Cheltenham Whaddon Bowls Club

GSMBA Winter & Seniors Leagues

This year we have entered a team in both the Winter and Seniors Leagues run by the Gloucestershire Short Mat Bowling Association (GSMBA). 

In the Winter League each match involves 8 players from each club, who form 2 teams each of 4 players. A game is played on each mat and after an interval (usually for refreshments) the two home teams swap mats and another 2 games take place. Two points are awarded for each of the 4 games and a further 2 points for the club with the highest shot total for the four games, ie. 10 points per match. The full rules and fixtures are available on the GSMBA web site, All our fixtures have been included on the Club's own Short Mat Fixture List.

In the Seniors League each match involves a team of 4 players and the 2 teams play a 10 end game and after an interval (usually for refreshments) they play another game. Two points are awarded to the winner of each game (1 each for a draw) and 2 bonus points for the best overall shots ie.a total of 6 points per match. This is a more informal league with no fixed dress code other than regulation shoes. Again the full rules and fixtures are published on the GSMBA website and all of Whaddon's matches are listed on our own fixture list.

Anyone who wants to play in these matches (and we already have quite few names, but more would be very welcome) must be registered with the GSMBA, so if you would like a game, please let Andy Todd or Jane Hawkes know, so that we can put your name on our list. The first scheduled game is on 25 October 2017.
