Brian Martin Memorial Triples Competition

In addition to the above competitions we also hold the Brian Martin memorial Triples Competition. This is played over a single day, usually in August and is open to all Club members. Again the committee will seed all players participating and then the triples teams will be drawn at random.

Match Procedure

The draw for each of the competitions other than the Triples will be made by the Committee and then displayed on the notice board and the web-site with a completion date set against each round.

  • The top name(s) in the draw is the “Challenger(s)” and the bottom name(s) is(are) the“Opponent(s)”.
  • It is the responsibility of the Challenger(s) to book and offer 3 dates and times to the Opponent(s); these dates are to be over not less than a 2-week period and can be at any time the green is open and rinks are free but before the round completion date.
  • It is the responsibility of the Opponent(s) to let the Challenger(s) know when they are away on holiday or for any other reason and the Challenger should then take this into account when offering dates.
  • In the event that the match is not played on time then the Competitions Secretary will decide the way forward which may involve disqualification of either or both players involved.
  • For singles matches, it is the responsibility of the players concerned to arrange a marker.


All disputes that cannot be resolved between the players concerned shall be referred to the Competitions Secretary, whose decision will be final.
