Bowls England published the draw for Top Club yesterday 25th April. I was therefore unable to review the fixed dates prior to the handbook being printed. As there are fewer entrants this year the games will not start until a fortnight later in the season, I have therefore reviewed the dates.
The FIXED DATES are now:
Preliminary round Saturday 8th June
1st round Saturday 29th June
2nd round Saturday 13th or Sunday 14th July
(this is dependent on whether any of your or you oppositions team are playing in the regional ¼ final of the Johns)
3rd round Saturday 27th July
The good news is that as Beds are all playing in the top half of the draw there will be a Bowls Bedfordshire Top Club Winner this year.
Please ensure your selectors are aware of the changed fixed dates.
Good luck to all paying in the event.
