The Metropolitan Bowls Association (MBA) has produced the side listings for the Pennant Season 2021 / 2022. The listings that effects our club are those for Wednesday and Saturday. Please note that the MBA has issued the following warning;
“Side Listings and the Draw
As in past years there are likely to be some changes to the draws before the start of the season. These occur because Clubs advise us of the addition or withdrawal of sides, but this normally only affects a few Sections. We recommend that clubs wait a week or two before producing and distributing schedules for their sides.”
Please take note of this warning and be aware that it is most likely that updated side listings will follow.
The initial advice from the MBA may be found here. The side listing for Wednesday may be found here and the side listing for Saturday may be found here.
