2021-22 Competition

The 2021-22 competition was held on 10 September 2022 at the Larruperz Centre. The 12 entrants were split into four round robin groups with the top two from each group progressing to the quarter-finals. Two of the four semi-finalists were Ross and only Joe Loveys (Gorsley Chapel) was a previous winner. Joe was to progress no further, however, as he suffered defeat to Dave Watkins (Ross). In the other semi-final John Mills (Woolhope) defeated Peter Wright (Ross). In the final, John came out on top to secure his first county singles title with a 10-5 victory whilst Peter pipped Joe in a tight play-off for third place.
