Usually consists of a Final, a Candidates section and then Reserves sections.
FINAL - The Final is a 15 player all-play-all with each player having 14 games. Very tough competition - this is British CC at its best.

From 2013/14 onwards, there will be two Finals running concurrently at any one time.
