The 2022 Welsh Cup for Clubs has ended, and the Executive would like to thank all those clubs who took part. Hopefully, next year we shall see more clubs entering the competition.
The final table is shown below, but we would like to congratulate the SWBRC PS on winning this year’s Welsh Cup for Clubs after winning all the encounters and also Monkstone PC, who came second.
Unfortunately, Wenvoe PC has had to withdraw from the competition; therefore, their results to date are void, and the table will be recalculated based on the four remaining teams.
The only remaining encounter is Caerleon PC v Monkstone PC, scheduled for Sunday morning, the 31st of July, at SWBRC.

Team Managers will toss a coin to establish the home team, and then the Home Team Manager will draw for the block of lanes to be used for the encounter.
Registration and score sheets will be issued on the day.
The draw for the Welsh Cup for Clubs took place during the Monkstone PC Open Doubles. Representatives of four of the five clubs were present. The representative from Caerleon RFC PC drew on behalf of Pontyclun RFC PC.

Follow this link for the Rules for Welsh Cup for Club. 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 for Clubs is an inter-club competition there is a European aspect. The WPA will ask the winning Club if they would like to participate in the European Cup for Clubs, 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.
