2020 Club Competitions
Because of the late opening of the season it's not been possible to run all our usual club competitions.  However we have managed to salvage 4 competitions which we believe can still be squeezed in before the end of the season.  The draw sheets for these competitions are posted on the Members Page.

Supreme Members in the 2019 County and Bowls England National Finals
For a small club like ours we had a particularly successful season with our lady members winning the Surrey County 2-Wood Singles and the Triples, and being runners-up in the 4-Wood Singles and 2-Wood Singles.    These ladies then went on to play the final stages of those competitions in the National Finals held at Leamington Spa.
Three of our ladies also played in the victorious Surrey County Ladies team in the National Johns competition at Leamington Spa.

Bowls England Rule Change in 2012

A notable rule change in 2012 as defined by the SCBA is as follows :

Portable / removable groundsheets are not acceptable for County Championships (from Prelim round onwards) or for National Competitions.   Fixed mats must be used as stated in Laws of the Sports 19.1.5 - 19.1.5.5.   If fixed mats are considered necessary a competitor cannot refuse to play.   He will forfeit the game if he refuses.

Clarification Note :  At Supreme we term groundsheets as protective nets or mats, and are used to protect the green from damage from badly delivered bowls.  The groundsheets must be fixed in place along their sides by flat headed pins or nails with no / minimal projection above ground level.  Groundsheets must be fixed with their rear edge at least 2 metres from the ditch and not more than 25 metres from the front ditch.  Once placed, they must remain in place for the duration of the match or until we consider the risk of damage is no longer valid.  The bowling mat is to be placed with its front edge just overlapping the rear edge of the groundsheet to avoid a trip risk.
