GB Masters Mens Beach Player Applications

Opening applications to tryout for GB Master Men for World Beach Championships 2017 in Royan, France.
We would like to invite applications from players that would like to try out for the GB Masters Men team competing at WCBU2017. The tournament is going to be held in Royan, France from 18th to 24th June 2017. After a 4th place finish in Dubai at WCBU2015 and two bronze medals at EUC2015 and WUGC2016 we are looking to build a team capable of medalling again.
To be eligible for the masters men division players must be 33 or older in the year of the tournament (born 1984 or earlier). More info about the tournament is up on the website (
The team will be headed by David Povey and supported by Paul ‘Voodoo’ Waite and Ewen Buckling. As stated above we are looking to build a team capable of medalling and would encourage applications from anyone who will be 33 or over next year. The last two years have seen some great success for the Masters programme and while we are looking to harness that we are also looking to bring in new players. We are particularly keen to hear from anyone just turning 33 and ready to dip their toe into the Masters division.
We will be entering a team into UK Beach Nationals (Sept 17/18 in Bournemouth) and using this as part of the trial process. We appreciate it’s towards the end of a long season and attendance at this is not compulsory but it is encouraged; especially if you are new to the masters scene. If you’re interested in WCBU next year but can’t make UK Beach Nationals then still reply and get yourself on the list.
An initial selection will be done from email applications and those that play at UK Beach Nationals with further training dates announced in due course.
