NCA competitions

This page describes the various competitions run by the NCA.

Nottinghamshire League

The League runs from 1 September to 30 April. All clubs affiliated to the NCA are eligible to compete. Teams consist of five players (four in the bottom division) and play each other home and away during the course of the season.

League tables from past seasons can be viewed in the archive. Detailed results are available from 2005–06 onwards. Many years (including some quite recent ones) are missing – can you supply the missing details?
