Grangeway Indoor Bowling League Constitution
The Grangeway Indoor Bowling League will play in accordance with the rules as set out by the
“English Short Mat Bowling Association” a copy of which can be found on the internet at
WWW.ESMBA.CO.UK. A hard copy of these rules will be procured and held by the President of
the League for consultation if required.
In addition to the ESMBA rules, the following Grangeway Specific rules will apply
1. A match (evening) will consist of 6 singles, and 3 doubles games.
2. Practice will only be allowed on the mat allocated for your game (as per the ESMBA rules).
3. Singles games will be played over 10 ends. Doubles games will be played over 9 ends.
4. 2 points will be awarded for each winning game, and a further 2 points awarded for the best
aggregate (except for rule 8).
5. Declaration of players. Each Team Captain will have at least two singles names written on
the team sheet prior to the initial exchange of names (declaration). Declaration of players
will always be made at least one game in advance, meaning that the both teams are aware
of who will be playing the next game.

6. If a game is drawn, points will be split (1 point to each team).
7. If the aggregate points are drawn, points will be split, 1 point to each team (except for rule 8
and rule 12).
8. The league winners each season, will be handicapped the following season by only being
awarded 1 point (rather than 2) if they should win the aggregate for the match, meaning that
they can only achieve a maximum score of 19 points per match rather than the usual
maximum of 20. If the aggregate is drawn, they will be awarded zero points, with the
opposing team being awarded 1 point.
9. Measures / Tapes. One “non-playing, able bodied” member from each team will be called
onto the mat to measure and declare the winning wood (woods). Players must vacate the
mat during the measure. If the two nominated team members asked to measure cannot
reach an agreement with regard to the winning wood, the end will be marked as a “no end”
and scored as 0-0.
10. Number of people per team. Teams will normally consist of at least 6 members. However up
to 12 players can play for a team during any match (6 in the singles & 6 in the doubles).
11. If a team is short of players, they can borrow one non-playing ''registered'' player (per team) from any of the other teams (other than the opposing team on the night), to make up the 6th player. No player will be allowed to
play for two teams on the same night.
12. Under strength teams. If a team can only muster 5 players, the player with the worst
differential score will be allowed to play in the 6th singles game. If this player should win,
they will only be awarded a single point (not the usual 2) as they have played two games.
With regard to the Doubles, the player with the 2nd worst differential score will be allowed to
play in 2 doubles games. It they should win the second game, once again they will only be
awarded 1 point as they have played two doubles games.

If a team can only muster 4 players, the two players with the worst differential singles score
will be allowed to play twice. If they should win the second singles game they will only be
awarded a single point. Only two doubles games will be played with the non-game being
scored as 15-0 to the full strength team.
If a team can only muster 3 players then each of these players will be allowed to play two
single games. If they should win the 2nd game they will only be awarded a single point.
With regard to the doubles, the player with the worst differential singles score will be allowed
to play in two doubles games. If they should win the 2nd doubles game they will only be
awarded a single point. The 3rd doubles (non-game) will be scored as 30-0 to the full
strength team.
In short, any player (the player with the worst differential score) playing in a second singles
or doubles game will only be awarded a single point for a win. In the event that two players
have the same worst differential score, the opposing Captain will be allowed to select the
player. In the event of a draw a single point will be awarded to the full strength team with
half a point being awarded to the player that has played twice.
Any team that has played a player twice (singles or doubles) will only be entitle to a single
point, should they win the aggregate (except for rule 8 when Zero points will be awarded)
Teams that do not turn up for a match (for whatever reason). As from the start of the
2011/12 season, points will be allocated as zero (00) points for the team that don’t turn up,
and 14 points to the team that do or could have turned up (except for rule 8).
13. From the start of the 2013/14 season, the Chair will have the authority to call off or abandon matches (nights) for whatever reasonable reason without having to consult the teams for a vote.
The result of any abandoned matches will be calculated as the aggregate score from the results of the other games played between the said teams in the season.
14. From the start of the 2013/14 season monthly rather than weekly subscriptions will be introduced. The season will run over 25 weeks ( 6 months ). A monthly subscription of £32 per team per month was agreed upon at the AGM which will result in an income of £1,152.00 against a predicted expenditure of circa £1,100.00. Subscriptions will be due on the third Friday of the month.

15. Registration of players. Each team Captain will register his/her players prior to them playing at the start of the season and submit the registration form to the Chair for collation. Additional players can be registered ( on the night if necessary ) throughout the course of the season. Teams will not be limited on the number of players they have signed on. Any player wishing to change teams will be entitled to one transfer per season.
16. Outdoor footwear to be removed before treading onto the carpets. Clean flat footwear to be
worn to tread on carpets. No heels or ridges.
17. Mat’s away. If mat’s 1 & 2 finish first, the mats must be put away into the stage storage
draw. They are not to be left for the final team to finish to put away.
18. With immediate effect. All teams are to report the night's final result to Pete Snelson at Allbutacross before 12 noon the next day. Results can be phoned or text to Pete on 07740 995 775 or emailed to allbutacross@talktalk.net   A fine of £1 per team can be awarded to teams for results not submitted before noon on the Saturday. Payment of fine to be collected on the next league night.
19. Drawn positions (points) at end of season. If points are draw between two or more teams at
the end of the season, a head to head count back will be made to determine the final
position (ranking). The count back will look at the head to head matches won (each team
plays each other 3 times per season). If still drawn a count back on the number of games
won will be made. If still drawn a count back on the number of chalks won will be made.
20. Rule changes. Request’s for changes of the above rules must be submitted to the
committee in writing. The committee will be allowed to comment on any suggested rule
changes, which will then be put to the teams to vote. Each team will have one vote, and a
majority (currently 5 to 3) in acceptance of the change will be required for any changes to be
adopted into the rules
New Rules agreed 2015/16 season were....
  a) Matches not completed (for any reason). The score for any completed and undisputed games will stand as the final result. 

          b) If a player shows aggressive or threatening behaviour to another person then at the discretion of the team captains,             

        or an adjudication committee as appointed by the chair,
   that person may be suspended for a number of matches (depending on the severity of the behaviour).

                    c) If in the event of a dispute on the card then the score at the last time the scores could be agreed would stand

           and the remainder of the end left to be completed would be played.

     IE, if the disputed score occurred on end 8 then the last two ends would be played, even if the last check was agreed at an earlier end in the game.
