MARLDON MIXED FOURS OPEN BOWLS TOURNAMENT - SUNDAY 11th AUGUST 2024

Marldon Bowls Club will again be holding our annual tournament on the above date with first game starting at 9.30 am. We hope that you will be able to enter. The teams will be made up of two ladies and two men. Each team will play three games on a round robin basis. The Tournament consists of 24 teams. Rules will be shown on the Programme given to each Team Leader on arrival.

PRIZES

FIRST PRIZE - £200 SECOND PRIZE - £120 THIRD PRIZE - £72

Entry fee will again be £54 per team (this will include lunch and dessert)

Unfortunately, due to sickness etc., of regular entrants this year, we still have a couple of spaces left so if you are interested or have any questions about the Tournament, then please email Anne Clarke ([email protected]) for an entry form or further details a.s.a.p. to avoid disappointment.

We will be using an on line system called Rink Diary this season to select games, instead of using the paper 'availability' sheets in the captains office.

We will use both systems for a while, until everyone has become familiar with the new system, for which everyone will receive training as required.

Click here to download our first Rink Diary training presentation, which advises you how to create an account and how to view and put your name down for games.

If the above presentation does not run properly on your device, (You may need a Powerpoint viewer), then here is an alternative Rink Diary - pdf version that you should be able to view on most devices.

There will be a link to the Rink Diary from our fixtures pages or it can be accessed directly at www.marldon.rinkdiary.co.uk. You must register before you can use it.

We played a number of friendly games against touring teams last season and we hope they all enjoyed their visit to Marldon and will come again in the future.

ATTENTION NON BOWLERS:

Our weekly 'Try bowls' sessions and coaching sessions went well last season and we recruited a number of new bowlers for the club and we are repeating this again this season.

For anyone who has never played bowls before, the weekly "try bowls" sessions will run on Sunday Mornings from April 28th 2024. The sessions start at 10am and all you need are flat bottomed shoes (no heels as they damage the grass), all other kit can be loaned while you try out the game. If you are interested, please contact Ray, details are on our Contacts Page, or go to our Membership page for more info. You probably won't be alone as a number of people usually come along to try it out and a few members usually come along to say hello.

If you are a club interested in playing a game at Marldon this year (or next), please contact our Fixture Secretary (he already has a lot of this year's fixtures booked!) using the details on the "Contact us" page.

Members should note that the Rink Diary system is now live for nominating yourself for games, a team selection book will be kept in the Captains' office at the club for the first part of the season while members get used to the new on line booking system so members should put their names down in book if they cannot access the on-line system. Training sessions are available to all members.

Remember: You must register first, and wait for a confirmation email, before you can log on and put your name down for games.

You can't get selected if your name isn't on the system or in the book!
