Mercury Cup 2017

Merc Cup trophy

Mercury Cup mixed knock-out competition

Carisbrooke lost in the quarter-finals last year but this is a competition where Carisbrooke has enjoyed much success.

We won the tile four times in the 1920s, the decade of the cup’s inception (sponsored by local newspaper the Leicester Mercury), and have gone on to tally an impressive 35 wins since.

In more recent times, we won the title in 2015 in a tightly-fought contest against Hamilton, a year after losing to Roundhill for the crown in our bid to three-peat in an equally close final-set encounter. We made the final in four consecutive years from 2012-2015, winning the title in 2012 (our first win for 16 years), 2013 and 2015.
