The Association runs four team cup competitions over the summer months:
- The Chapman Cup is open to all and is run on a knock-out basis, with a handicap element.
- The Birstall Cup is the plate competition to the Chapman Cup. It is open to first round losers from the Chapman Cup and is run on the same handicap basis.
- The Harrod Cup is a 5-round team rapidplay swiss event, open to teams whose players have an average grade no more than 125.
- The Wylie Cup is also a 5-round team rapidplay swiss event (or as the case may be, a round-robin event), open to teams whose players have an average grade no more than 175.
The most up-to-date ECF grades will be used for these competitions. Ungraded players must be allocated a provisional grade by grading officer Brian Foreman before playing.
