Diary Dates

Now that the League’s fixtures have gone live, the finalised 2024 Competition and Team KO dates are now available on this website.

They have been emailed to the secretaries of all 27 member clubs with entry deadlines and fees, plus venues if known at this stage.

Ahead of the start of the new playing season, all bowlers interested in learning about the rules of the game are encouraged to attend a special free seminar.

David Williams, the chief of the British Crown Green Referees Society, will be the man in the spotlight on Tuesday, 26th March, starting at 7pm at Tilstock BC, near Whitchurch (SY13 3JL).

Delighted Shropshire Referees Society secretary Louise Cotton said: “This is a great opportunity for club captains, officials and those interested in being a referee to update their knowledge and ask questions from the expert.”

 “It’s aimed at those wishing to continue to sit their referee exams or for club officials/captains that would like the opportunity to refresh their current knowledge.

“David is an expert who will help people to understand the correct rules and provide greater confidence when you have rule issues during a league game.

“This is likely to be a popular event so to ensure we are aware of numbers expected, please can you let myself ([email protected]) know the names of those attending and which bowling club they are representing by March 21.”

Looking further ahead to the League’s April meeting, the plan at this stage is to open the meeting to all team captains to take them through all the new rules passed at the AGM in January.
