Victorian Seniors Team Selection 2017
Selection for the Victorian Seniors Team for 2017 will be run as follows:
There will be a two-stage process, with a “Last Train” event for any pair that was unable to play in, or failed to qualify from, stage one.
Stage One: Monday evenings (13 and 27 February, 6 March)
Last train: Sunday 26 March
Final: Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 April. The participants will be the top six pairs from stage one, the representatives of each of the three regions and the top three pairs from the “Last Train”. (Should one region fail to nominate a pair then the next-placed pair from the “Last Train” will be included. Should two regions fail to nominate a pair then the second vacancy would be filled by the highest-placed pair from Stage One that is not yet a participant.)
Please note that:
- All players entering the playoffs declare their availability to represent Victoria in the Interstate Teams at the ANC (15 – 27 July).
- Please note that clauses 3.4 and 3.5 of the VBA’s General Regulations will apply in the event of an unauthorised withdrawal, except in the case of accident or emergency.
- Once a player is entered in a pair he/she is prohibited from withdrawing and entering in another pair.
