Included are club represented, team player names, and game scores.

This will continue each Wednesday for the travelling club until they are unsuccessful in the defence of the cup. In this case, the host club will travel the next Wednesday. The challenge is so popular that clubs must express their intention to challenge almost a year ahead of time.  When it first started 21 ends were played; then 18 ends, and now we play 14 ends.
