NEW BOLTON CHALLENGE CUP COMPETITION FOR 2022/23 SEASON

29th August 2022

 Members may already know that Val Phillippe has moved away at the end of last season from running the ever popular "BOLTON CUP" singles league competition league format for all members.

Since Val’s departure the competition has undergone a significant change in the way it is played which has relied on a major investment by the club to enable the new league to be incorporated into our Bowlr computer-based league system.

This league format is unique to our club, having been specially developed for us by the technical team at Bowlr in Poole, who are the major supplier of Bowls Club Management Technology.

A complete set of the “New” rules that are required to run this exciting NEW league format will be placed on our web site, together with the Noticeboard and reception within the club during September. 

 ANYBODY WISHING TO ENTER THIS LEAGUE FOR THE COMING WINTER SEASON THAT WILL START AT THE BEGINNING OF OCTOBER SHOULD CONTACT BOB ATKINS OR BARRY WARD AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND “NO LATER” THAN 19TH SEPTEMEBER TO BE INCLUDED AT THE START OF THIS FORTH COMING WINTER SEASON.

ENTRY AFTER THIS DATE WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED UNTIL THE NEXT LEAGUE PERIOD WHICH WILL BE TWO MONTHS AWAY.     

RINK CARPET REPLACEMENT UPDATE

21st August 2022

Board Statement

 Rink Carpet Replacement

 

The current carpet has served us well, and for the past 10 years we have been bowling on the reverse side since it was turned over during the club’s major revamp in 2012.

We are now at the stage where the seams may not withstand future stretches, and in some areas, we have fracturing where the carpet is very thin, and could split at any time.

The Board have taken the decision to replace the carpet including the underlay and ditch infills at a cost of some £56,000. the work will be carried in April 2023.
