    I thought this was a knockout competition involving all clubs from the county. Was this changed?
    Quoting Russ’s old website:
    Inter-Club Knockout Competitions/Pawle Cup

    These tournaments are normally run during the second half of the league (after the Christmas break) and are open to all Clubs participating in the Cornwall Squash County Leagues.

    There is a Mens and a Ladies competition and providing the numbers of Clubs entered is great enough they will play a first round, the winners going on to compete for the Cup and the Losers competing for the Plate.

    Entries are restricted to one team per eligible Club, the team will consist of five strings (as opposed to four in the leagues) and each player must have represented their Club at least three times in the County Leagues before playing in this Competition.

    Has this changed?

      Hi David, your comments are valid and I will, of course, change the draw – plenty of time – if you and Bodmin both fancy a crack at the big boys in div 1. I go back further than Russ even – cough! splutter! – and the original Pawle Cup Hine Plate rules were: Pawle for all Div 1 clubs, Hine for all clubs with first teams in lower divisions – in Div 2,3 etc. Russ obviously changed them and I think, now you’ve drawn attention to it, your idea is better. I will work out a new draw for all six clubs entered seeding Truro (1) and NQY (2) but putting PZ, Garden, you and BOD in first rd. Losers then battle it out for hine. Thanks,
