Weston and District Over 60's League - 2021
In these difficult times it has been decided that we will commence the league with effect from 19th April 2021, but will be subject to the following changes/alterations.
Currently car sharing is not permitted and this will depend upon any change in government policy and whether Bowls England make an decisions on this situation. Unless there is some change there may be a necessity on the part of clubs to reschedule matches.
Rules of play.
The rule of 6 still applies and therefore we will only be able to play with 4 triples per match.
Despite the fact that we may be able to play with six rinks from June, however the whole of the league season will be as a four rink of triples match. Thus, we will have continuity throughout the season.
From June clubs will be able to have an additional two friendly rinks to fill up the greens.
As dressing rooms should remain closed for the time being, then the dress for playing should be GREYS and reverting to WHITES from a date in June.
Promotion and relegation will still apply.
Points per Match
At present, we award 2 points per winning rink and 8 points for a win.
There will still be 2 points per winning rink but the winning points will be an allocation of 4 points. This would continue the current situation whereby a team can lose the majority of rinks but still win the match. This method of scoring will be applied throughout the season.
Knock Out Cup
The preliminary rounds can be played subject to travel being permitted. There will therefore be some flexibility to enable all games to be played.
Each round up to the semi-finals to be of 4 rinks of triples. The Semi-finals and Final to be played as 6 rinks of triples. The final will be played at Portishead RBL on Thursday, 16th September 2021 commencing at 2.30 p.m.
