INTRODUCTION

The Past Times Men's and Ladies outdoor competitions are the successors to those originally run for several years by the Times Herald newspaper. A brief history of the competitions can be viewed by clicking here.

S&DBA have undertaken to act as custodians of these popular competitions and continue the excellent work previously carried out by Mike & Jean Colvin.  The format of both competitions remains unchanged and the nett proceeds from the competition entry fees will continue to be donated each season to a worthwhile UK-focused charity which will be nominated at the start of each season.  In the years 2016 to 2018 we donated over £1000 to locally focused charities.

Both competitions will retain their unique 'Past Times' identity and will not be governed by the Constitution and Rules of the S&DBA.  Rather, they will be run in accordance with their own Rules which are published below on this page. They will also retain their own Finals Day on which the Men's and Ladies Finals will be played simultaneously on the same green.

A listing of past Winners & Runners-Up recorded up to and including 2019 can be viewed by clicking here.

COMMUNICATIONS

Each competition will be run by a Competition Secretary who will be appointed each season by the S&DBA.

All communications with entrant clubs will be conducted through the applicable Past Times Competition Secretary, and will be exclusively by e-mail.    It is therefore essential that each season all entrant clubs provide the S&DBA on their completed entry form with at least 2 reliable club e-mail contacts via whom e-mail correspondence will be routed.

COMPETITION FORMAT

The competitions are run as separate Men's and Ladies knockout competitions played between club teams each comprising one rink of 4 players playing at 'Home' and one rink of 4 players playing 'Away' in each match, the combined 'Home' and 'Away' shots total to determine the match winners.

 

PLEASE NOTE - For 2021 only the format is - Triples, 3 woods, 18 ends, 1 rink home, 1 rink away
