Southampton & District Bowling Association leagues - men

The S&DBA leagues run in the evenings (end of April to early August) on: 

Tuesdays (Combination) Divisions 1-4 are played as rinks (3 teams), division 5 is for triples.

Thursdays (Championship) with 4 teams of rinks from each club playing against each other. There are three divisions - Meon Valley are in division 3.

The same players can play in the Championship and Combination leagues, but skips  from the Championship are not permitted to skip in the Combination. Players may not play in more than one Combination match in any week. The dress is greys with club shirts. No match fee - but £2.50 for the meal.

Two points are available to be won on each rink. 

Meon Valley are the current champions of the Combination 4 league and looking forward to promotion.

In 2020 teams are likely to be entered for the Championship 3, Combination 1 and 3 leagues (click on the underline to go to the current league table) and will get up and running in late April/ early May.

The fixtures will appear here when they are published in March, including a print version available for download. All matches start at 6.15pm.      

As the club's Men's match secretary, Peter Fry, assisted by the Men's match sub-committee, sort out all the arrangements, including selection. All men are entitled to put themselves forward - sign up on the notice board at the start of the outdoor season - for consideration.

The two Carols (Fry and Dennis) do a grand job in the kitchen preparing the after match meals and there's always someone on hand to ensure the bar meets the demand.
