This event is new to our calendar and is an attempt to fill the gap between Social Sunday/Tuesday events and League Matches. Our League teams are now all up and running with successful wins for all teams. Our Socials are also proving successful and cater for those new to bowls and those who want to play in fun competitions without the pressure of match play. There has now appeared a gap between these two options for those who want to play full matches as in the League games but are not yet ready for the challenges of League matches, hence the trialling of the Friday Match Night.
The initial plan for Friday night is for members to play a singles match using the same format as for League matches. This will be over four weeks and the highest total individual score over the period will win the monthly cup. There is no need to commit to playing every week as for our Leagues, just turn up and play on any Friday.
If this is successful those playing will give the club a pool of match ready players who could be ready to join the League teams next season. If this pool is large enough we could look at forming an A and B teams for some of our Leagues. This could resolve the issue of no team places available for everyone wanting to join League teams.
The Mayor will be attending on Sunday 29th May so it would be great to see as many of you as possible at both events.
