At Evesham Bowling Club, Blind Lane, off Albert Road, Evesham WR11 4LE/WR11 4JX

Starting at 9.30am

All competitors must reside in the Parish or Ward they are representing.  This is because it is an Inter-Parish Competition.  Where a person resides between more than one Wychavon Parish/Ward, they may only play for the Parish or Ward in which they predominantly reside. Being on the electoral roll for a Parish does not in itself constitute residency.

  • Competitors who are studying full-time at University or College will be eligible to compete for the Parish/Ward where they normally reside until they have completed their course,
  • Where an ineligible competitor has been found to have breached these rules, then that Parish/Ward will forfeit all points gained in that event.
  1. The team details must be recorded on the team sheet, provided by WPGA, which was sent to Parishes that have entered. This is for Insurance and Health and Safety reasons.
    • The team sheet must provide the following details for each team member: name, full address with post code, and it must be signed by each team member. By signing the team sheet, the team member confirms that he/she is medically able to take part in the event and is doing so at his/her own risk.
    • For competitors under the age of 18 on the day of the event, the team sheet must be signed by their parent or guardian.
    • The team sheet must be handed to a member of the Committee before the event starts.
    • If a team does not comply with the requests above or fails to provide the team’s details, then they will not be allowed to enter the event, unless there are circumstances which were beyond their control.
  2. Where a Parish/Ward has entered an event, but does not then take part, they will be deducted 2 points from their Parish/Ward’s overall score unless they have given a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of their non participation, or there were extenuating circumstances.
  3. Any queries prior to the event should be made to the Event Organiser or to the WPGA Secretary
    • Following the event, any dispute or protest must be made by the Team Captain to the WPGA Secretary within 24 hours of the event. In the first instance, this can be done verbally, and only by the Team Captain, so that the facts can be established.
    • If the matter is not resolved, then any further protest should be put in writing to the WPGA Secretary by the Parish Organiser, within 7 days.
  4. Abuse of any of the people identified in the WPGA Abuse Policy will not be tolerated by the Committee. (Team Captains and competitors must be made aware of the contents of this policy. This will be included in the pack sent out with the rules.)
  5. Once a team has withdrawn from an event, they will not be allowed to re-enter.
  6. A Team shall consist of Four Players and can be Men, Ladies or Mixed.
  7. If a Parish can only field 3 Players, the Lead will play 3 bowls, the number two will play 3 bowls, and the Skip will play 2 bowls – but they will forfeit 25% of their score in each game.
  8. Minimum age 11 years.
  9. Each Parish/Ward may only enter one team.
  10. Substitutes will only be allowed in exceptional circumstances.
  11. The event shall be conducted under Bowls England rules and regulations (with the exception of rule 8 above).
  12. Casual dress is allowed. Flat, rubber soled footwear is mandatory.
  13. The format for the event will depend on the number of entries. Refreshments and a licensed bar will be available, and a raffle may be held.
  14. Parish Captains must confirm to the WPGA Secretary between Sunday 8th September and Sunday 15th September 2024 that they will be taking part. Confirmation must not be made before 8th September 2024.
  15. Evesham Bowling Club can provide woods to Parishes who need these.
