The Evening Telegraph bowls competition

We are delighted to announce the return of the popular Evening Telegraph Open Knockout Cup competition.

After its fantastic success in recent summers we are ready to take entries for the 2012 tournament.

The requirements are simple.

Each team will be made up of eight bowlers who will make two rinks of four.

Teams can be male, female or mixed and entries are open to any bowls clubs or groups.

A club can enter as many sides as they wish but no player can play in more than one team.

The matches will consist of 16 ends plus one trial end and will be played in greys.

The home team will be responsible for any green fees and must offer their opponents two dates on which to play – one weekend and one midweek.

The final will be on Sunday, August 5 at Kettering Lodge, will consist of 21 ends plus two trial ends, be played in whites and no rink fees are to be charged.

Entry fees for the competition will be £8 per team.

Cheques should be made payable to Kettering Lodge BC and sent to Mr J Harris, 1 Blake Court, Barton Seagrave, Kettering, NN15 5EU.

All entry forms must be received by Friday, April 27 and the draw will be made on April 30.

Good luck…
