BUCKS SUPER LEAGUE


12 teams of 6 playing triples  -  3 woods  -  10 ends   -  6 mats  -  2 sessions


The League will run from October to March and games will take place once a month at Handy Cross Indoor Bowls Centre.


There will be two sessions:  Morning session from 9.30 to 12.30

         Afternoon session from 13.30 to 16.30


Teams will be divided into two divisions of 6, each team playing the other 5 in that division. The winners of each division will play each other in a final game to decide the overall winner.


Teams of 6 can be made up of players from any club or clubs and can change from one month to another. However, no player can play for two different teams during the course of the league season. Teams must be identified by a team name, which can be a club name or any other name. (i.e. Handy Cross Hornets, Bucks Bulls)


There will be a £3 per player rink fee per session, to cover the cost of hiring the venue from HX Bowls club.


Each team of 6 gets to play two games in the same session. This is to avoid the 4 hour parking limit at Handy Cross. Those teams in the morning session need to arrive for a 9.30 start. Those teams in the afternoon session need to arrive for the 13.30 start.


Failure to play any game in the series will incur a 6 point penalty against the offending team. (no penalty will be deducted in the event of extenuating circumstances. i.e. HX closed or inclement weather conditions)


All games will start on the whistle but will not be timed and will finish after 10 ends have been played. It is up to the individual teams to ensure they do not slow the games down.

Three points will be awarded to the winning teams and one point each for a draw.

At the end of the six games, the teams in each division with the overall highest number of points will be declared the winners of that division. The top two teams will play in a final to decide the outright winner. In the event of a draw, the total number of shots scored will decide the winner.


The final will be played in March, and The Bucks Super League Trophy will be awarded to the winning team with the Bucks Plate going to the runners up.

FINALS DAY + SPOON DRIVE



This is the proposed format for the Bucks Super League. Dates shown are not fixed, as the running of this competition is subject to the re-opening of the Handy Cross Indoor Bowls Club, their in house restrictions and their own timetable of events.

The current format is based on 12 teams of 6 players, but can be adjusted if there is sufficient support to warrant doing so. It may also be necessary to make further changes prior to commencement.

If there is little or no support, then alternative games will be organised during the Winter months.
