Welsh Cup for Clubs

The Welsh Cup for Clubs is an inter-club competition to find the best club in Wales.  The cup was first competed for in 2007 and was won by the Wheatsheaf Pétanque Club.

The competition is run annually to find the Welsh Club that will be invited by the WPA to enter the European Cup for Clubs, which is organised by the Confédération Européenne de Pétanque (CEP).

Each 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 that 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 for Clubs 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 match consists of eleven games played over three (3) rounds.

Due to insufficient interest from our clubs, the competition will not run this year. However, the CEP is due to make a decision regarding the European Cup for Clubs in August 2021. If it is decided to run the event, the WPA Executive will ask clubs to see if they are interested in attending. Depending on the number of clubs a qualification competition will be arranged.

Follow this link for the Rules for Welsh Cup for Club. This will be updated when required.

All the entry fees for the Welsh Cup for Clubs are ‘ring fenced’ and an amount decided by the WPA Executive shall be provided to the winners, if the club accepts the invitation to participate in the European Cup for Clubs. No further financial support from the WPA is available.

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:

  1.  Number of Match Points, if two or more teams are tied, then:
  2.  Game Points between the tied teams.
  3.  Points Difference between the tied teams.
  4.  Points Difference between all the teams in the group.

All results must be relayed to the WPA Executive using the official Registration/Score Sheet.
