National Championship allocations announced

The ESMBA has released the allocations for National Championship places and Norfolk has the third highest number of entries in the country. As in recent years Norfolk has been allocated the maximum four entries in the Singles, Pairs, Triples & Fours Championships. In the National Mixed Fours Norfolk has received two entries but just one in the National Under 18’s. In the new National Over 55’s Pairs Norfolk has received an allocation of two places. This gives Norfolk a total of 21 places across the board in the seven National Championships. The only counties with more entries are Essex & Devon who have been allocated a total number of 22 each. Suffolk have received 12 places, two each in the singles, pairs, triples, fours & mixed fours and one each in the Under 18’s and Over 55’s pairs. Cambridgeshire have received 10 places comprising of two each in the singles, pairs, triples & fours and one each in the Mixed Fours and the Over 55’s pairs. Norfolk qualifiers are reminded that under ESMBA National Championship rules players taking part in the pairs, triples and fours events should wear the same colours as their playing partners and also use the same stickers.John Jarvis Jenny Walker resized
