GUIDE TO THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF BEING A SIDE SELECTOR
The bowls committee has reviewed and updated the selectors manual that provides the principles and requirements to be followed by the selectors appointed to select our pennant sides. It also sets out the responsibilities of members and their rights to respectfully discuss genuine grievances arising out of the selection process. The review has considered what was learnt last year when selection panels, instead of single-side selectors, were appointed, for the first time, to each select a cluster of sides. The panel approach has been carried through to this coming year. Also carried through from last year is the feedback slip on player performance in each match. This is a key element, among others, to help selectors on the panels make informed and objective decisions. Two significant changes have been adopted to make the job of filling out the slips simpler and to give more complete information to the selectors. This coming season, a simpler 1-2-3 rating option will be used, and, to get more complete information, every player will be asked to fill out a slip and rate all team members other than themselves.

Pennant Season 2016-17
BOWLS SA PENNANT CHANGES
BOWLS SA through its Match and Program committee has made considerable changes to the structure of the pennant program for 2016/17. Note the board of BOWLS SA has fully endorsed the changes to the program.
SATURDAY OPEN PENNANT
The competition has been strengthened by the merger of the Major North and South divisions to form one division to be known as DIVISION 1. The rest of the Sides from Major North and South will play in one division to be known as DIVISION 2. The Premier division and divisions 1 and 2 will play 25 ends, with no afternoon tea break.
The top twenty Sides from Metro 1 North, South, East and West, after promotions and demotions have been applied from the 2015/16 season, will play in two divisions to be known as DIVISION 3 North and South.
The next division, of forty Sides, will be known as DIVISION 4 North, South, East and West.
The above divisions from Premier to division 4 will all play end of season top four Sides play offs to determine divisional winners and runners-up and therefore promotions if Sides are eligible.
The new division 5 will also have the North, South, East and West set up with forty Sides.
All the above divisions will have 16 players per Side.
Divisions 6 and 7 will be determined from the entries received from all Clubs when nominating Sides for 2016/17. These Sides will be 12 players per Side.
Afternoon tea breaks will be at 2.45pm for divisions 3 to 7.
Tranmere will probably have Sides in division 1, division 3, division 4 x 2, division 5 x 2 and division 6. We would have the option to enter another Side in division 6 if we have the player numbers to do so.
WEDNESDAY MEN’S PENNANT
Wednesday pennants to commence earlier – Trial ends to commence at 12.15pm – 45 minutes earlier. The objective to avoid some peak hour traffic conditions with the earlier finish.
As with Saturday, a Premier division and the merger of the Major North and South divisions to create a division 1 with 10 Sides. Then division 2 with twenty Sides into North and South divisions.
The Premier, divisions 1 and 2 will player the five rink format of fours x 2, triples x 2 and pairs x 1.
Division 3 will consist of forty Sides, playing in North, South, East and West divisions. Playing fours with sixteen players per Side.
The above divisions will play end of season top 4 Sides finals to determine pennant winners and runners-up and promotions if Sides are eligible.
Division 4 playing in North, South, East and West divisions with twelve players per Side.
Division 5 with as many divisions to accommodate the number of Sides entered from Clubs. Playing twelve players per Side.
All divisions will have a tea break to be taken at 2.00pm.
Tranmere will probably have Sides in Premier, division 1, division 2, division 3, divisions 4 and 5.
THURSDAY WOMEN’S PENNANT
Again a merger of the Major North and South divisions to create a division 1 consisting of ten Sides.
Then a division 2 with North and South divisions.
The above divisions will play end of season top four Sides play offs to determine divisional winners and runners-up and therefore promotions if Sides are eligible.
Division 3 will probably have three divisions of between ten to twelve Sides each.
All Sides to be of 12 players per Side.
Division 4 will have two divisions with only eight players per Side.
All matches playing fours of 21 ends per team. 30 minute break at 11.30am
Tranmere will probably have Sides in Premier and divisions 2, 3 and 4.
