In pairs matches the players are to always follow each other, for example if player 1 of a pair hits a winning double, in the next leg it is player 2 who is to throw first, (AGM Summer 2018)
This also applies to the triples competition in the winter season.
Players can now be entered on a match sheet as reserves (Download from this website), but only if they are in attendance. This will count towards the eligibility to play in the competitions that season.
The Presidents Cup and Knight Kimber Trophy were played for last night, two semi finals and a final in both.
The presidents cup had the top four from division one playing and that was evident by the standard on the night, numerous quick legs, high scores and shot outs. The final was between Queens Club and The Duke Of Connaught and a very close match it turned out to be. The DoC took the first game, but the match was even at 3-3. The then moved into a 4-3 lead with S Phipps beating R Williams. This set up P Winter to win his match against P Sharp and claim the cup.
The Knight Kimber was won by The RAFA Dambusters who beat Foresters Arms 5-1 in the final. A mention for the WPM from Div 4 only losing 5-3 to Div 1 Dambusters and also for The Foresters Arms Div 2 beating RAFA Spitfires Div 1 5-4 in their respective semi finals
Well done both teams and thank you to the venues for hosting.
