Wednesday Evening Club Night League 2020 Rules
Club Night will start on the 29th April and run for eighteen weeks until and including the 2nd September 2020. With exception of 1st July which is our Gala Day

Due to its success last year we plan to maintain exactly the same playing format, The league table will change to the format as used in the Brentwood and Basildon league's ie: 2 points for a win, 1 point each for a draw, and the winner will be an average of the points scored per games played and if still equal the highest average shot difference will be the winner.

Wishing you all a very enjoyable season

As players arrive, their names are placed into a hat from 5:45 pm

Prior to the actual start, 3 names are drawn no later than 5.55 pm from the hat. (These are the rink 1 home team).

Then a further 3 names are drawn from the hat. (These are the rink 1 away team). & so on…

The 3 selected players, must decide between themselves, who plays Lead, No.2 and Skip.

Each Rink, is given one score card, players must record all their names in full.

This is repeated until the 6 rinks are completed or names are exhausted.
(Pairs, could be the last selection, if there are insufficient names to make Trips, but not singles).

The matches are played to club rules, one score card is completed for and by each rink.

Matches start at 6 pm prompt and are to be, a maximum of 14 ends, or 8 pm finish, whichever comes first.

(Match adjudicator’s decision is final, for all situations, e.g. darkness or rain etc.)

At the end of the match, ensure the score cards are passed to an adjudicator.

(This is to ensure your shot wins/difference are recorded to achieve a season winner).
(He keeps a list of names of all the players and tots up their total numbers of shot difference, the winning team players, will each receive the same total number of shot difference achieved for the game. Which are then added to his/her names running total by the adjudicator, no runners up!!

This is accumulated during the season and the overall winner is the one holding the most winning shots at the season end. (If a runner up etc. this will be decided by the Bowls Club Committee).
Periodic Charts should be made available, so members can check their progress.

Advantages of this Club Night System…
Everyone gets a game, and would hopefully rarely play in the same team.
Members or leaders, are not looking for someone to make up a team.
Everyone has a chance of winning overall, regardless of ability.
The winner is not necessarily from those playing the most game's.
Less preparation prior to each Club Night, saves phone calls etc.

Following the matches tea etc. will be available in the clubhouse. The cost of the game is £1.00 for each player
There will be no tea rota, all players are expected to join in, to prepare, serve and clean up afterwards. We need to operate this together to ensure all our enjoyment, no excuses please (But tea, biscuits etc. will be available for this,
