The County Cup Champion for the year in question will be known following the Winter County Cup Event in November and will be officially announced in December.
Recognition will be made at a County and player level (ie) all players who have played for that county in the year in question will each receive a memento which will be presented at that county’s AGM. In addition, the county will be presented with a perpetual trophy which will be presented to that county’s representative at the LTA AGM the year (NB: the trophy will be retained at The NTC).
From 2016, it was agreed that recognition would be made to the county making the biggest year on year improvement on their previous year’s final position. This is calculated based on the number of positions moved in the race from year to year (eg) a county improving from 25th place to 12th place year on year. The county is presented with a perpetual trophy which will be presented to that county’s representative at the LTA AGM the year (NB: the trophy will be retained by the LTA at The NTC).
In addition, both the County Cup Race Champion and the ‘Most Improved County’, will be able to nominate one player who has played for the respective county to receive a pair of Centre Court tickets for the 1st Friday of The Championships, Wimbledon and to receive an invitation to attend the LTA Cocktail Party (as long as they are not already attending in another capacity).
