Games are played on Saturdays. The matches start Dec 1 and are played weekly on Saturdays until Feb 1. Because of the tight time frame of the league, games should only be rescheduled because of rain. They cannot be rescheduled because of player unavailability. Teams would need to ensure that they have sufficient back up players able to fill in as necessary. If clubs would prefer to play the match during the week or on Sunday it is alright if both clubs can agree to a change. Playing on Saturday is not mandatory except for the playoffs.
Generally, 6-7 players are needed to support a 4-person team (illness or injury, vacations etc.). There must be at least 4 people signed up on each team’s roster. Only players on the roster can be skips or participate in singles matches.
Substitutes cannot be skips or play singles. Silver team members can also substitute for a club’s Gold team. Substitutes can be made between the morning and afternoon games.
The format for the games is pairs in the morning session and triples and singles in the afternoon session. Typically the 4 bowlers are the same for morning and afternoon sessions, but it doesn’t have to be that way. The bottom line is that a team must provide 4 bowlers per session.
