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 starts on 28th February with the 18U County Cup. Our Girls look to defend their National Title in Bath, and Boys start in Group 2 in Wirral with the aim of getting promoted to Group 1 for 2021. See more info here.
