The Ray Cornell Trophy is a simple multi-teams of four event.
The Ray Cornell Prize is a club competition to win the right to represent Essex in the Garden Cities Competition.
To be eligible a club must enter two teams designated A and B. If a club enters more than two teams the A and B teams must be named before the start of the competition. The winning club is the club whose A and B teams’ positions when added together has the lowest value. Thanks to the kind generosity of Mrs Barbara Cornell the winning club will receive the prize of £200 to help offset expenses for participating in the Garden Cities Competition. Any remainder would be used by the club to assist their club players in entering ECBA events.
