Minutes of meetings

Welcome to the web site of the South Manchester Veterans Bowling Association.

We exist to promote Crown Green Bowling,

Our area covers South Manchester, Droylsden, Sale, Stockport, Stretford and Wythenshaw.

See the green finder for a list of clubs and links to maps showing where they are.

We run a mixed league for teams playing on Monday & Friday afternoon, for players over 55.

Currently we have two divisions on a Monday and one on a Friday, eight players per team.

The leagues are decided on aggregate points scored.

We also run knock-out cup competitions for each division, Monday division 1 the Coronation Cup division 2 J Arnett Cup and Friday division 1 the Nuttall Cup.

An individual Merit competition and a pairs competition.

Good Luck, Have a great afternoon to all competing teams, George

The above details are correct as the 1st October.

Refeshments ie tea and biscuit a charge of 20p under league rules is allowed, but I suggest that a small football card would off set the cost better.
