Although there are no women-only events at the Rural Senior Championships, all-women teams have competed against all-men and mixed teams for many years.


At the 2023 Champs over the weekend of 25-26 March, for the first time the best all-women team will be awarded the Outstanding Female Team Trophy. The winning team will no doubt proudly display the trophy in their fire station.  

“A lot of rural female volunteers like to be treated the same as the men, which is why we haven’t considered doing a female-only event,” Chair of the Rural Competition Committee and Millbrook brigade member Neil Labbett said. “Everyone likes competing against each other.

“But we’ve decided to introduce this all-female team trophy, which will be awarded to the female team with the most points.”
