Crockfords Cup

2020/21 First Round starts 12th October 2020, played online

The English open teams-of-four championship.

This is England's premier teams championship. It consists of knock-out matches in the early stages, played privately, qualifying eight teams to contest an all-play-all final.

The competition is part of the Championship Series, in which points can be earned towards the Player of the Year Championship.

The Crockford's Plate competition is open to all unseeded teams who are defeated in their first match of the main event, be this in round 1, or in round 2 following a bye. The last 8 from the Crockfords Plate will play alongside the main final (same dates, venue and format).
