President’s Cup 2019


Message from the National President:
Huge thanks to the members of Caerleon RFC for hosting today’s President’s Cup, especially Konrad Tomczyk for organising.
Two teams finished on 5-wins with the victory honours going to Gemma Foster, Tansy Mayfield and Richard Harris.
Runners-up were Mathew Howells, Robert Pugh & Gareth Spencer.
More importantly, that means all-4 players heading to Almeria for the World Championships in 2-weeks had some excellent practice.
Well done to everyone who turned up and played.






Final positions were:-

Dear member,
As requested at the recent WPA Ordinary General Meeting (although it was already on the Executive Committee’s “To-Do List”), I have now completed an audit of the list of members’ contact details held on our membership database and our Constant Contact records.
As a result, I have sent a Constant Contact email to every member whose email address is on record and as wishing to receive our emails (i.e. excluding anyone for whom we have no email address or who has previously opted to Unsubscribe fro our mailings).
Any member who receives the email but who no longer wishes to receive them, can do so using the Unsubscribe link contained in the email.
However, please keep in mind, we are intending the use this more regularly in future as a major method of keeping in touch with our members.
Should you see this notice and not receive an email, but would normally expect to do so, please contact me and I will attempt to resolve the issue. This will be either because we have no email address for you, an incorrect email address or you have previously Unsubscribed from our mailings.
If you have any further comments or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact me or any other member of the Executive Committee.
Kind regards
Robert Pugh
National President.

League Cup/Plate Update

Unfortunately Wenvoe Raiders were included in the draw for the League Cup/Plate when they had indicated that they did not want to take part. This has meant that Pool B fixture list has had to be revised. A simple omission of Wenvoe Raiders did not work as 1 team ended up with 3 home fixtures out of 4 games whilst another had 3 away games. The pattern of the fixture grid from Pools C & D has therefore been repeated for Pool B. 

If you are in Pool B and have downloaded the fixture list, please download the latest version “rev 1 – 8 April 2019”.
