The  qualifying round for the Doubles Merit will take place on 14th August.  Entry fee is £5.00 per pair and, as with the Individual Merit, all entry fees will be paid out in prize money.  I will be at Penn Bowling Club on Thursday 27th June between 10.00 and 12.00 to collect entry fees for anyone not paying by Bank Transfer.  Please ensure that either Nick or myself have details of your entry if you do pay through the bank.

 

Mon 17th Jun

Further to a recent incident concerning the use of mobile phones whilst playing matches and the behaviour between players, I remind you of the following rule:

Rule 10.1:

 

Electronic devices e.g., mobile phones, pagers, smart watches etc, in active mode are not allowed on the green. Should a player fail to comply, that player shall forfeit the game.  The offender(s) to receive no further score and the opponent(s) to receive the maximum score. 

As discussed at our A.G.M. the age group for our league means that sometimes we must take urgent calls, which may come through during a match.  If a player is expecting an urgent call, they should get agreement with their opponent to leave the green during play and inform both captains.  

The phone should be handed to a nominated representative off the green.  When the call comes through, the player must leave the green prior to accepting the call.

The league does not condone any form of abusive or bullying behaviour during play which can affect all players.  We all want to enjoy our matches without any distractions from people off the green.

 

Where there are any disputes on the green, unless either player requests intervention by the captains, no person, other than the opponent, should be involved until the completion of the game.
