Celtic Challenge Qualifier (Update) – Pontyclun PC

Last Sunday we had a great turnout at Pontyclun PC on what was not the warmest of days, the days preceding it were glorious as was the day following it but it was March in Wales, what did we expect.

16 teams entered to compete for the eight places available to represent Wales at the Celtic Challenge, which is being held at the same venue over the weekend of the 4th – 5th of May 2019.

It was a tightly contested event on what were generally thought to be challenging pistes. With two teams winning five out of six games and three teams winning four of their six we were left with eleven teams and places for only three of them to represent Wales.

Of the eleven remaining teams six of them had won three games and lost three which meant it came down to points and the Swiss System that was being used to decide who would go through to represent Wales, the final results are in the table below.

Congratulations to all who took part making this a successful event and good luck to the top eight teams who qualified and will be representing Wales in the Celtic Challenge (the rest of us need to get practicing so we are ready to do it all over again for the Home Nations qualifiers).

A big thankyou to Graham Attfiled and Tony Smith for setting up the scoring system and running the event and to Pontyclun PC for hosting it.
