Following approval at both indoor (ladies & men's) AGM's and a joint meeting on Thursday, September 28th, the ladies and men's indoor committee's have now amalgamated to form a single bowls committee which will henceforth be known as Preston Indoor Bowls Committee. Separate ladies and men's sub committee's will be raised as required to discuss any relative issues and will then report to the joint committee for full discussion. The joint committee is formed of the following officers: Howard Funnell (Hon. Secretary), Jackie Ward (Ladies Captain), Trevor Vine (Men's Captain), Hazel Wells (Ladies Vice-Captain), Roy Gibbs (Men's Vice-Captain & Mid-Week Captain), Carolyne McCann (Ladies Competition Secretary), Ron Tomlin (Men's Competition Secretary), Phil Bell (Fixture Secretary). Other members may be co-opted as required.
Due to the (sometimes) difficulty of raising teams to play in friendly matches, the committee has approved for the 23/24 season that players who make themselves available for National & County Competitions (but excluding County League), should also make themselves available to play in a minimum of 2 friendly games during this season. There will be no guarantee of selection as preference would normally be given to those on the 'progression ladder'. It should be noted that income from friendly games not only keeps subscription and match fees down but also helps to fund the travel expenses etc for County and National games. For the 24/25 indoor season, selection for County & National games will be restricted to those players who have played in a minimum of 2 friendly games.
