About an Agility Match

An Agility Match is a small scale show, where the entry is limited to the members of the participating clubs – in this case Letchworth, BATS, Milton Keynes and Wellingborough.

As with Kennel Club shows, dogs must be registered with the Kennel Club, although we accept pet names on the entry forms. A dog that holds an Agility Certificate is not eligible for a Match.

There will be two rings: Agility and Jumping. Classes are organised by grade, there being several classes for which each dog is eligible.

Dogs are awarded points for each result in their class; the winning club is the one with the highest points tally.

Wellingborough are the current holders of the Inter Club shield.
