Possible New League

- by Terry Stratton

The League Committee has contacted club secretaries concerning a possible additional league for 2023 made up of teams of a lower number of players and possibly a different format. For instance, this could be a single rink of 3 or 4 players, or even two rinks of 2 or 3 players, ends or sets based.

This is a major proposed addition, and therefore the idea is being raised early so as all club’s members can have time to give it due consideration during the forthcoming season. 

Towards the end of the season the League Committee will canvas clubs to see if there is any interest in this proposed new league, and their thoughts on what format it might take.
