Bowlsnet

Bowlsnet is an external Results Reporting system built specifically for Crown Green Bowling Leagues. It has been built, developed and is supported by crown green bowler Steve Blaymire from Lancashire. More than 200 leagues now use this service for which a modest annual charge is made by the developer. It provides instant updates to league tables, KO competitions, bowler averages as results are submitted online by clubs. It provides a wealth of reports and in-depth statistics to satisfy the most ardent of bowlers.


Click on the League you are interested in to go straight to the homepage of that League.

Be aware that many of the Bowlsnet reports have not been updated since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can then view previous years records by clicking on 'LIVE' in the bottom right corner.

ANSWERS

1.  How do I access Bowlsnet?
The quickest way is to use the links in the menu item Bowlsnet at the top of every page on this website. These will take you directly to the correct point in your league.

2.  Do I need a password to access Bowlsnet?
No you don't. There is completely open access to view any of the Results, Fixtures, Tables, Player Averages. You only need a Username and Password to input match results.

3.  Can I look at results, averages and league tables for previous seasons?
Yes you can. We have records going back to 2014 online. In the bottom right hand corner you will see a 'LIVE' button. Click on that and select the season you wish to view. Click on it again and select 'LIVE' to return to the current season.

4.  I play in four leagues who all use Bowlsnet is there a quick way to gain access to them all?
Yes there is. Go to http://www.bowlsnet.uk/ and click on 'My Bowlsnet' and from there you can select each of the leagues you want to follow. Add that page to your favourites and then they will all be waiting for you each time you access that favourites link. This will also provide you with a complete record of every match you have played this season providing season-long totals. [See also Bowlsnet Masterclass at the foot of this page]

5.  Can I use Bowlsnet on my smartphone and tablet?
Yes you can. Use your smartphone or tablet browser, connect to  Bowlsnet as normal as the site is now even more mobile friendly. You can also set up 'My Bowlsnet' as per the instructions in FAQ 4.

6.  Can I view Singles and Pairs results and averages separately and Combined?
Yes you can. All singles, Pairs and Combined averages are available from within the 'Averages' menu button. So select AVERAGES from the top left menu. If you are just wanting averages for one team then select TEAM from top right menu and then select the team name. Go to the right hand menu in the top line and select ALL for combined totals. Select the single button or pairs button as you require.

7.  What does the orange shading on match results signify?
This indicates that this team has still to VERIFY that match result. That is the equivalent of signing the Result Card to confirm the result. The result is still posted but this verifying tidies up the administration of that match.

8.  How can a bowler's record show Played 20 Won 9 Lost 10? It doesn't add up.
Where a bowler has been gifted a match 21-0 by a Walk-Over that bowler gets credited with playing the match but does not get credited with a 21-0 scoreline to boost their average. Hence the difference in that total. If you look back over that bowler's results for the season you will find that they had a Walk-Over match at some point.

9.  Can I make the text bigger on Bowlsnet?
Yes you can. Use the + and - buttons on the top right hand menu.
