County Cup

The County Cup is a national series of inter-county leagues and tournaments organised by the LTA for players selected on merit to play for their county.

To play in County Cup players must meet the eligibility criteria of living or having been born within Shropshire. It's a great honour to be asked to represent your County.

All players representing Shropshire are asked to wear the official County uniform whenever possible. This is provided by our County sponsor Babolat through their partner Intersport and can be purchased through the County shop. You will need the county code in order to make a purchase - please ask your team captain for this.

Junior Team

The Tennis Shropshire/ LTA policy document on selection for the county teams.

Shropshire has a Junior County Training Programme for all age groups from red ball (under 8) upwards and juniors are selected to play for Shropshire in accordance with the Junior Selection Policy. This sets out the minimum requirement which players must meet in order to be considered as well as the process of selection itself.

There are junior County Cup competitions for boys and girls in the age groups 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 14U and 18U with one County Cup competition being held each summer for each age group except 8U for which there are two competitions each year, in spring and autumn.

To find out more about Junior County Tennis and the County Cup including how your child can be considered for County training please speak to your Club Coach or contact us.
