Pennant Sides

For results/rules see either: or


The Bowls Committee reviewed and updated the Selectors’ Manual that outlines the principles and requirements to be followed by the selectors appointed to select our pennant sides. It also sets out the Members’ responsibilities and their rights to respectfully discuss genuine grievances arising out of the selection process. The review took into account what was learnt last year, both as direct feedback from selectors (via their respective chairpersons) and through the survey of club members, which achieved an excellent response rate. For a brief report on the survey responses, please refer to the June 2018 edition of the Tranmere Times.

The panel approach is again carried through to this coming year. Also carried through, is the feedback slip on player performance in each match, albeit with a five-level rating system and a modified process to enable a team view to be presented. This is a key element, among others, to help Panel Selectors make informed and objective decisions. Following many comments about the rostering off policy that too is slightly modified to bring every club member into contention, albeit adopting a practical approach to minimise compromising the competitiveness of any side while meeting the equity principle.
