Player selection for the senior County Ist, IInd and IIIrd teams is the responsibility of the County Selection Committee.

Anyone wishing to be considered for selection is strongly encouraged to enter.
The Selection Committee for 2017/18 is currently:
- Chair: Natalie Taylor
- Alison Reed
- Sam Scharf
- Daniel Bates
To contact the Selection Committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
In making selection decisions, the Committee form their opinions based on the following set of criteria (in no particular order):
- County performances from previous seasons;
- Results at the restricted tournament;
- Results in other competitive events (leagues and tournaments);
- Potential for improvement / development trajectory;
- Discipline strength (given the format requirements of the County competition); and
- Commitment to the County.
