Senior Inter County Championships


The Inter County Championships is the largest competition that we run with more than 2,000 players representing their counties in 22 categories throughout the season across Senior, Masters and Junior categories.

The Senior Championships provide competitive opportunities for players beyond club level in a team environment, and the opportunity to represent their county.

The event is split up into two weekends, Division One and Premier.

Event Dates

Stage 1 (Division 1 only): 26th-27th February 2022

Finals (Premier Division & Division 1 promotion): 9th - 10th April 2022

The draws for Stage 1 are now available on https://senioricc.leaguemaster.co.uk/. All players wishing to participate must be current ES members and be nominated on Leaguemaster by each county in order to be able to play. The court schedule and timings for each venue can be found here. There is one tab for the North and one tab for the South. Groups are colour coded. If there are any changes prior to the weekend then they will communicated in an updated version to all impacted teams as soon as possible.

All groups have been drawn at random with the following formats applied to fit the number of entries:

  • Men- round robin groups with group winners to go through into an 8 team draw at the Finals weekend, with the top 2 teams gaining promotion to the Premier division.
