Back your Veterans League fancies

Well-Bowled Fantasy League

The start of a new season and hopes are high in many clubs for some success this time around. Do you believe that your team is destined for a good summer season of bowling action? Are you convinced more than ever that your nearest and oldest rivals are going down the pan this year? Shortly we will be posting our weekly preview of the week's matches in the 6-man and 10-man league but before then you can back your own judgement.

Back your premonitions by selecting your top teams in each of the divisions of the Veterans League and then watch them all season as all your predictions fail to fulfil that promise. Just back the 8 teams that you think are going to win the 8 divisions of the Veterans League. Even if they don't win their respective divisions as long as all 8 together accumulate more points than any other entrant then you are in the money in the Well Bowled sponsored Fantasy league with £200 worth of bowling goods to be won.

Every point your 8 selections win goes to your Fantasy League total. That's all there is to it. We offer an easier entry option by asking us to pick a Lucky Dip entry on your behalf. You can then tweak those selections as many times as you like before the 4 April closing date.

The number of entries to the £200 Well Bowled sponsored Fantasy League is on the up and is now 39 as local bowlers note the season starts in one week and that brings the deadline for entries into play. Here is the full list of the bowlers that have entered the competition to date.

The final closing date is 12noon on Monday 4 April. The easiest way to enter is the Lucky Dip entry option which means you have to give us your name and club and then leave about everything else to us to sort out your entry and give you the easiest of passages towards winning £200 of vouchers to spend with Well Bowled of Luddendenfoot. Lucky Dip selections have a good track record having won the top prize twice before.

Click here to use the absolute minimum Lucky Dip entry form. Nothing to lose and you are in the mix for £200 of Well Bowled vouchers. Easy Peasy. You are then in the competition, no need to read any further.

If you feel the need to control your own selections then that is great. You can make your own 8 team selections using the form below. You can then change any of the selections for your preferred choice as many times as you like before the 4 April deadline. Submit your entry now to make sure you are in the start-of-season mix.

Last season's final league tables for all eight divisions of the Veterans League are at the foot of this posting. You can also take advantage of the pre-season previews that appeared on this website recently with an informed opinion about the top contenders in each division. Pick your link...

I am also very pleased to tell you that the long term supporter of the competition, Well Bowled of Luddendenfoot, has resumed its sponsorship with an increased prize fund. There is a total of £200 worth of Well Bowled vouchers to be won this year including a new £20 voucher prize to be won every month through the season. Good luck to you all.

This is how the 2022 Fantasy League is going to work:

  1. Entrants select one team from each of the 8 divisions in the Veterans League. That's 5 from the 10-Man League and 3 from the 6-Man League. Alternatively, opt for a Lucky Dip entry and leave all the work to us.

  2. Every point your 8 selections win over the season goes towards your Fantasy League total.

  3. The top scorer at the end of the season collects a £50 Well Bowled voucher. In the event of a tie then the Tie-Breaker score is taken into account. There are prizes for the two closest challengers - a £20 voucher for the runner-up and a £10 voucher for the third-placed finisher.

  4. The Tie-Breaker is your best guess at how many points the end of season Division 1 Champion will have accumulated.

  5. Every bowler (male or female) or ex-bowler in Huddersfield is entitled to one free entry to the competition. You don't have to bowl in any particular League but you will have to name the club you bowl for to qualify for a free entry. One entry per bowler.

  6. One big difference is that at the end of every month you will be able to substitute one of your underperforming team selections and replace them with another team from the same division.

  7. The closing date for entries is Monday 4 April 2022 by 12noon.

New for this season is a new monthly competition using the same 8 selections. This will run alongside the main season-long competition and this is how that works.

  1. Each month during the six-month season there is a monthly competition to include just the points won during that calendar month. This will use the same 8 selections you have picked for the season-long competition.

  2. All entrants will start each calendar month with no points.

  3. The top scorer in each calendar month will receive a £20 Well Bowled voucher.

  4. In the event of a tie on points in any month then the new Monthly Tie-Breaker will determine the winner of that month's prize.
