National Inter county finals

Region 6 certainly showed their class at the National intercounty finals. Not only did 4 players qualify for England - Shane Thompson (Bristol), Greg Batten (Devon), Sarah Wait (Somerset) and Sophie Gibbs-Nicholls (Devon) -but The Somerset Ladies Team and the Cornish B Team won their sections in the Knock-out cup. Bring that Silverware to Region 6!!

Will Escott (Somerset) will be representing his country in the England Youth team for 2015 having acheived success at the youth team trials.

Region 6 ladies competition

Congratulations to Hayley Desmond (Somerset) winner of the 2015 Region 6 ladies competition. She won the final against Teresa Samuel (Somerset). 

Entrants came from all over the region and enjoyed 2 days of quality competition pool, on the Isle of Wight. I believe Jacque McShane the organiser is looking to put on another competition in July.

Sad Losses

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of 2 influential individuals from our Region.


Trevor Jenkinson

A former Regional Director, National Youth Manager, County Chairman and Secretary. The Man who maintained contact with the Channel Islands and annually took a regional team to challenge them, more recently keeping that contact alive by arranging for local teams to compete.


John Dowdeswell


The most senior Referee inour region for some time, refereeing at all levels through to the World Championships. A regualr at Great Yarmouth and Butlins who was willing to advise and mentor new refs.


Our thoughts are with their respective families and we hope they can now rest in peace.
