    Do you aspire to shoot for County? Even if you think you are not quite getting the scores it is important to show that you are interested and to get into the habit of submitting scores for all your rounds, even short ones. This will bring you to the notice of the selectors who are keen to have as many people as possible putting in scores, in ALL bowtypes and ALL age groups (yes there are junior teams). You can read more about selection here.

    The forms are online, so easy-peasy - no printing down or signing. Here is the Declaration form and here the Score Submission Form.
