The CPA exists to represent the world's competitive solo piping community.
Graded competition is an essential function of the CPA and takes place via a 3-tier format. This series of competitions sets out a platform on which pipers can compete against competitors of similar ability and track records at A, B and C grade levels.
These competitions are:
There will be a league scoring system for each grade and points will be awarded for placings. An overall winner of each grade will be awarded at the end of the year and a promotion/relegation system will be followed.
We are extremely grateful for the support of the Games' committees at these events for their agreement to establish these competitions. We are also extremely grateful to Glenfiddich who continue to sponsor the B and C grade events at the Duncan Johnstone, Blair Atholl, Rosneath, Inveraray and Blairgowrie.
