President’s Cup Winners

President's Cup
President’s Cup

This competition is open to NEFRA members only. Points are gained at UK championship shows as follows:

First – 3 points, Second – 2 points, CC – 2 points, ResCC – 1 point, Best Puppy – 1 point, BOB – 3 points

The cup was purchased at auction. It was made in Sheffield in 1909 and was a 60oz silver cup originally commissioned by Hartlepool Snooker Club.  In 1937, it became a hospice cup for donations.  It was then refurbished with a new centrepiece.

Important change for the 2023 show season

All classes scheduled at championship shows throughout the year now score points towards the Presidents Cup.

Points are collated by NEFRA during the show year and the trophy is awarded at the Annual General Meeting.
