Founders Cup

The Founders Cup is the League's team knock out competition.

The Founders Cup is contested each winter season.
The match format is the same as regular matches however the match ends once a team reaches 8 frames won.
Please use the usual result sheets issued at the start of the season.
The away team breaks in frame 1 and breaks then alternate throughout the match.
The provision of food by the home venue is not mandatory in all cup matches.
Where 2 teams who use the same match table are drawn at home in the same round, then an alternative table, venue, or match date should be sought by the team drawn out later in the draw.
Founders Cup winners will be invited to enter the EPA Champion Of Champions national competition, with the finals staged at a Pontins selected by the EPA later in the year.
Entry fee will be paid by the League but subject to reimbursement should the team entered not fulfil their League obligations.

From 2021-22 season onwards, 1st and 2nd Round Founders Cup losers will be entered into the Silver Salver.
This new team knock out competition is designed to provide teams that eleiminate the Founders Cup in th early rounds more competitive pool and fill the winter diary with more fixtures.
It could also provide an "unfashionable" team with the chance to win a trophy.

In the 2021/22 season the dates for the semi finals and final will be announced at the end of the season. Some teams involved may be competing in other cup or play offs so to ease fixture congestion the end of season finals will be arranged once the competing teams are known.
