  • The event will be sectional play with 3 players per section. The player with the bye will be required to mark. Markers will be provided for all post-sectional games.
  • Singles – four bowls, 2 sets of nine ends with a three end tie-breaker played if required to reflect the format of the national competition.
  • One trial end in each direction will be allowed for all games.
  • Respotting the Jack: As per law 56.5 in the Laws of the Sport of Bowls, there will be no dead ends. Instead, the jack will be re-spotted in accordance with Law 56.5.3 (that is, with the nearest point of the jack to the mat line at a spot on the rink which is 2 metres from the front ditch and on the centre line) and play should continue.
  • Tiebreaker – The winner of the tiebreaker will be the player with the highest number of shots when the third end is completed. If shot scores are tied after the third end, players must play a fourth tie breaker to decide the winner.
  • First to Play – First end – toss of a coin – the winner can place the mat or advise their opponent to place the mat. Second set – winner of the first set must place the mat.   If the first set is a draw, the winner of the last scoring end must place the mat. First and fourth end of a tie-breaker – toss of a coin.  The winner can place the mat or advise their opponent to place the mat.
  • The Controlling Authority reserves the right to re-draw the competition to avoid byes and to fill up sections etc in the event of withdrawals after the draw has been done.  
  • In the event of there being a bye in a section, the winner of that section will not be given a bye in post sectional play.
  • The sectional play draw will be generated at random using BowlsLink.   The draw for post-sectional play and finals will be generated at random ensuring that any winners of a section that contains a bye will not be given a bye in post sectional play.
