Invitation Tournament Rules

Each team MUST consist of 2 Men and 2 Ladies.

The Tournament is based on the Schedule of play as provided to each team.

Please be aware of the letter allocated to your team.

The Tournament covers all disciplines and is based on net overall shot difference accumulated from games played by each individual team of 4 players over the 2 day period.

Each game is started with 2 trial ends of 2 woods only from each player. The skips toss for the mat.

All games (including trial ends) will be played as normal within the time limits specified. The bell being rung at the commencement of each session and again 5 minutes before the end of each session after which no further jacks may be set.

If the end is killed the jack will be re-spotted using the two metre baton (as close as possible to the Tee).

In the event of a team failing to arrive within 15 minutes of the start of any session, the game and plus 5 shots will be awarded to their opponents.

Unless otherwise stated, laws of the sport of bowls (Crystal mark 3 edition) will apply.

Unresolved disputes will be considered by the UMPIRE in the first instance and, if necessary, the Organisers whose decisions will be final.

The Pairs sessions are mixed i.e. 1 male and 1 female with 2 woods only for each player. The Rinks, Triples and Singles are played with 2, 3 and 4 woods as normal.

Score cards are provided to each team for each game. Please keep your scorecards in the normal way – your score on the left – your opponents on the right. Completed, signed and timed scorecards must be returned to the recorder at the end of each game and the card for the next game collected.

For the singles game the scorecard will be held by the marker and signed and timed at the end by both players. The scoreboard at the end will reflect the marker's scorecard regardless of who wins the toss for the mat. One member of each team MUST mark the singles match. Two markers per match and the marker at the odd end will keep the scoreboard.

The start times may be brought forward slightly depending on running times and the weather.
