The 2020/21 season (during which the SCCU County Championships were not held due to the covid-19 pandemic) the Union held alternate competitions online using this ECF LMS site for the first time. You can select the events for the 2020 online alternate competitions that were held from the above 'Previous Seasons' menu option.

SCCU County Championships have resumed, with the 2021/22 season. You can find the section fixtures and league tables (but not in tie-break order) in the Events panel on your left and participating counties in the Club panel on your right.
