NATIONS VETERANS CUP 2019
After months of planning, a lot of hard work with not a little worry and chewed nails, the Nations Veterans Cup is coming to the Club on 28 & 29 June 2019.
Little did the four Monkstone players (Roger Griffin, Tony Smith, Bernard & Vickie Adshead) who represented Wales in last year’s competition in Denmark suspect that the following year we would be hosting the event in Wales. A series of conversations with Henrik Toft of the Danish Federation led to an invitation to the WPA to stage the 2019 edition. Monkstone PC agreed to underwrite the event and on that basis the WPA accepted the invitation.
The competition was inaugurated by the Danish Federation a few years ago and has been held there every year up to 2018. It was conceived as an invitational, friendly, veterans (+55 ) competition for the smaller federations and associations. This year we welcome teams representing Holland, Jersey, Norway, Scotland, Denmark and of course Wales.
The Club is immensely proud to be hosting what is believed to be the first international competition of its kind to be held in Wales. Let’s hope that the weather is kind to us and that we have a friendly but hard fought competition.
