In the Preliminary Round of the 2021 - 2022 Knock Out Cup, two Division 1 sides knocked out Premier opposition, one match went down to a final frame decider, and a Division 2 side made it through into the Round 1 draw.

Division 1 side We Love A Double knocked out Premier side New Zealand 'A' by winning 5-3 on the night. New Zealand 'A' were hampered by only having four players, but still a good performance from the lower league side to come back from 2-0 down to take the Premier scalp. Another Div 1 team knocking out a Premier team on the night were Honey Bee Stingerz, who were dominant from start to finish as they easily swept aside SP Bullets 5-1.

Two former Aristocrat teams, Nomads and The Brickslayers, saw their match go down to a final frame decider, as The Brickslayers came back from 3-2 and 4-3 down to win 5-4 and avoid the upset.

The only Division 2 side into hat for Saturday's Round 1 draw is Cotton Eyed Joes, who saw off divisional rivals The Ari Chicks 5-2, largely thanks to two wins for Ryan Chandler.

A couple more Division 1 sides made it through to Round 1 as The Vic Club did well to comfortably see off fellow Div 1 side Shootpool 5-1, while Kennedy GC and Shootpool Blues are also through, winning 5-1 and 5-2 respectively against Division 2 sides Cotton Wheel Krazies and Misfits.

Six more Premier sides also made safe passage through the Preliminary Round, including The Arigators coming back from an early scare at 3-0 down, to win 5-3 against Div 1 side Wonky Ari, and former champions New Zealand "B" also fighting back from an early 2-0 deficit to beat The Swanderers 5-2. Shootpool Sharks were in a close game at 3-3, before eventually seeing off Div 2 side New Dairy Maid 5-3 with a double win from Robert Mutch. Elsewhere, SP Blacks and Shootpool 'A' won comfortably 5-1 against Top John and The Feathers respectively, and two wins for Rory Sore helped The Roths win 5-2 against Washington Weavers
