First played in 1934 The Silver Frigate is our oldest and most prestigious Trophy competition.
The origins of the Frigate as part of the motif for the Club and the design of the trophy for the Club Open competition may be related to the weathervane depicting a three masted Frigate on top of the Farnham Town Hall cupula, the venue for the Clubs first General Meeting, held in 1897.
Unfortunately much of the history regarding the Frigate was lost in a Clubhouse fire many decades ago, but a certain amount of folk lore exists.
Extracted from our Centenary book…
“The story goes that the donor offered to present this truly magnificent trophy to the Club and his generosity was of course gladly accepted. However, when the time came to pay the silversmiths, the mystery donor had made himself very scarce and the Treasurer was forced to make some pretty drastic last minute adjustments to his budgeting.”
