Open Triples (New Date) - Due to a number of clubs struggling to play all of their in-house County Competitions before Friday 11th June deadline, the 1st knockout round has now been moved 2 weeks and will now take place on Wednesday 30th June.

Those clubs who are carrying one or two  competitions past the deadline, I ask that you make every effort to play off any remaining games ASAP.

The draw for the knockout rounds will still take place on Saturday 12th June, so can all clubs send their entries in before this date.

COUNTY COMPETITIONS 2021

ENTRIES ARE NOW BEING TAKEN FOR THE 2021 COUNTY COMPETITIONS WITH A CLOSING DATE OF FRIDAY 7TH MAY.  ENTRY FORMS HAVE BEEN SENT TO YOUR CLUB'S EXECUTIVE MEMBER AND MUST BE RETURNED TO THE COUNTY COMPETITION SECRETARY ALONG WITH THE ENTRY FEES ON OR BEFORE THIS DATE.

EACH CLUBS ENTRIES ARE TO BE PLAYED OFF IN-HOUSE TO A WINNER (BEFORE FRIDAY 11TH JUNE) WITH THE WINNER GOING THROUGH TO THE OPEN DRAW WHICH WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY 21ST JUNE. EACH CLUB CAN PLAY THEIR COMPETITIONS HOW THEY PLEASE, BUT EACH COMPETITION WILL BE PLAYED IN THE USUAL WAY AT THE KNOCKOUT STAGES (21-UP FOR BOTH SINGLES, 21 ENDS FOR THE OPEN PAIRS AND OPEN RINKS, AND 18 ENDS FOR THE OPEN TRIPLES AND SENIOR RINKS, SENIOR TRIPLES AND SENIOR PAIRS).

WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE WBA TO RELEASE THEIR FIXTURE CALANDER, BUT WE HAVE PROVISIONALLY PENCILLED IN COUNTY FINALS FOR FRIDAY 6TH AND SATURDAY 7TH AUGUST, BUT THIS COULD CHANGE.

LEAGUE

DUE TO COVID, LLANSANTFFRAID, CARNO, MAESYDRE AND ABDEDYFI HAVE DECIDED NOT TO TAKE PART IN MONTGOMERYSHIRE COMPETITIONS THIS YEAR, BUT TO PLAY THEIR BOWLS INTERNALLY.  WE WISH THEM ALL WELL IN THEIR IN-HOUSE LEAGUES AND IN-HOUSE COMPETITIONS AND WILL WELCOME THEM ALL BACK TO COMPETITIVE BOWLS IN 2022.

WITH CURRENT RESTICTIONS IN PLACE, THE LEAGUE WILL BE PLAYED DIFFERENTLY JUST FOR THIS YEAR.  TO MINIMISE THE AMOUNT OF TRAVELLING AND WITH PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF ONE ANOTHERS BUBBLES UNABLE TO TRAVEL IN THE SAME VEHICLE AT PRESENT, THE LEAGUE WILL BE SPLIT INTO 2 SECTIONS (EAST AND WEST) WITH EACH TEAM PLAYING 2 RINKS AT HOME AND 2 RINKS AWAY ON THE SAME EVENING.  THE SAME POINT STRUCTURE WILL BE USED AS NORMAL WITH EACH WINNING RINK WORTH 1 POINT OR 0.5 POINTS FOR A DRAW BUT THE 2 RINKS SCORES COMBINED WILL BE WORTH 1.5 POINTS (RATHER THAN THE USUAL 3 POINTS).

EAST - WELSHPOOL, BERRIEW, MONTGOMERY, KERRY, LLANFAIR.

WEST - MACHYNLLETH, MAGLONA, LLANIDLOES, NEWTOWN.

THE WINNERS OF EACH SECTION WILL THEN PLAY-OFF TO DETERMINE A WINNER.  ONCE AGAIN WE ARE WAITING ON THE WBA TO RELEASE THEIR CALANDER BUT WE HOPE TO BEGIN THIS LEAGUE FORMAT EARLY JUNE WHERE HOPEFULLY RESTRICTIONS ON CAR SHARING HAVE BEEN RELAXED.  THE LEAGUE WOULD ONLY BE PLAYED OVER A 5 WEEK PERIOD, BUT THIS IS LOOKED AS A "SOMETHING BETTER THAN NOTHING" SCENARIO.  HOPEFULLY WE WILL BACK TO NORMAL NEXT YEAR WITH 2 DIVISIONS PLAYED OVER A 14 WEEK SCHEDUE.

PLEASE KEEP AN EYE OUT ON THE WEBSITE FOR UPDATES OVER THE COMING WEEKS.
