2018 winners: Bill Gordon, Maggie Dawson, Bill Thurl, Jeff Green, Jean Anderson & Jacqui Collier
The Humble Cup is Hertfordshire's main teams-of-four championship. The winners are invited to represent the county in the Pachabo Cup.
Heats for the Humble Cup are held in clubs. The top 50% of teams in each heat qualify for the first knock-out day in January. Note that players can only play in one heat.
Everyone playing the knock-out rounds must have Hertfordshire as their county of primary allegiance. Non-Hertfordshire players may still qualify at a heat, but would then have to switch allegiance if they wanted to play in the knock-out rounds.
Teams can have up to six members over the course of the competition.
Rule change for 2018-2019: If a team wishes to bring in a new player during the knockout stages, it is now acceptable for that player to have previously played in a club heat for a different team. Only one such player is allowed per team. We hope that this rule change will make it easier to find substitutes and reduce the number of teams having to drop out due to unavailability.
We have a different venue for the first knock-out day this season: it will be played at Bushey Sports Club (the Watford & Bushey Bridge Club venue). Teams who have qualified from their club heats can now enter using the link further down this page.
Heats are being held at the following clubs:
First knock-out day
