Cup in two parts. Sterling silver cup with an engraved inscription, 'GRIFFIN ATHLETIC CLUB NETBALL COMPETITION PRESENTED BY JAMES SAINSBURY ESQ.'. The cup is fluted and has two scroll-shaped handles with heart-shaped terminals. It features a stamped hallmark indicating that it was made in Sheffield in 1929. An unidentified makers mark is also present.

The cup rests on a two tier turned wooden stand with 14 shield-shaped metal plates and three rectangular metal plates (each engraved with a winner's name and date) pinned to its surfaces. There is a partial black paper circle attached to the base.
