In the ILB Winter League many members of grass green clubs pay winter membership fees to synthetic green clubs and participate as part of a team under the name of their parent or their winter club. Others who don’t pay membership fees pay a green fee to the winter club each time they roll up or play a match there. These arrangements between host clubs and guest clubs are a matter entirely for the clubs involved and have nothing to do with the ILB.
As the All Weather Bowling League agreed to transfer their funds to the ILB we have agreed that there will be no entry fees for any club or team for this year’s Winter League.
However we have received complaints that some clubs are charging visiting teams €5 per person. The ILB Management Committee feel this practice is unwarranted and shouldn’t continue.
