Holders: Celia and Derek Oram, Sally Bennett, Roger Gibbons & Piers Fuller

Teams who have qualified from their heats can now register for the first knock-out day using our online entry form: click here.

The Humble Cup is Hertfordshire's main teams-of-four championship. The winners 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.
