The Longman Cup is a national inter-club croquet tournament that is run each year in England and Wales. Club teams comprise 4 players who must each have handicaps between 3.5 and 20, and with their aggregate handicap being at least 24. It is a knock-out competition within each region, played with handicaps, with the regional winners progressing to the national semi-finals and final at the end of the season.

Last year we lost to Letchworth in the 2nd round.
Watford has done quite well in this event in the past, though with several players gaining lower handicaps and becoming ineligible for the Longman Cup our success has migrated more recently towards the Mary Rose instead. We were national Longman Cup champions in 2001, national finalists in 2003, 2012 and 2015, and regional finalists in 2004 and 2005.
