SCOTTISH RANKING COMPETITIONS 2016
In 2015 Bowls Scotland introduced a new National Player Ranking System and after the initial pilot scheme we are inviting applications for the 2016 season. The National Player Ranking System will run the length of the outdoor season and the points system will reach across a spectrum of events giving more weight to higher finishing performances at major tournaments staged across Scotland.
The philosophy of the ranking system is to provide equal and just opportunity for bowlers across the country to earn ranking points with the highest ranked player, both male and female, to be crowned Scotland’s number one player for the year.
