Team Scotland travels to Bolton for 2024 Senior Home Nations



The Scotland team are travelling to Bolton to compete in the 2024 edition of the Senior Home Nations.

Taking place annually on the May Day Bank Holiday weekend, the senior team challenge event also features England, Ireland, and Wales.

The event is split into two contests, Group A and Group B, which alternate each year.

Group A is made up of men’s and women’s teams in the 35+, 45+ and 50+ age groups.

Group B features men’s and women’s teams comprised of age groups 55+, 60+ and 65+.

The 2024 event features players from Group A and has six separate categories.

This year’s event is hosted by England and will take place at the Bolton Arena.

What is the format?

Each age group squad contests three rubbers – two singles and one doubles.

Each rubber is worth one point.

Each category will form its own mini league, with points awarded as follows:

1st – 4 points

2nd – 3 points

3rd – 2 points

4th – 1 point

Each team’s overall points will be added up at the end of the final day to determine the 2024 Senior Four Nations champions.

Last year, Scotland hosted at Glasgow Club Scotstoun, where England took home the Group B title by four points, with Scotland in second place and Ireland and Wales in joint third place.

Scotland earned category victories in the Men’s 65+ and Women’s 65+ events.
