SENIORS TRIALS to be directed by Sarah Amos

The selectors invite entries for the Seniors Trial to be held in Cardiff on February 2-3 2019. The Teltscher Trophy is on 5-7 April 2019 in Edinburgh.

Having invited comments on the proposed format and carefully reviewing the replies, the selectors have decided on adopting a Teams structure for this year’s trial. This was requested by a clear majority of the respondents.

Entries should be sent to Tony Disley [ emerd@talktalk.net ] by December 17th, and may be from teams of four or from pairs. The selectors will endeavour to form teams acceptable to both pairs for those without team mates. We urge as many eligible players as possible to take part.

The winning team is guaranteed selection with the third pair to be chosen by the selectors. £100 will be paid to each member of the selected team as a contribution to their expenses.
