The Eton Fives Association is the governing body for the sport of Eton Fives. The sport today is flourishing and expanding into new areas as never before and the EFA aims to promote and support the playing and coaching of Fives at school and adult level wherever there are courts and to explore all possible avenues to create new Fives centres and encourage new players to take up the game.

We are always looking for new people to join the Board or any of the sub-committees and this is a reminder that all members are entitled and indeed strongly encouraged to apply for any position. If more than one person applies for one specific role, such as Chairman, then a vote may be involved. If you would like to apply then please contact Gareth Hoskins either directly or via the CONTACT US link.
