We have just added a link in our top menu to a list of all the previous winners of the Hamilton-Russell Cup.
On a cursory glance I divide up the tournament into the following eras:
- 1924 – 1939 National Liberal Club, Authors Club and the RAC dominant
- 1940 – 1947 No Competition
- 1948 – 1968 National Liberal Club, The Athenaeum and the RAC dominant
- 1969 – 1984 Only winner: The RAC!
Since 1985, it has been much more of a mixed bag with the Oxford & Cambridge and the MCC joining the RAC and the Athenaeum as multiple winners.
The only winners of the Cup in just one year are – Imperial Chess Club (1939) and Hurlingham (joint winners in 1988)
