Good afternoon, Ladies

I hope everyone is surviving the winter okay and managing to stay dry.  Your ladies match committee have met to complete a Women’s programme and conditions of play for the 2022-23 season. At this stage the programme has been completed to the 31st January to Semi Finals for championship games, the exception being the Fours which have a designated finals date. The Lincoln Bowling Club match committees have busy programmes but would like to hold a joint finals day if practicable. This will be reviewed once competitions are completed to that stage. The women’s programme will be reviewed in December for 2023 January – April which will include non-Championship competitions. Programme attached.

We will update the conditions of play on the website when these have been finalised.  Section play for all Championship games are now played as 4 games round robin with the top four players / teams qualifying for Post section. This change of format was passed at the AGM.

Entries can now be entered for Women’s Championship events on the LBC website. Please also enter for Ellesmere Cup and Centre 2 Fours if you  wish to be considered for these events. The password is the same as last year.

PLEASE NOTE UNDER 5 PLAYERS we are holding the Under 5 singles jointly with the under 5 men on Saturday November 26th.

Kind Regards,
Lois, Mar O, Kay and Magaret W.
