Wellington Bowling Club
The first named (top) player on the draw list, the challenger, is responsible for contacting the second named player, the opponent, as soon as possible, and at least ten days before the play-by-date, to arrange a mutually convenient date for their match. The challenger must offer at least three dates to the opponent, all of which should be well in advance of the play-by-date and will book the agreed date in the RINK BOOKING folder to ensure a rink is available. Members are encouraged to arrange their matches as soon as possible.
The challenger will also be responsible for providing a marker for singles matches.
Where the play-by date is imminent it is suggested the opponent contacts the challenger to try to arrange a convenient date to play the match.
Failure to complete a match by the play-by-date may result in the challenger forfeiting the match; unless it can be proved that the fault lies with the opponent. The competition committee will consider each delayed match on a case by case basis. However, the least we would expect is for a booking for the match to be made in the RINK BOOKING folder.
All entrants in singles competitions are expected to act as markers.
Please observe the dress code.
Completed score cards should be placed in the box. Do not write on the draw sheets. A member of the competition committee will do that before placing in the publicity officer’s box.
Handicap- Where two players have a different handicap, calculate the difference and add that to the higher handicapped player’s score at the first end. For example, player A has a handicap of 3, player B 7, player B has 4 points added to the first end on the score card. Where both players’ handicaps are equal, they both start on zero.
