Message from C.T.S. David Gold




I am inviting you, to enter a team in either the Kempson Cup, or North East League, or preferably both competitions. These are major teams of four competitions, and whilst the former carries Green Points, winning the latter entitles the winners to represent the NEBA in the EBU Inter Counties team championsip, for the Pachabo Cup, which teams from the North East has now won twice in the last four years.


Kempson Cup & Plate

The Kempson Cup will be run on a knock out basis, and numbers of entries will determine whether there will seeding, or whether there will be an initial draw for the whole event. Teams knocked out in the first two rounds will automatically be entered into the Kempson Plate, at no extra charge.


North East League

The format will depend on the number of teams entering, and the competition may consist of one or more leagues, with a play-off to establish a winner.

The cost of each of these competions remains at £16 per team, which can consist of up to 6 players.


As you will all appreciate, I am new to running these two events, and if you want to enter I would appreciate receiving:-

Confirmation of your entry by 16th August

Names of your team members

Captain’s name, address, phone number(s), and email details

A cheque for £16.00 made out to NEBA


Any queries please get in touch,
but I look forward to receiving a bumper number of entries this year.
