Short Mat Leagues 2018-19

This year's Winter Short Mat Leagues will begin on Friday 28 September 2018: 20 teams have entered the Pairs League on Friday evenings and there are 10 teams in the Triples League, which will take place on Wednesday evenings. A full fixture list is now available and all players should by now have received a fixture list for their team.

Fewer teams have entered this year, so to allow for promotion and changes in teams Pairs Div 1 will have 11 teams, with 9 teams in Div 2. This means there are more spare dates available, if you have to rearrange a game, and leaves March mostly free for the Knockout competitions.

The club has again entered teams in the GSMBA Winter and Senior Leagues, which are played in a rink format. We have also entered the newly formed Vale League, in which the teams will play one single, one pairs, one triples and a rink over two sessions, which means a minimum of 5 players. Fixtures have now been arranged and have been published on the league page and are included in the main fixture list. These games give you the chance to play at some new places and are always friendly occasions, despite the competitive element.  So if you enjoy Short Mat bowling, please think about putting your name down to play: you need to be registered, so the earlier you do this the better.


Entries as at 21 November 2018. Closing date is Friday 07 December 2018. Add your name(s) to notice in clubhouse and pay your entry fee (50p per player, per competition), if you want to be included in the draw.
