Hailsham Summer Pairs 2024

There is no play on Bank Holiday weeks.

Secretary Needed

The Wealden League is a fairly trim organisation, that has a committee of five people. A Chairman, a Vice-Chairman, a Secretary, a Treasurer, and a Fixture Secretary. Between them, they keep the Wealden League on the rails, providing a framework for competitive short mat bowls to be played in the Wealden and surrounding areas each winter.
The problem with trim organisations is that if somebody leaves, the gap can be a real problem, even if the role itself is relatively small.
And this is where we find ourselves, and we need to fill the Secretary’s post. The role is not greatly time-consuming, nor particularly complicated, but you would need to have access to a computer of some kind. So, what does the role entail:

Arrange, attend, and take minutes from two committee meetings a year, then distribute the minutes to the committee. (The next one will probably be in July.)

Arrange, attend, and take minutes from the pre-season meeting in September, then distribute the minutes to the teams.

Arrange, attend, and take minutes from the AGM in April, and deal with any proposals received from the teams.
And in a typical year, that’s it.
If you, or somebody you know, would like to do their bit for the League, please get in touch with Colin Dormer, or Mike Callar and we’ll answer any questions you have.

Many thanks

The Wealden League


The Wealden League was formed in 1990, and has been running ever since, with a short gap for Covid-19.

It is a competition for Short Mat Bowls Club teams in East Sussex, and all teams and players must be registered with the East Sussex Short Mat Bowls Association, which in turn means that they must be registered with the English Short Mat Bowls Association.

The League runs on a weekly basis between October and March, and teams play each other on a home and away basis. Currently we have two divisions, with promotion and relegation at the end of each season.

Each match comprises two triples games and two pairs games, and requires 10 players over two mats. Most (but not all) matches are played on weekday evenings.
