Update on the current suspension of skittles

No skittles will be played until the restrictions forcing the closure of all pubs & clubs is lifted. The Committee will review the situation after Easter & will keep all team captains informed of any developments. In the circumstances any competitions which are scheduled to commence from 6 April 2020 onwards are cancelled. We would ask that team captains do not contact the Fixture Secretary during these difficult times as he is unable to provide any information as to when skittles might resume.

Suspension of skittles owing to the Coronavirus pandemic

In the light of the guidance issued by HM Government this afternoon, to avoid social gatherings pubs & travel to stop the virus, it has been decided by the officers of the Dorchester & District Skittle League to suspend all skittles with immediate effect. As the situation is changing day by day we cannot give you any indication as to when skittles may resume or whether the season will be completed. We will keep you informed of any developments once contingency plans are made & it is deemed safe for a normal way of life to resume.
