ESMBA National Competitions

The 'Nationals' are the flagship annual open competitions organised by the ESMBA

To enter the Nationals, entrants must take part in their respective County National Qualifier Championships to seek qualification.

Entry forms for these Championships are sent to club Secretaries by the Competition Secretary at the start of the season.

The dates for this year’s (2023-2024) qualifying National competitions are shown in the County Diary and are reproduced below.

The number of places allocated at the finals is dependant on the overall number of entries across all counties, so is not known until all counties qualifier results have been returned.
