Under-25 Merit & Dixon Driscoll Doubles Looming

Bowring will host this year's Under-25 Merit on Saturday 15th June with a 6pm start time.

As usual it is enter on the night with the title having been won last year by Sam Millward of Newport.

League comps chief Phil King is now taking entries for this year's Dixon Driscoll Doubles - to be played all on Saturday 29th June.

Entries this year cost £10 per pair with 90% of the income to be paid out n prize money and 10% going to the junior prize fund.

Start time is 10am - but there could well be a change to the format this year as the date clashes with semi-finals night in the Shropshire senior inter-league, which features the MSBL A team.

So Phil may try and find a two green venue and play the comp straight through - rather than having qualifiers and then a beak before heading to a new finals venue for the last eight.

This would allow any members of the MSBL A squad who want to play in the doubles the chance to do so, before heading to a neutral venue for the inter-league tie that starts at 7pm.
