M11 Winter League 2020-2021

M11 Winter League

2020-2021

1. The M11 is a Mixed singles competition, matches played over 11 ends.

2. There are 36 competitors split into six groups (Blue, Green, Red, Yellow, Grey, Violet), taking into account player experience and performance particularly in previous M11 competitions.

3. All competitors in a group will play singles matches, over 11 ends, against all other competitors in that group on a league basis, as in the schedule of fixtures - a total of five matches each.

4. The normal rules of the game shall apply (including trial ends and killed ends), except there shall be no visiting the head until after the player’s 3rd bowl has been delivered.

5. There shall be 2 points for a win and one point for a draw. The shot difference will be considered in the event of two competitors on equal points at the end of the competition. If this fails to separate two players, the result of their match will be considered.

6. The first set of matches will begin at 11a.m., the second set will follow on at 12 noon.

7. A player not present 10 minutes after the scheduled start time shall forfeit the match with 2 points, awarded to the opponent.  The opponent shall be deemed to have won with a shot difference of 12 and both players scores will be adjusted accordingly.

8. All competitors are expected to be available to mark on the days indicated they will be playing in the schedule. If not available they should arrange for a stand-in and let me know.

9. Matches are scheduled and should normally be played at the times indicated. If this is not possible it is the responsibility of the competitor who is unable to make the scheduled date to:

• let me and the opponent know before the due date, at the earliest opportunity;

• arrange an alternative date convenient for their opponent (any day of the week) and let me know;

• arrange a marker;

• communicate the result to me within two days of the match and put the score card (with names of players and marker) in the sleeve on the noticeboard.

10. 10. The last date for any match (other than the Finals) shall be Sunday 21st March 2021.

11. The winner of each league will go through to the M11 Finals together with the two runners-up with the best shot difference. (In the event of a tie on shot difference the runner-up with the highest ‘shots for’ will go through.)

12. On the M11 Finals Day (provisionally set for Sunday 28th March 2021*) the 6 winners and 2 runners-up will play off (runners up to play winners of a different league) to determine four to go through to the semi-finals, winners of which to play in the Final. All matches to be played on one day.

13. In the event that any of the winners are unavailable for the M11 Finals Day*, the runner-up with the next highest shot difference will take their place, if this runner-up is unavailable then the next best, etc.

14. The rules for the Finals will be the same as normal M11 matches, except that in the event of a draw an extra end will be played until a winner is determined.

15. Dress for M11: flat shoes, otherwise dress appropriate for the weather. Dress for M11 Finals: Greys.

16. It is to be expected that matches will be played unless the green is frozen or deemed unplayable. In the event of seriously inclement weather or a frozen green, matches might have to be postponed.

17. If a match has to be abandoned the score will count if six ends have been completed.

18. It is required that all players complete four of their five fixtures to remain in the competition. If a player forfeits or concedes more than one of their matches none of their results, played or not played, shall count towards the competition.

19. There is a £3 entrance fee for the competition, to be paid at the first match.

What a Marker should do

If you're not sure of any of this

just ask.

· centre the jack,

· spot the jack 2 metres from the

· front ditch if it is delivered within

· that distance,

· mark touchers*,

· put dead bowls on the bank,

· mark the ditch to show resting
· position(s) of a live jack and any

· live bowls,

· keep the score on the scorecard.

 

You'll need chalk (or spray-chalk) to mark touchers and a measure - borrow them on the day if you haven't yet got them.

 Do not engage the players in conversation and only chat with them if they initiate it. During play, the ideal position to stand is 5-7 feet behind, and 2-3 feet to the side of the jack.

Answer questions about who is holding shot if one bowl is obviously closer to the jack than the other. If it isn’t obvious, be safe by signalling “it’s a measure.” In general, do not volunteer information.

If the players ask you to measure, ask them to remove all bowls not in contention. It's they who decide, not you, so don't push any bowls out.

Wait until they mutually agree on the end score, then record it. It's not for the Marker to decide the result.

* Remember only a bowl, which, in its

original course on the green, touches the jack, shall be called a "toucher". If, after coming to rest, a bowl falls over and touches the jack, it is also a toucher provided the next succeeding bowl has not been delivered or, in the case of the last bowl of an end, before 30 seconds has elapsed.

A toucher shall be clearly marked with chalk immediately or before the next succeeding bowl comes to rest. All chalk marks shall be removed before the bowl is played again.

Once the jack is in the ditch, no further bowls can become touchers. Markers should therefore be ready to stop a bowl that is about to enter the ditch so that it does not move the jack.
