Fixtures List 2019-20 Season

Please advise the Controller and webmaster of any errors or changes. Please note this page relies on information supplied by the controller and county organisers. If there is any doubt about dates, please contact your team captain.

Please note that in the new year (1) invitations to compete in the u180 competition will be sent out and (2) teams in the Midlands Championship will be asked whether they are seeking nominations for the national stages of the Open or Minor Counties team competitions.

If players are in any doubt about dates or venues, contact your team captain. Dates for fixtures in 2019-20 are based on the list e-mailed to team captains by the controller on 5 September. Any changes since the 5 September list are shown in red for new dates and the old dates are greyed out. Changes since the 5 September list are listed below.
