Age Analysis

The age-distribution make interesting reading, with clear demarcations visible.  The strongest cohort, in terms of numbers, lies in the early juvenile years, with very strong figures in the Under 8 to Under 10 groupings.  After this there is a significant, but tapering drop-off in numbers, falling to the lowest region, between the ages of 20 and 25.  Clearly this latter grouping needs further analysis.  In terms of Internation participation and representation, one would imagine that this group would be expected to provide the greatest potential, consequently the low numbers in the grouping indicates bothe a worry and great potential.

Juvenile to Under 23

This closer look at the Juvenile cohort shows the drop-off, after age 10, even more emphatically.

Senior (23 to 34)

 As with the higher-age Juvenile figures, the Senior figures remain quite low, until age 30

Masters 35 to 49

The Masters figures are quite strong, before falling off again after age 47

Masters 50 to 60

The Masters number remain quite stable, but tapering, as might be expected

Masters 60+

The Over 60's Masters numbers are probably quite deceptive, as these include many Masters who are no longer in active competition, but continue to play a vital role in the sport, as club activists, coaches and officials...or indeed a combination of all these roles.....and more!
