Following a member consultation the 2021-2022 GBR Selection Policy was published by BF on 22nd July 2021 and this policy has now been approved by the Board. 

The 2021-2022 GBR Selection Policy now covers all of the key competitive age groups from U17s through to Seniors. You can read the approved selection policy below:


You can read about the consultation process, the updates that were made to the policy and the specific items arising from the consultation from previous announcements here.

Key Adjustments (Reminder)

  • Consolidated multiple selection documents into a single document for all age categories.
  • Standardised automatic qualification standards to compete for GBR at Major Championships for all ages, where applicable.
  • Reflected the proposed changes set out in the new Ranking Scheme proposals for 2021-22 (e.g., Under 23 Ranking Scheme and recognition of EFC Under 23 events).
  • Added clauses allowing greater flexibility for the impact of COVID-19 on events and athletes.

The GBR selection pages will be updated with the 2021-2022 selection policy here.
