Walling Competitions

dswa@50.  As part of our anniversary celebrations we are holding a national walling competition on Sunday 20 May 2018 near Kirkby Lonsdale.  There is something for everyone with a range of classes for wallers at all levels, live music, BBQ and much, much more.  Further details will be posted here in due course but please see here for more information and do contact the office if you are interested in sponsoring any part of the event.

Walling competitions take place at different times of the year throughout the country. Some of the competitions have been running for many years and are almost legendary amongst the walling fraternity. The following list gives a flavour of the geographical spread of competitions.   Further details can be obtained from the relevant organisers. 

Some DSWA branches also organise competitions and details are given in the appropriate branch programmes.

If you know of other competitions that are not listed above, please let us have the contact details so we can help promote them too.
