2018-2019 Pottage Cup Winners :: Gordon Clarke and John Pearson
The Pottage Cup is the HIWCBA major pairs championship.
Any Affiliated Club may run one heat and any HIWCBA EBU member may compete in a heat at any participating club. Pairs with a score of 50% or more qualify for the semi-final.
The leading 16 pairs then compete in the final in an all-play-all format.
Green Points are awarded to all who qualify for the final, (the scale is dependent on number of semi-finalists).
