    Cup Matches 2023.
    The Dates of the Cup Matches for 2023 have been changed as follows:- Divisions 1 & 2 are as per last season, i.e. 20th/27th March and 4th/11th September. However, for Divisions 3 to 6 inclusive the dates are as follows:- Prelim Round 3rd April, First Round 10th April, Semi-Finals 19th June and Finals are on 26th June. Instead of having the Cup Match rounds in the LAST two weeks in each half of the season as usual, the Cup Matches are now in the FIRST two weeks in each half of the season. The League has now two teams playing opposite two teams playing in the Preston and District Bowling League. In order to alleviate any clashes between these teams, the fixtures had to be arranged in this way. Please also note that the reverse fixtures in the sceond half DO NOT correspond week by week in the first half as in previous years.
