Boor & Wainwright Shield Competition
The Boor & Wainwright Shield is competed for annually by all the teams registered in the Stamford & District Bowls League.
Two teams of 9 registered players compete on three rinks, playing 21 ends (plus 2 trial ends) of two-wood triples to EBF rules. The teams are handicapped according to their positions in the league divisions at the start of the season.
The first stage is a round-robin, with teams drawn in groups. For 2023, there are 4 groups, each with 7 teams. Each team plays every other team in the same group once, at the green of the home-drawn team.
The top eight teams go forward to the quarter finals. The quarter finals and semi-finals are played on a knock-out basis, with play-by dates (to be decided) for each stage.
For 2023, the top 2 teams in each of the 4 groups will go forward to the quarter finals. The draw will be published after all the results have been entered.
Reminder: Having once played in any round of the competition a player shall then be “cup-tied” to any other competing team. Players registered for another team within the club are not eligible.
The final will be played at Langtoft Bowls Club on Sunday 27th August 2023 at 2.00 pm.
The winning team will be presented with the Boor & Wainwright Shield, to be held for one year.
