Stamford Indoor Bowls Club makes plans to start its summer leagues
Stamford Indoor Bowls Club, based in Exeter Gardens, has confirmed it plans to start its summer leagues from Monday, May 17.
But a virtual meeting of organisers has stressed that it needs a minimum of six teams per league to be viable and potential captains should form their teams and contact the league secretary John Holroyd without delay to confirm participation. New members can also register their interest.
Leagues for three-bowl triples will be staged over two-hour sessions on Monday and Friday evenings and Wednesday mornings, with a four-bowl pairs league starting at 1pm on Tuesdays. It is hoped a maximum of 12 teams per league will be generated.
Social roll-ups will still be held on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10am on May 17.
The club is still awaiting guidance from the game’s governing body, the English Indoor Bowling Association, as to regulations on social distancing, masks and sanitizing.
Players for all sessions should hold full 2020-21 membership alternatively a summer league subscription of £27.50 must be paid before the first session. Rink fees should be paid by debit card or by cash, preferably per team.
For further information and to register (teams and newcomers) contact league secretary John Holroyd by April 17 by email (email@example.com) or by telephone 07531 989500.
The Lincolnshire Indoor Bowls Association will be carrying over competition entries from the 2020/21 season to 2021/22.
New entries can be accepted, however, and should be sent to Bob Warters (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 30.
Unfortunately, the unfinished LIBA semi-finals and finals from the 2019/20 season, have had to be cancelled due to limitations on the time available.
The LIBA is planning to play men’s county league fixtures on a home and away basis from the start of the winter season.
The 2021/22 matches will by played in four rinks as opposed to five in the past and re-arranged into geographical divisions to limit travelling. Meals will depend on what facilities are available at each competing club.
Bowlers are reminded that EIBA national competition entries for 2021/22 will be carried over from 2020. New entries must be received direct to EIBA headquarters by Monday, June 7.
