Representative Teams


Substantial progress was made last year with most of the 8 new Areas being able to raise teams at most Age Group levels. The East Area raised teams at all age group levels and it is our intention to do so again in 2023. As we try to increase the number of County and other Masters’ competitions within the East Area we are always looking for new players, managers, selectors and coaches to step forward. There is nothing stopping you managing at one age group and helping select at another. Should you wish to volunteer please contact any of the listed individuals, as appropriate.

Eligibility Criteria: A player must have reached the qualifying age within the year of the competition and is a member of a club affiliated in the East or, if not a member of any club, then resides in the East. The East member Counties include Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and South Lincolnshire.
