This competition is an individual knockout in which each match is 21 up with no handicaps apart from non-Home registered players who play off 2. It is open to any team member, men and ladies, of affiliated teams and is usually played in August. The trophy is presented by the mayor of Denbigh. It was first played for in 1991 at Denbigh Bowling Club, attracting over 50 entrants, and was won by Phil Vickers of Mochdre park. Glyndwr Senior Merit 2018 played at Mochdre Park resulted in 12 entries.

Steve beat his wife and the weather 22-11 to win the Glyndwr Senior Merit for the third time after winning it in 2012 and 2016. Thanks once again to Mochdre Park BC for hosting the competition.
Exclusively for Ladies, this competition has the same format as above. This was first played for in 2010 when the winner was Pauline Jackson of Trefnant, the trophy being presented by Mrs Brenda Jones(from the Wrexham area) of the WCGBA. The winner in 2016 was Jenny Hadwin, also of Trefnant. Note that Glyndwr is the only area to hold a Ladies Merit. The 2018 competition was played at Rhyl BC on Sunday August 12th at 12pm. There were 10 entries and the four from Trefnant almost all reached the last stages, thwarted by Bev Worseley-Taylor of Prestatyn Highbury. The semi-finals then were Jenny Hadwin v Brenda Newall both of Trefnant, and Bev v Linda Kirkham of Trefnant. Jenny and Bev were successful setting up an exciting final in which Jenny eventually pulled away to win for the third time in succession.
Unfortunately this competition has not been held for the last four years due to lack of entrants. It is usually played in the evening when children return from holidays in early September. This is an event the Association is keen to promote so we will be looking to ensure it returns to our schedule.
