Summary of events BENF-22-Schedule-FINAL-v.3


We have several Club Competitions in different formats so here’s a quick guide as to what they are and how they operate, which should help you decide what to enter.

  • “Championship” – This is a singles, open competition meaning any member can enter. There is one competiton for men and one for ladies. The winner of each match is the first to score 21 points. Winning the final will crown you Club Champion!
  • “Handicap” – Another singles competiton but where a less experienced/lower ranked bowler will start the game with a positive points score (handicap). The maximum number of shots any bowler can receive is 11 and the lowest is 0. If two bowlers meet in the draw and both have a handicap, the difference is used as the number of shots the lesser experienced/ranked bowler will start the game with. The winner is the first to score 21 points.
  • “2-Wood Singles” – A singles tournament that’s played with only 2 woods instead of the usual 4. The winner is the highest scorer after 21 ends.
  • “Pairs” – The higher ranking/experienced bowlers in the club are placed into one ‘hat’ and lesser experienced/ranked bowlers in another. Pairs are then drawn with one player being taken from each hat to form a team of two. That team will then play together for the entire competition. Each match is 21 ends long.
  • “Veterans” – A singles competiton only available to entrants over the age of 60 on the 1st May 2019. The winner is the first to score 21.
  • “Novice Singles” – Entrants can only be members who have not won a previous singles club competition before and who do not have a County Badge. The winner is the first to score 21 points.
  • “Mixed ‘Invitation’ Pairs” – A mixed pairs competition where a lady member ‘invites’ a male member to play with them in the competition. This format is a 21 end game.
  • “Singles 51-Up” – A singles competiton where the scoring is given as 3 points to nearest the jack, 2 points for second closest and 1 point for 3rd. The winner of the match scores 51 points first.  If both players reach 51 points on the last end, the winner is deemed to be the player with shot bowl.
