2018-19 Competition

The 2018-19 competition was held on the weekend of 24/25 November 2018 at Ross Bowling Club with 24 entrants competing in 6 round robin groups on the first day before 16 players progressed to the second round of four more round robin groups leading to the knockout stages. By the semi-final stage the three most recent winners of the competition remained in contention. Defending champion Joe Loveys (Gorsley Chapel) defeated the 2016 champion John Jillings (Woolhope) in his semi final whilst 3 time winner Ian Park (Ross) defeated his club mate Ian Roe in a repeat of the 2017 final.
