Media Center Image

We are pleased to announce that in addition to the four Regional Qualifying events for the 2019 Adult World Solo Drumming Championships in the UK, the RSPBA will also be holding an International Qualifying event at The Metro Cup event in Newark, New Jersey, USA, on 15th and 16th February 2019.

This event embraces the international context of Pipe Bands and offers an opportunity for players on the international scene to secure a qualifying place in the Semi-finals of the 2019 Adult World Solo Drumming Championship. We are delighted to be working with the organizing committee of The Metro Cup to present this opportunity for the very first time in the history of the event.

This builds on the success and continuing improvements to the World Solo Drumming Championship through consultation with the players, the adjudicators, and the Board of Directors over the past two years.

These qualifying competitions are all run under RSPBA rules, and are open to all adult competitors who meet the required criteria for the Adult World Solo Drumming 2019. There will be four qualifying places awarded at each event.
