English Under-14 Championship

The English Under-14 Championship was given an overhaul at the start of the 2019/20 season to help encourage more players in this age group to participate in events.

Events begin with club-based qualifiers, run by a club’s regular coach or tournament director, predominantly at venues with an established junior set-up.
