BOWLS: Grantham outdoor association seeks bowlers’ views

Have your say

GRANTHAM and District Bowls Association is seeking the views of players in relation to how they would like the format of games next season.

Over the 2012 season, a different format for the Friday League games was introduced due to the decrease in the number of people playing committedly outdoors.

Player numbers were reduced 10 instead of 12, and to maximise the use of each green, games were played with rinks of three players with two woods, and two rinks of two players with three woods, all playing 21ends.

Although the format worked, it is understood that some players were not happy with it, and so the Association is looking for alternative suggestions.

Players’ views are urgently required before the end of October, so that any proposals can be discussed in readiness for the annual meeting.

E-mail your ideas to Jenny Geeson at or telephone her on 01476 550371. Alternatively, write to her at 2 Overgate Road, Swayfield, or contact your own club secretary.
