News and Notices
 
1 week ago Divisions 1 2 3
Captains - please note that Keith Driver is now your secretary :)
1 week ago Division 5
4.20 have withdrawn from the league.
3 weeks ago Front-Pin Knockout
1st round draw has been made. Ties to be played by Sunday 2nd October.
All other teams in the competition have a bye.
1 month ago 2016/17 League Structure
It will be observed that the league has seen a harsh reorganisation in order to ensure there are 14 teams in each division for the coming season. This will mean that for the first time,there will be two 'byes' in all divisions. The fixture secretary is sorry to have to take this action - with many teams experiencing unexpected relegation; however this was the only fair way to ensure that all seven divisions have as much winter skittles as possible.

Competition Fees
The committee has decided that there will be no entry fee to individual competitions this year. A 'tip box' will be in place for skittlers to place monies on the night to cover the cost of the stickers only.

League and Competition Winners/Runners-up
The committee has decided that for the season 2016 /17, cash prizes only - will be awarded for all league and cup competitions. Individual (Including U23), mixed and open pair winners and runners up, will be given the option to have either personalised trophies or a monetary value. All prizes will be given out before prior to commencement of the Annual General Meeting.

Berkeley Skittles League Bash!
Presenting the nationally acclaimed tribute band HEROES plus comedian 'Buster' on Saturday 4th March 2017 at Hamfields Leisure. This will be Skittles League party night. Open to all registered skittlers £8 per ticket and non skittlers £10 per ticket. It is expected that this event will sell out quickly so watch the website for further details on how to purchase.
Any monies generated from the event (after costs) to be shared equally by the league and its nominated charity.

Looking for new pins or balls?

Try Skittles Pins and Balls.
Run by the former Secretary of the Stroud and District Skittles League, they use local resources to supply quality wooden pins and balls to teams and venues in BDSL, neighbouring leagues and to other leagues around the south west of England and Wales. They will also skim old skittles balls which may still have some ife in them.
