A Junior is under the age of 21 on the 1st January in the year of competition.
A Veteran is 55 or over on the 1st January in the year of competition. A Super Veteran is 65 or over on the 1st January in the year of the competition.

 

ENGLAND TEAM CAPTAINCY

The Team Captain will be the member with the most number of appearances (caps) in the specific event’s team, irrespective of category (except in the case of DTL as below). If any team member has already been Captain at any time in the past, their appearances will be counted from the year following their last captaincy.

In the event of two or more members having the same number of caps, the member with the earliest first team appearance will become Captain. If there is still a tie, the lowest ORIGINAL CPSA number will determine the captaincy for that year. At a team’s inception, the member with the lowest qualifying total points score will take the captaincy, if there is a tie, the lowest ORIGINAL CPSA number will determine the captaincy for that year.

For the Down-The-Line Home International only, Seniors, Ladies, Juniors, Veterans and Super Veteran category Captains, are required in order to allow England Team Members to compete for the Seniors, Ladies, Juniors, Veterans and Super Veterans Captain’s Cups. The Seniors’ Captain will act as overall Team Captain and all others will be selected under the above criteria.
