Free Entry for the 2024 Welsh Cup
Does your club think it is pretty good at playing petanque? Then, why not try to gain the Best Club in Wales accolade by participating in the Welsh Cup?
It was been decided and announced at the 2024 AGM that all clubs are automatically registered to participate, and the even better news is there is no entrance fee.
There are currently 12 Affiliated Clubs, which will make the organiser’s task nice and easy if all the clubs participate. This is the only competition for clubs where any club member, regardless of membership level, can participate.
We are currently reviewing the rules for 2024 and the competition format, which is directed by the number of clubs wishing to participate. This has the opportunity to be a great inter-club competition for both the new and well-established clubs, so please do think carefully before opting out of this fun competition.
Further details will be published in due course.
Please confirm your club’s involvement in one way or another by completing the form below.
For each encounter a club team can consist of 6-8 players under the following conditions:
- The teams of 6 players must possess at least 1 player of the opposite sex to the rest of the team;
- The teams of 7-8 players must possess at least 2 players of the opposite sex to the rest of the team.
All the participants must be licensed with the Club they represent at the time of the competition and may not, under any circumstances, play for another club during the course of the competition.
The games for the Welsh Cup are played in the following format:
- Five (5) open singles and one (1) between the designated female players,
- Two (2) open doubles and one (1) mixed double,
- One (1) open triple, one (1) mixed triple.
Each encounter consists of eleven games played over three (3) rounds.
Follow this link for the Rules for the Welsh Cup. This will be updated when required.
Ideally, the Welsh Club Champions shall be decided upon the total number of points won. However, should there be a tie on the number of wins, then Article 22, detailed in the published Rules European Cup For Clubs, shall be used, which states that:
The following formula will be applied to decide the results:
- The number of Match Points, if two or more teams are tied, then:
- Game Points between the tied teams.
- Points Difference between the tied teams.
- Points Difference between all the teams in the group.
All results must be relayed to the WPA Executive using the official Registration/Score Sheet.
European Cup for Clubs
Although the Welsh Cup is an inter-club competition, there is a European aspect. The WPA will ask the winning Club if they want to participate in the European Cup, held in France at the end of the year. This invitation is NOT a compulsory requirement for the winning Club and may be declined.
The European Cup for Clubs is organised by the Confédération Européenne de Pétanque (CEP). Click here to find out more.
