As the name implies, games in this league are played on Monday afternoons.
All members are eligible to put their names forward to play in this league which allows bowlers of all abilities to meet and play in a competitive but friendly atmosphere. In particular, it provides an opportunity for newcomers to get to know other members of the club. The cost is £5 per player.
There are usually ten teams, each comprising five/six bowlers. Rinks of four players are picked in such a way that all players in a team play the same number of games in a season.
Each team plays nine games throughout the season (i.e. against all the other teams). Two points are awarded for a win and one point for a draw. If there is no outright winner at the end of the season, a play-off game is arranged.
