Coming up - Garden Cities Qualifier
Coming up - Garden Cities Qualifier

The Wiltshire Garden Cities Qualifier of teams of eight will be held at the Bowls club Devizes at 2 pm on Sunday, 06 January.  Clubs are asked to enter a team by the 20th December so that numbers may be known.

Teams will be limited to nine clubs and if more than nine clubs enter by the 20th December there will have to be a ballot.

A club may enter a second team at the discretion of the E.O (Roger Karn) but priority will always be given to first teams.

The winning club will go on to represent Wiltshire at the Bristol regional final on Saturday the 27th April and if successful there the national final on Saturday 15th June.  At all times team members must be playing members of the club they represent but team personnel can change between our event, the regional and national finals."

This Team-of-Eight competition is open to all EBU affiliated clubs in Wiltshire. 

All team members must be bona fide members of the club.
