Pennant Side Listings for Season 2021/22
The MBA is pleased to release initial Pennant Side Listings for Season 2021/22.
The side listings are available on the MBA web site here
There were not enough sides nominated for Thursday Division 4 (2 rink) to make a viable competition so we have had discussions with all the clubs involved to find an alternative solution. The end result is that some of the clubs have found sufficient players to make up to a 3 rink side while others have joined with another club to make up a combined 3 rink side. These sides have been added
to Division 3. We thank these clubs for their assistance and understanding.
We currently have 31 sides in Division 3 (with a bye). If any club has additional players and wants to nominate a 3 rink side to replace that bye please contact us as soon as possible (email@example.com).
Side Listings and the Draw
As in past years there are likely to be some changes to the draws before the start of the season. These occur because Clubs advise us of the addition or withdrawal of sides, but this normally only affects a few Sections. We recommend that clubs wait a week or two before producing and distributing schedules for their sides.
Where clubs have more than one side in a Division, these sides are ranked in descending order of ability and are designated Red, White and Blue, with Red being the primary side. For Clubs in this situation, Match & Program Committee has allocated ranking colours based on the advice received from clubs in season 2020/21. If any Club wishes to change the ranking order of those sides, they need to advise us in writing (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Thursday 30th of September 2021.
