Performance > County Cup

County Cup Events provides the opportunity for players to represent their County on a Regional and National Stage across all age groups from 9U to 75+.

Middlesex gains points based on their performances at Junior Events and Open Adult events towards the County Cup Race.

In 2019, we WON the County Cup Race for the first time.

Our 2020 campaign started and sadly ended on 28th February with the 18U County Cup. Our Girls defended their National Title in Bath, and Boys topped Group 2 in Wirral which means we have two teams in Group 1 for 2022.

In 2021, mixed fortunes across the teams but it was great to be back on court and everyone out on court.
