Selection will take into account:

  • scores and relevant positions in EBU national events  such as the Corwen, Pachabo, Tollemache etc
  • performance in county events including the Congress
  • results in Cumbrian team matches
  • good results in other EBU events including  national simultaneous pairs etc
  • consistent  performance at club level.

Friendly matches will be based on the same selection criteria although a regional bias may be applied depending on the location of the match in order to minimise distances and costs involved in travel.Individuals/partnerships can notify the selection committee if they would like to be considered, as can Club Secretaries if they think they know of suitable candidates. It is in the interest of the County to encourage as many players as possible to put their names forward in order to increase the pool of talent from which to choose.

Notification of selection will be agreed approximately 6 weeks in advance of the match date. At this point partnerships confirm their availability. It is particularly important that the Stand-by/Reserve pair also remain available to act as substitutes as ‘last minute’ withdrawals have occurred in the past.
