The Welsh Open in January, ARBBL in March, Cakebowl in June, Gert Bowl in July, The ACC in August and The Exiles Open in September are running the South West Tournament Championship (SWTC) again this year.


In short, by attending at least three of the six events you are entered in to Championship. Your top three results (with the exceptions below) will be scored and the top coach will win a trophy to be presented in September at the Exiles Open (or as soon as possible if not attending).

To qualify for the SWTC you must attend at least 3 of the 6 mentioned tournaments. Your three highest placing’s in the ones you attend will used for your score; however there must be at least two different races in those three. If you take Wood Elves (for example) for a third time your lowest score with them will drop off and not be considered, or if you take Skaven to all six only two will be considered for the SWTC score.

The coach who places first will receive 10 points, second 9 points, third 8 points and so on down to 10th place winning 1 point. Everyone else scores 0. Then every coach is awarded a bonus point for every full 10 players below them in the ranking. Finally every 0 is changed to 1.
This means everyone scores for playing and those that top the tables at larger events (inherently harder to do) earns a few more points to reflect the extra challenge.
For example, the top placed player in a 32-man tournament will gain 13 points (10+3), whereas the winner of 20-man tournament will gain 11 points (10+1).


Alongside this (and separately – looking at you Mr Glowworm ) is the SWTC Stunty Cup. The highest placed Stunty Coach will receive 10 points, second place 9 points third 8 points and so on down to 10th place winning 1 point. Everyone else scores 0. Then every coach is awarded a bonus point for every full 10 players below them in the ranking. Finally every 0 is changed to 1. The "two races" caveat on the main score is dropped in the case of Stunties. Qualifying Stunty teams are Goblins, Halflings, Ogres, Lizards with no Saurus and Underworld with no Skaven.
For example, a Stunty coach finishes 8th in a 20 man tournament where there are 5 stunty coaches. For the main list he earns 4 points (3+1). For the Stunty Cup he earns 11 points (10+1).

Any planned “one-day only” coaches (historically @ARBBL) will not be counted for the number of coaches in a tournament – coaches who just don’t show will.

After the points are counted at Exiles Open in September a trophy will be awarded to the highest placed Coach and Stunty Coach.

I hope all that makes sense to everyone, if it doesn't please ask here and one of the organisers will, hopefully, pop in and answer any queries.

Qualifying tournaments:
Welsh Open, 25th/26th January
ARBBL Open 2014, 1st/2nd March
Cakebowl 4, 7th/8th June
Gert Bowl IV – No Hope, 19th/20th July
Albion Coast Cup X, 23rd/24th August
Exiles Open 6(66): Dead Rising, 13th/14th September

Updated post-Cakebowl.

Unfortunately the Carnage Cup has had to cancel this year so the SWTC is back to 3 events from 6.


With 3 rounds still to play it's not to late to get involved and to be with a chance of winning.
