Entry form

The entry form for the forthcoming season needs to be sent to the League Secretary by Friday 23rd July . Your entry form will mean that you have been in touch with your pub/club and they will be available for skittles from September.

Please contact Brian Newton if you don’t intend on entering your side for the 21-22 season or with any other enquiries regarding the re-start of the D&DSL.

Strugglers

Strugglers who play on Thursday nights at Goldies are looking for a couple of players and a sticker upper who is happy to play as and when required. Please contact Alan Simmons on 07341317999 for further details.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The UK Government’s decision to postpone the final phase of the route out of lockdown makes it virtually impossible to stage a large meeting within the current constraints. The Committee have therefore decided to reschedule the Annual General Meeting which will now take place on Friday 6th August 2021, at 8pm, in the Dorset Room at the Colliton Club. Hopefully the 4 week delay will mean we are fully out of lockdown and everyone will have received at least their first Covid vaccination.

It is still the intention that the League season will commence in September so there will be insufficient time to get the League Handbooks compiled, printed and distributed before skittles starts. The fixtures plus team information for each section will be published on the website by Mid August and you will receive an email from the Hon Secretary when the fixtures are available. A small number of scorecards and a scorebook, for those who need them, will be available at the AGM together with a player registration form.

Please accept the Committee’s apologises for any inconvenience the change of date may cause. I am sure you will all recognise the need to stay safe at the current time.

The date for entries for the League will now be put back to Friday 23rd July 2021 due to the latest extra four weeks added to the current situation. Your entry form will mean that you have been in touch with your pub/club and they will be available for skittles from September.

History pages

Check out the history pages on the website. This is an ongoing project which will be updated to give you all an insight on the past history of the league. If anyone can help with any missing teams/years or mistakes please contact terry.gosney@btinternet.com , especially any information about league winners from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s as the skittle fixture books only started putting in the previous seasons tables from 1980.
