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.
23rd – 24th September
If you are going to Suffolk Five Rivers and are able to help on a ring, could you let Sandra email@example.com know. Suffolk Five Rivers club provide a ring party at our show and could do with some reciprocal help at their show.
If you are camping at our show, could you please add your details to the list at the club. Camping is free to helping Letchworth members.
1st, 2nd and 3rd September 2017
Our club show is fast approaching and we will be looking for as much help from club members as possible. The show can’t run without you. If you would like to get involved before or during the show, please contact Sandra.

Not For Competition Dogs
If you would like to come and help at the show and want to bring a dog with you who is not competing, you will need to enter your dog “Not For Competition”. Dogs must be at least 4 calendar months of age and must be registered with the Kennel Club: either on the Breed Register or the Activity Register.
- Print out a Letchworth entry form (below).
- Fill in your details as owner and the dog’s KC name, KC number, breed, date of birth and “NFC” in the Classes box.
- Provided you have sent off the form to register your dog on the Activity Register, you can still enter your dog in the show by putting NAF (name applied for) after your dog’s name.
- Sign the form and hand it in at the Secretary’s marquee at the show or to Sandra beforehand.
To register your dog on the Activity Register (for crossbreeds and pedigree dogs not on the Breed Register):
- Print out and complete Form 5 – Registration of a dog on the Activity Register
- The registration fee is £15

2017 Entry Form
If you are camping at the Wellingborough Show, could you email Sandra so that Wellingborough can reserve the pitches in a group.
Thank you to those who helped on the ring at BATS on Sunday. Providing a ring party at a show is important because the arrangement is reciprocal: other clubs provide ring party at our show. If you’ve never been to a show before and want to help, other experienced members will show you what to do.
Ring Party for Wellingborough
1st – 2nd July
We are providing a ring party for Wellingborough. Please put “Letchworth DTC” in the box in the helping section of the entry form.
