ADULTS AND SENIORS TEAM ENGLAND QUALIFICATION PROCESS

3rd January 2022

Following on from last year’s Team England trials, it’s time to announce the future qualification process for Team England.

We want to ensure that Team England squads are selected and best prepared for the challenging conditions at international Championships. Therefore, qualifying will be played at multiple centres, on multiple patterns, and over a longer period (rather than single qualification events), whilst minimizing the cost of holding additional events. Squads will also be formed earlier in the year to give more time for training sessions and preparations for the following year’s Championships and events.

Going forward we will be using events that are ran by the BTBA and the ESBT (English Sport Bowling Tour) to create a rankings table to determine the qualifying players for the Team England squads, as follows:
