Inter-Club Competitions

Our Inter-Club Competitions are open to clubs containing players of all ages and abilities – with a range of events designed to meet your individual requirements.

We particularly welcome entries from those clubs who may not have entered one of our competitions before, as this is a great opportunity to improve your game, take on some of our top players and perhaps win a place in the National Finals at Royal Leamington Spa.

All events are organised on a knock-out basis, with the early rounds played locally and the National Finals at Victoria Park, Royal Leamington Spa, which will be the host venue for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

So whether you are a regular competitor or new to our sport we have plenty of opportunities for you to get involved.
