Buckinghamshire County Championships

And National Playoffs 2019/20


 Each year the ESMBA invite all registered players to enter the National Championships. To enter these National Championships players must first qualify through Local Heats organised by their County. This year we are again holding the two competitions in one, the Bucks County Championships together with the National playoffs. The top four in each competition who have said yes to National entry on the entry forms will be forwarded to the ESMBA.


The Bucks County Local Heats will be held as follow:  Singles – 29th September 2019;

Pairs – 3rd November 2019; Over 55 Pairs - 8th December 2019; Triples – 17th November 2019; Fours – 5th January 2020; Mixed Fours – 19th January 2020, all at Handy Cross Sports Centre, High Wycombe.


The National finals for Mixed Fours and Over 55 Pairs will be held on 7th/8th March 2020 – the Singles, Pairs, Fours and Triples will be held on 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th April 2020 respectively. The venue for these competitions is yet to be decided. Unless you can commit to these dates for the finals you should not enter the playoffs but you can still enter the Bucks Championships.


The entry forms should be fully completed and returned to the County Organiser by 22nd  September at the latest, together with the appropriate fee of £8.00 per person per event.


If you are unable to make up a pair, triple, four, mixed four or Over 55 Pair please complete the entry forms with the players who wish to compete and the organiser will try to build teams from other clubs. Please make sure the forms show separate entries which are not complete teams.


Please remember that the more entries we have for the county playoffs the more entries we will be allocated at the Nationals.


Please return your completed entry forms and fees to the County Organiser:
