A second team has been added to the waiting list of teams applying to join the League for next season. Brockholes is a new team in the League this season but already their experiences have convinced sufficient club bowlers to put their names down to fill a second team for the 2022-23 season.
The Brockholes 'B' team now sit alongside the Huddersfield RUBC (Rugby Club) as teams to join in the action next season. At this rate we are definitely going to need a fourth host green, and maybe a fifth as well, to cater for all the teams that want to play competitive bowling during the winter months.
The three host clubs expect to make over £2,000 each for providing a winter green alongside some services which is funding they wouldn't normally expect to receive. We are always happy to talk to any club that is interested in learning more about the implications and benefits of hosting matches through the winter. There are good financial reasons for hosting matches but our current hosts have found that it doesn't stop at immediate financial reasons as justification for assuming the role. Just get in touch and let's talk about it.
New team applications are always welcome at any time. We are now taking entries for the 2022-2023 season. The headlines to take into account when thinking about joining us are:
