They have changed the location for the National Championships in the UK again. I think Liverpool will take longer for me to travel to by train than Manchester which was the location for the past 2 years but it shouldn't be too much longer because some trains go directly to Liverpool while for other journeys I would need to change trains at Manchester. It should still be much quicker than Birmingham which was the original location of the UK National Championships before Manchester.
