County Championships – Draw 2014
The initial stages of the County Championships are internal competitions within the five County unions; North (NCCU), South (SCCU), East (EACU), West (WECU) and the Midlands (MCCU). Each Union decides beforehand how many teams they want to nominate for each section and before the end of March they advise the controller which county they would like to fill each nomination slot. Each section is then run on a knockout format according to the pairings below.

P= preliminary Q= quarter final S= semi final with the finals being played at a central venue on the 12th of July.

The numbers below refer to the nominations. Taking the first Open Quarter final (Q1) as an example MCCU 1 (the first nomination of the MCCU) plays SCCU 2 (the second nomination of the SCCU).
