The first Two Months fixtures have been prepared to start on Thursday 8th October, based on a 3 Wood Pairs Competition.

The matches will be played over 14 ends, no trial ends.

Additional matches are scheduled for Mondays to give more games for more players.

This will be reviewed monthly with any changes necessary due to COVID restrictions.

Up to 6 players are now permitted for organised indoor sport. This could change BUT at present the Isle of Wight League remains as Pairs.

The Bar will be table service only.
