Association Matches & Other Fixtures

The programme for Outdoor matches in the 2021 season has been reduced as a consequence of the impact of the pandemic.   It is hoped that matches can be played as planned but adjustments to conform to any Bowls England advice on social distancing may need to be made during the season.  We hope that by the autumn the Indoor programme will be near normal.

The Outdoor programme does not include dates for Executive Meetings that are usually held at 7.30 pm on the last Wednesday of each month but are currently suspended.  We expect them to restart later in the summer.

Players are requested to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the starting time for all matches and to report to the Match Officer/President upon arrival.

The St. Albans & District Bowling Association wishes to thank the Officers and Executive Committees of all host Clubs for the use of their facilities

Also appreciative thanks to all the members of these Clubs who help to make our visits to their greens such pleasant and memorable occasions.

Selection

Selection for matches takes place at Executive Meetings held monthly, usually on the last Wednesday of each month.  Selection sheets for each match are published at least a month in advance to all Delegates.

All members of Affiliated Clubs are entitled to be considered for selection for all Association Matches, including Shield Matches and the District rinks in the Presidents Invitation Match and all indoor Matches.

The Club Delegate is responsible to ensuring that the match details are made available to their bowlers and for ensuring that names of those wishing to be considered for selection are submitted to the Match Secretary.  Bowlers should make inquiries about nominations in the first instance through their Delegate.

Should bowlers wish to ensure they are on the nomination list or wish to add their names after they have been submitted they should contact the Match Secretary on matchsecretary@sadba.club .

If unavailable after selection, bowlers must contact the Match Secretary or President as soon as possible.  Their contact details are in the District handbook, on the Match Selection Sheets and on the website at https://www.sadba.club/contacts/.
