The Inter Club League competition was introduced in 1977 following a request that there should be competitive matches played between clubs in the County leading to an eventual winner each year.
The draw for the four Divisions is made every two years so that clubs play against each club in their Division at home one year and away the other. The draw was originally made at the AGM but now takes place at the biennial League Supper, which was introduced to provide members of the Association with another opportunity to meet players from other clubs.
The winners of the Divisions play in semi-finals in August with the successful clubs competing in the final in September.
The winning club holds the Queen's Silver Jubilee Salver for one year. The salver was purchased by the Association as the winner's trophy as a reminder of the year in which the competition was inaugurated.
The runners-up hold the Beryl Turner Salver for one year. This trophy was introduced in 1986 during Beryl Turner's captaincy of the County.
