Guidelines for GB selection
International selection will take into account results in the three British National Championships over the previous period of twelve months. If this is inconclusive, then results over the twelve months before this will be considered. If these results prove inconclusive, performance in the 4 Nations and other British and International competitions will be considered; play off trials might also be used.
For selection of the Men’s and Women’s 35 teams only, the following events and criteria will be considered in addition to the criteria set out in the previous paragraph. Previous World rankings, previous GB rankings, International events, Aegon Team Tennis results, Inter County Championships (County Week and Indoor), the National 35 Championships, the new 30s events in Nottingham, Wimbledon and Eastbourne, the 4 Nations and the 35 County event in Eastbourne.
An exception to the selection criteria may be considered in the case of an outstanding player. In this connection, players who are involved in performance coaching within British Tennis may be considered.
Only players who are registered with an ITF IPIN number will be considered for team selection. Inappropriate behaviour in competition could be detrimental to team performance and will be deemed a bar to selection.
