League The leagues runs from October through to May and most clubs participate. This season there are seven divisions and clubs can enter as many teams as they like. Matches are played on weekday evenings.

u120 League This is a special league to give lower graded and new players more competition.

Knock-Out Cups Alongside the league we run four cup competitions, Open, U160, U140 and U120, on a straight knock-out basis.

County Teams Herts currently has four teams playing inter-county matches. If they do well, they go on to play in the national final stages.

Herts Congress In early November the HCA run a four tournament weekend congress at the excellent venue of County Hall in Hertford. This is an 'open' event i.e. open to all.

Closed County Championships A sort of mini congress open only to Herts county players.
