7 Days to closing date for 2 Veterans KO competitions

Veterans League

One week today sees the Veterans League season begin with the opening round of fixtures in the 6-Man League. That is also the closing date for entries for the Lower Divisions Trophy competition. The new format competition programme looks to reduce the total timespan of each KO competition this season. The final of this competition being played 10 days after the closing date.

Along with the Over-70's KO competition both these titles should be played right through and completed in the month of April. In fact the first closing date for one of the competitions is before the start date for the 10-Man League where many of the entries traditionally come from.

Those interested in playing in the Lower Divisions Trophy have until next Monday (3 April) to get your entries in. The Lower Divisions Trophy is open to any bowler who is not going to play in any 10-Man League Division 1 or Division 2 fixtures. So those bowlers that only play in the 6-Man League can all enter the KO competition. This one is specially included to give the lower level bowlers a KO competition just for them. In addition handicaps will be applied to level out the chances of bowlers playing at all levels.

New Competition Secretary, Steve Lee, is keen to concertina the rounds of many of the individual competitions so that interest is maintained throughout a shorter lapsed period of time during which all rounds and finals are completed.

That approach is exemplified with the Lower Division Trophy where the key dates are all within a 10 day period as shown below:

Closing Date for entries: Monday 3 April

Preliminary Rounds: Thursday 6 April

Finals Day: Thursday 13 April

Andrew Wike of Huddersfield Recreation Club is the title holder and he is eligible to defend his title this year. Entries are now open and can be completed online: Enter here

The Over-70s KO competition is also now open for entries with the key dates being:

Preliminary Rounds: Friday 14 April Rounds down to 8: Thursday 20 April

Finals Day: Thursday 27 April
