Our teams travelling to represent Northern Ireland at the 2019 EBA European Championships in Bridlington from 1st - 4th May at U15/18/23 level will be formed from these three events with attendance and performance playing a vital role. The European Championships are different from the World Championships in that each Nation can enter both 'A' and 'B' Teams instead of just an 'A' Team.
