Background
The Wiltshire SRA used to run two annual KO team competitions for the benefit of its members. These have always ran concurrently with the main Winter League, with the Finals taking place around mid-April, once the Leagues were well and truly part of history. For some reason, fewer teams have always participated in the Cup competitions than the Leagues which is somewhat surprising, since the entry fee was always very cheap and lavish prizes always awaited the winning individual team members. On top of this came a significant bit of local publicity for the Club and players concerned.

Nowadays, just one Cup competition is played, this being a handicap event open to all League teams. This is very popular with most teams participating.
Rules
Rules are as per normal league matches but:
  • Teams consist of 4 players playing in merit order. 
  • American (point-per-rally) scoring with each game to 15 at 14/14 players to win by 2
  • Best of 5 games however players may decide beforehand to play best of 3 rather than best of 5 if time is running short (has to be mutually acceptable to all concerned).
  • Handicaps set by League Secretary and may fluctuate as competition progresses as present form is taken into account:
    • If both negative handicaps (e.g. -16 and -4) then adjusted to -12 & 0. 
    • If both positive handicaps (e.g. +3 and +1) then adjusted to +2 & 0. 
    • If mix (e.g. -16 and +2) then play as is
  • Results determined firstly by number of strings, if a draw then number of games, then points within games.  If still a draw awarded to away team
  • Entertainment fees to be split between teams.
  • Court costs are the responsibility of the home team - though venues may be switched if mutually acceptable to save on court costs.
  • Matches not played by due date will result in "toss of coin" deciding fixture, unless one team is deemed to have been particularly at fault.
