Fixtures & Results : 2021–22

The league usually runs from 1 September to 15 May. All clubs affiliated to the NCA are eligible to compete. Teams normally consist of five players (four in the bottom division) and play each other home and away during the course of the season, but this season all matches will be played over four boards.

We are using the ECF’s League Management System now. Apart from team captains, each club should have one (or two) nominated members who will be able to submit match results. If you’re unsure of yours then ask your club secretary.

If you have any questions, or need to submit your results by email then contact :

Notts League Update

Due to Coronavirus restrictions the 2019-2020 season was suspended in March 2020 with most teams having two or three matches still to play. It was hoped that these could be completed later in the year when allowed, but (as restrictions went on) the LMC eventually decided to end the season with proportional points allocated for those remaining matches.
