Reinforcement of Covid Rules

For all Bradley club members and Winter League players, supporters & spectators, please see information below from the club committee.

In the last few days we were made aware of a club member testing positive for Covid.

The person in question had been at the green practicing in the day time on Monday 22nd November and also played in a winter league game the following evening, prior to testing positive on Thursday 25th. We were able to use the track and trace information that we’d gathered to inform everyone affected and have made sure that the clubhouse has had an additional ‘fogging’ with the disinfectant spray.

In light of this incident, we would please ask you to continue to add your name in the book for track and trace purposes when you visit the green. Regardless of whether you’re playing or spectating your details are still needed.

We would also ask captains of winter league teams to keep a record of ALL attending team members, including reserves, plus their own spectators/supporters, again for track and trace purposes.

Please can we also remind you that you shouldn’t be shaking hands with anyone prior to playing a game and you need to wear a mask in the clubhouse & conservatory unless you’re sat at a table with food or drink.

During recent weeks enforcement of the rules has slipped but this has acted as a reminder that the virus hasn’t gone away. In light of this incident and the news announcements in the last few days about the new Omicron variant and the tightening of restrictions around the country we’re appealing to you to do your bit and help keep everyone as safe as possible.

Sam Roberts Charity Pairs Cup in aid of Declan's Den - Saturday 13th November 2021

 

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Charity Pairs Cup on Saturday. After an excellent day's bowling all round and a very close final, the winners were Ian Jones and Martin Jones, just edging out Robin & Graham Bennett 21-19.

 

We managed to raise £550 for Declan’s Den, a new group based in Wrexham who are helping young people with mental health problems and suicidal tendencies.

 

The club would like to thank the sponsors, Lee Wright Plumbing & Heating, the players and all those who gave their time to help on the day or came along to support.

 

The winners are pictured below, receiving the trophy from Sam Roberts.

Tue Sep 14th

TO ALL CAPTAINS

The league restarts tonight so just a couple of bits of information to help/remind you.

 

Away team has the jack.

 

The first match listed in the fixtures on any night (as shown on the FULL 2021 "Fixtures" page NOT the "Current Week's Fixtures/Results" page) should be the one that starts with 3 jacks (1 pair, 2 singles), with the second match listed having only 2 jacks. If you click on your team name on the FULL 2021 "Fixtures" page to see just your own matches for the season, you will see either 1st or 2nd against each match. This confirms which match is the 1st or 2nd on any night and therefore has either 3 or 2 jacks to start. This has been reversed in the second half of the season to keep things fair.

 

If you start with 3 jacks you MUST pass the first singles jack that finishes their game to the other match. Each match then keeps hold of their jacks.

 

Tue Sep 7th

TO ALL CAPTAINS

Now that a couple of issues have been sorted out, Magnum Force are back in the league. We've therefore had to regenerate all the fixtures for a 3rd time, so we're back again now to 13 teams plus byes. The first week (14-16th Sept) took some arranging in the first place as we tried to accommodate fixture clashes for 5 different teams. It therefore stays as it is and I (Kevin) have no intention of changing anything at this late stage, particularly as I'm currently on holiday! All other fixtures from 21st Sept onwards are likely to have changed once again.

 

Sun Sep 5th

TO ALL CAPTAINS

The new fixtures with 12 teams only (no byes) are now live. The first week (14-16th Sept) was kept as it is but all other fixtures from 21st Sept onwards are likely to have changed. Please have a good look and notify either Kevin Nugent or Ray Barnes ASAP if there are any problems.

 

 

Sat Sep 4th

TO ALL CAPTAINS

Unfortunately, Magnum Force have withdrawn from the league so we're back to 12 teams and no byes. As a result we need to regenerate all the fixtures for the season but we'll keep the first week (14-16th Sept) as it is, as everyone is working towards these dates now. An announcement will be made as soon as this has been done, so keep an eye on this page, but please expect your fixtures to change from 21st Sept onwards.

 

Tue Aug 31st

TO ALL CAPTAINS

Please keep a close eye on the first 3 weeks of fixtures in September as we may need to make changes due to other leagues extending their end dates. Please contact Kevin Nugent or Ray Barnes ASAP if there's a potential fixture clash with another league, or if there's a particular night you need to avoid should we move your fixture.

 

Mon Aug 30th

The fixtures for the 2021/22 Winter League are now live. Welcome back to all our previous teams and players and a warm welcome to "Team Spirit" who replace Manley.
