Please see here for a new entry form for the Ladies Development Divisions which are superseding Ladies Division Two for the 2014/15 league season.
To attempt to counter the current decline of ladies teams competing in the country we have made the following changes;
- 50% subsidy for 2 years. This means each tournament will cost £40.
- Splitting division two into a North (100% based in Cheadle) and South (100% based at Stratford-upon-Avon)
- Relaxation of rules, making it easier to build an eligible team.
- Option for clubs or regions to enter joint teams
- One Ladies Div1 player may compete for a team (as a coach-player)
- All equipment provided, free to use, for tournaments based at Ladies Dev North.
- Remove the requirement for Comprehensive Membership
- Extension of entry deadline to 15th September 2014.
Also see here for an extract of the new rules; please consult this for full details on the league rule changes.
We are very hopeful that this new structure for Ladies polo will lead to a big increase in the number of ladies teams able to compete in the leagues, the intention is to make it easier for more teams and more ladies to be able to compete.
Dates will be released before the end of June.
