The CSAA organises a number of annual championships open to members of the Civil Service Sports Council (CSSC). The events encompass a Departmental Team Championship with points awarded to successful teams and individuals. The overall winners are awarded the Queenborough Trophy, whilst smaller Departments compete for the Braben-Whiffen Trophy. Departmental Team Managers (see Officials) co-ordinate their entry and pay travel and subsistence to team members. Events normally take place around the same time each year.
