Teams from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales compete against each other in individual matches.
A match consists of three foursomes and five singles, each over the same 18 holes, with the foursomes being played first.
The scores are calculated by team results with each team scoring one point for a team win and half a point for a halved match.
If two or more countries score an equal number of team points and have each won the same number of individual games, the tie will be resolved by aggregating the number of holes played in the individual games won and the team with the fewest number of holes played is declared the winner.
The Ladies Senior Home Internationals were first played in 2003 at Whittington Heath in England.
Teams from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales competed for the Sue Johnson Trophy.
Since the event was introduced, England have dominated the competition winning 10 times. Ireland have won the Ladies’ Senior Home Internationals twice with both Scotland and Wales recording one victory.
