Please note the rules regarding balls

In the veterans and handicap events, if one pair is shown with a red B, they provide the balls. Otherwise the rule is as below…

a. Both opponents should bring an unopened can of 4 balls of recognised championship quality to their match.
b. By spinning, they decide which balls to use.
c. At the end of the match, the winner gets the unopened can of balls to use for the next match and the loser keeps the balls used for the match.
d. Balls are available from Richard McCully for £4.00 a tube.

In round robin events, used balls from the clubhouse may be used as long as all players agree.
