2016 Outdoor Season Successes
We had a very successful 2016 season in the four Men's and Mixed inter-club leagues we played in as well as two inter-club competitions as follows :
        * Winners of the NSBL Men's Triples League
        * Winners of the Moxon's Mixed Triples League
        * Winners of the
Ladies double fours Past Times Competition
        * Winners of the NSBL Men's double triples Ron Willson Triples Competition
        * Winners Up in the K&D Fours League
However, the highlight this season was undoubtedly when our member, Dave Hill, won the Men's Surrey County Unbadged Singles competition.
Our Men also won the County Area 2 Top 4 competition and then narrowly lost the overall County Top 4 Final.
In the Men's S&DBA competitions we won the Ted Peirce Singles and were Runners-Up in the Arthur Hughes Triples.
Our Ladies again did well in the BE National competitions by reaching the National Finals stage of the Triples after being Runners-Up in the Surrey County Triples Final.

Bowls England Rule Changes for the 2015 Season
Below is a downloadable and printable document issued by Bowls England summarising a number of rule changes applicable as from the start of the 2015 Outdoor Season.  Please make sure you are familiar with them.

 ---------------------------------------------------------

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  Once placed, they must remain in place for the duration of the match or until we consider the risk of damage is no longer valid.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.
