Poll result and comments

Updated: Feb 12, 2022

Winter League

Our first poll for a while attracted 60 votes and two-thirds of those were cast for no change in the Winter League rules about setting a maximum distance for a mark be set at 35 metres. Here are all the votes and comments received.


Do you think the Winter League should introduce a new rule to limit the maximum mark to 35metres?

NO - 40 votes (67%) YES - 11 votes (18%) YES but only in the bottom division - 9 votes (15%)

I think it would cause problems trying to enforce, corner bowling is an essential part of the game.

Stay as it is

35 metres is the length of bowling from one edge to the other opposite edge. I think if there were to be a limit it should be 40 metres which is just over twice the length of a mark. If you to bowl full corners which is 56 yards on a 40 X 40 bowling green I dont think many people would manage more than 50 yards as we are all veterans so I think 40 metres gives everyone a fair chance

Definitely in favour of it in any leagues below division two
