament fever is starting to hot up (a full list of entrants can be found here).

The official WAGM ball is proving to be a popular choice on the new felt at Hastings - available for £15 each while stocks last – with Richard and Marc the latest players to snap up the bargain ball.

More updates to follow tomorrow as the first official practice day gets underway from 9am with all players keen to put down a marker as they play the course with 48 hours of practice remaining until the event tee’s off on Friday.
