At the Board of Directors meeting on Saturday 24th July 2021 the Board ratified the Music Board proposals to award Championship titles to the Adult World Solo Drumming Championship pre-qualification events for 2022 and beyond.

Following extensive consultation over several years with the Adult Competitors, Adjudicators, Directors and Sponsors, the event has grown and developed. Positive submissions and assistance by all involved worldwide has enabled the RSPBA. World Solo Drumming Championships to positively evolve to its current form.

This next stage of evolution is to create a competition circuit for qualification to the World Solo Drumming Championship. It is hoped that the qualification circuit will continue to evolve and be extended to further events in the coming years both in the U.K. and Internationally. Also, at a date to be agreed, the World Solo Drumming Championship will be a semi-finals and finals competition without the need for the current morning adult qualifier.

The Championship titled qualification events may be hosted by any of the RSPBA Branches or affiliated organisations. All applications to host future events should be submitted in writing to RSPBA H.Q.

The titles and the current host branches are listed below.

The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association, Scottish Solo Drumming Championship
Current host; Lothian & Borders Branch.

The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association, British Solo Drumming Championship
Current host; Glasgow & West of Scotland Branch.

The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association, United Kingdom Solo Drumming Championship

The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association, European Solo Drumming Championship
Current host Dundee Perth & Angus Branch/ Kingdom Thistle.

The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association, Intercontinental Solo Drumming Championship

  2. Contests to be adjudicated by 2 RSPBA approved Drumming Adjudicators.
  3. Competitors must Submit two March, Strathspey and Reel sets, each tune minimum of four parts.
  4. The set to be played will be drawn on the line by the RSPBA Director responsible for the event.
