The NSW State Pennants is the oldest event on the NSW Calendar.
The competition plays off in a Sides event of 12 players. Grade 1 is administered by the State Match Committee in conjunction with local Zone Match Committees. The Zone Match Committees administer Grades 2 to 7 with the assistance of the State Match Committee.
Club sides who have qualified for the finals competition, are the champions of their Zone formats and commit themselves to the tournament against representatives from each of the other Zones. Players represent their Club and themselves at this leading event.
