Counties are arranged into divisions; at the highest level there is Division 1A and Division 1B and the top teams in each one contest the final in November each year.
Since 1981, in the Men’s competition there have been 280 events, 52 of which Surrey have won and 18 in which they have been runners-up, i.e. in 25% of all the finals played a Surrey team has competed. In the Women’s, there have been 244 events, 56 of which Surrey have won and 31 in which they have been runners-up, i.e. over 35% of all finals played, a Surrey team has competed.
In 2015 Surrey won 4 events out of 13, the Men’s 60s and 70s and the Women’s 65s and 70s. In 2005, Surrey won 7 out of the 11 events staged.
We look forward to further success in 2016 with all 13 teams competing at Division 1 Level. Can we improve upon 2015? Our captains will start the task of arranging this year’s matches in February 2016 and ensuring that we maximise our chances of success in all age groups.
