Jim Swire Doubles; Rule E2b reads Teams to consist of 10 players (5 pairs). All team players must have played one (1) League game before playing the second prelimary round and have played at least two (2) League team games by the quarter final stages. Due to Divison 2 starting this season three weeks later than the rest of the League, the Management Committee have taken the decision concerning rule E2b and only the part of the rule in red above will apply to Division 2 for this season only.

Coach Course

Shropshire are hosting another Level 1 Coaching Award on 11 May & 22 June. There is still a substantial subsidy of 50% available from BCGBA and SCGBA will contribute towards the cost so I am looking for volunteers to step forward and volunteer.

Some leagues are very well represented by coaches but large areas of the county e.g. Ludlow, Oswestry, Market Drayton have none and Shrewsbury & Whitchurch only a few. So, please think seriously about becoming a coach. We really need you in order to grow our sport – don’t be shy. 

Club Coaching Sessions

The Shropshire coaching team are open for business once again. We did 20 visits to clubs  last year and would really like to surpass that this year. So, whether we have been to you before or you would like us to visit for the first time please contact me to arrange a visit. We can offer sessions for all abilities not just the basics and can offer school taster sessions too so do get in touch
