Social bowls

Social bowls are a great way to practice your bowling skills and to meet other members. Helpful advice is always available if requested, as we can always learn and improve.

Monday afternoon mix and match roll-up – commences Mon 9th May.

This is a roll-up but each Monday’s individual scores are kept for the season. So depending on how many turn up and register by 2pm (2.15 start) – equal teams (as far as possible) are created by drawing a coloured numbered disc (colour is team, number is rink and team position) from the organiser’s bag. There are four ends and team scores are noted on individual score cards (see below). At the end of four ends, you draw another disc to join a different team/rink/position. Then play another four ends and so on until you have played 16 ends and been in 4 teams. This format gives everyone the opportunity and experience of playing in different team positions (skip, lead, etc). Your Monday individual total is then given to the organiser who keeps a tally for the whole season. At the end of the season – your best three Monday scores are totalled to find a winner.

Tuesday night triples – commences Tues 10th May

Club members will have to sign up for this friendly league prior to its start – beginning of June. The organiser will allocate people to teams based on their ability so as to create equally strong teams. There are usually 6 team members in each triples team and a rota is created so that each team member is given an equal number of matches (see below). The teams play each other in a round-robin format throughout the season and the winner is the team with the highest combined score.

Friday evening roll-up – commences Friday 6th May

The organiser will collect names for those registering by 5.45pm (6pm start). Depending on how many turn up, the organiser will determine how many teams can be formed. The organiser will then draw the individual names from a bag to create a team and position – e.g. if there are three people in each team, then the first three names drawn will play in the first team, next three names drawn will play in the second team against team one, and so on. There are usually 16 ends and you stay in the same team. The winning team is the highest total score for the 16 ends. This is followed by a Club Night.

Opening Club Drive – Sunday 24th April
