Cheltenham Whaddon Bowls Club

GSMBA Winter & Seniors Leagues

Winter League

The GSMBA Winter League is played on two mats and each match involves a minimum of 8 players from each club, formed into 2 rinks of 4 (2 woods per player). Dress requirements are grey trousers/skirts and either white or official Club shirts. A game of 10 ends 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 higher shot total for the four games, ie. 10 points per match.

Whaddon Wonders have a team in Division 3 of this league and the table below shows our fixtures and results. If you want to know how we are getting on in the League, the GSMBA publishes the current table on its website.

Seniors League

The Seniors League is for players over the age of 60: it is slightly more informal than the Winter League, with no clothing requirement (other than regulation bowling shoes) and is played on a single mat. A match consists of 2 games of 10 ends between 2 teams of 4 players from each club, with an interval for refreshments between games. Two points are awarded for each game with 2 bonus points for the team, which records the higher shot total over the 2 games, for a total of 6 points.

We have one team in Division 2 of this League and you can see our fixtures and results in the table below. Again the GSMBA publishes a current league table on its website, if you are interested in how successful (or otherwise) we are.

Vale League

We have also entered a new friendly league with a very different format, which has begun this year as a trial. In this league each team will play a singles, pairs, triples and rink on two mats. The single and rink play first and after a break the pair and triple complete the match. This means you need at least 5 players to make a team. Scoring is based on total shots scored in the match, but league position will be decided somewhat unusually by the highest shot difference.  The fixture list can be seen in the table below and results will be posted after each game.
