25/6/17 New league Rules for the 2017/18 season now available to download. Printed copies will be made available soon for those without the facility to download.

1/6/17 There have been quite a few comments posted on the Forum and discussed elsewhere regarding the new proposed fixed end Leagues. The League Secretary and the General Committee would like to explain the reasons for considering this change.

Firstly, there have been a number of complaints made regarding deliberate slowing of play when approaching the 2 hour mark in order to maintain a winning position.

Secondly, it is considered fairer that all teams play the same number of ends in League matches because the overall League result depends not only on League points attained but also on shot difference to determine the final positions.

The number of ends to be played reflects information of past ends played in the Leagues and is believed to be fair to all team players so that matches should be able to be completed within 2 hours.

However, due to the concerns of some members, it has been decided to go ahead with the new Fixed End League Rules on a trial basis up to the Christmas break. In the week before the end of the trial period, all League players will be given questionnaires in which they can express their opinions. The General Committee will then decide whether to continue with the new League format for the remainder of the season or revert back to timed matches.

The revised League Rules will be available on the League notice board and to download from this website before the start of the 2017/18 season.

 

6/5/17 The Awards Presentation will now take place on Friday evening the 22nd September 2017. Following the presentations you will have the opportunity to play a competitive match of skittles as the Club has hired an alley for the evening. Further details to come. Start time 7.00pm.
