Born Again?

It’s Saturday and the afternoons will be soon be a lot warmer . . . and YOU could be playing bowls in a unique division the League is hoping to re-boot in 2024.

Matches in the Saturday Division are four singles-two doubles and that means that a minimum of just 4 bowlers is required to fulfil fixtures that start at 2pm.

This division has been in cold storage since the 2019 campaign due to the pandemic, but already 6 potential teams from 5 clubs – Allscott Heath, Charlton, Donnington Wood, Wrockwardine Wood and Worfield – have expressed an interest in re-launching it.

Now the big questions for League officers are can we get to 8 teams? And will we have lift-off again come May?

The divisional rules are already in place – and available to see on this site under Admin and the League Rules – and a final decision on whether the division gets re-born will be made at the League’s April meeting on Tuesday the 2nd.

So if you have enough bowlers at your club interested in some Saturday afternoon action, please contact your club secretary and get them to express an interest to either fixture secretary John Palmer or general secretary Malcolm Fletcher.
