In view of continuing restrictions on competitive sport, we have reluctantly cancelled the 2020 season.

All being well we will meet again for an AGM in November to plan the 2021 season.

Playing Twice

Following discussion at the pre-season meeting, the rules have been changed to allow one player to play a second time in matches where their team is short of players.

Captains should note that the player to play again must be the one from the first four on the match sheet who has the "worst score". This may be a loser with the lowest score. If all the first four won, then it is the one who conceded most chalks.

Also please note the following points:

  • If there are joint worst scores in the first four then their captain may choose amongst them.
  • The player playing again should be shown with (2) after their name. In direct entry, just select the same name twice - you will be prompted to confirm this action and the (2) marker will be added automatically. The score in the second game does not count towards the player's average.
  • Only one player can play again on each team. Further absences to be recorded as 21-0 walkovers.
  • If (all of) the player(s) with the worst score do not wish to play again then a 21-0 walkover to be recorded.
  • The opponent of the player playing again may have a four-end roll-up.
  • Only one player in gthe whole match can play again this player coming from the team with fewer players available. If both teams have the same number of players, neither of them can nominate a player to play again.

The use of this will be reviewed at the next AGM.

Eric Dale pairs

The Eric Dale pairs competition was due to be held on Saturday 8 June. It is planned for a maximum entry of 16 pairs. We had received six entries by the closing date, and is spite of a last-minute appeal there have been no further entries.

Therefore the competition will not take place this year.
