Club Competition Rules
Rounds of all competitions MUST be completed by the dates specified unless there are exceptional circumstances, such as bad weather/illness. In these cases the Competition Secretary must be advised of the problem and they will exercise their prerogative to agree to a later date.
Club shirts and greys should be worn by all players (including the marker). Markers must have at least 2 years experience of bowling in competitive games and cannot be directly related to the competitors.
The challenger(s) (i.e. the first named) is responsible for arranging the game, booking the rink and engaging the services of a marker, if required.
The challenger(s) shall offer three dates to the opposing player(s). Failure to do so will mean that the challenger(s) forfeits the game.
In the event that the opposing player(s) is unable to play on any of these dates offered and there being no other date acceptable to all players before the closing date of the round, the opposing player(s) shall forfeit the game – unless rule 1 is invoked.
Any player(s) who fails to arrive 20 minutes before the start time arranged shall be deemed to be the loser.
Pairs competitions. Once a pair has played in a round there can be no substitution of an individual player. However, prior to your first game of the competition should a player be unable to take part, then a substitute can be made, providing the Competition Secretary agrees to this and the substitute is not already involved in the competition.
It is important when arranging to play any competition, both Internal and External, that you check the following:
1. There are rinks available by consulting the rink diary (held in the Club House)
2. The green is not scheduled to undergo any form of maintenance
3. You record your reservation with the time, date, number of rinks and your name.
4. This is extremely important for External games.
