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/.
