The Lathom Browne Cup is a singles handicap competition that runs throughout the season. Entrants are divided into eight Grades – by handicap – and play a simple knockout format, off handicap. The eight winning finalists go through to the final stages, and are paired in grade order, ie the Grade A winner plays the Grade B winner, and so on.
Matches are a single set; first to nine games. All games are 40 all, not deuce/advantage.
