MWM Autumn 2024 - Promotional material

We are seeking your support to extend awareness of our competition to more clubs and more players, especially those semi-retired or retired, irrespective of their age or ability. As you know, we have many 80 year old’s playing in our lower sections and welcome lots more to join us and share the special fellowship.

Please share any of the promotional material below with your members via newsletters, your website and noticeboard.


Any questions about how the competition runs can be found in the Guidelines, issued January 2024

We have unfortunately neglected our 80+ year old players in 2020 & 2021 is this yet another example of elders abuse!! in that we have not honoured new members of the group with public presentation of certificates.

We have new members Ken Mitchell & Charles Cattermole in this group and there are several more, whose names have not been noted. Could all Captains find a moment to check on this subject and advise by email, if they have new qualifiers in their team. We will arrange public presentation of certificates at the next available opportunity.


Hopefully, some of you have used the plastic covered sheet.

There is concern that it is prone to smudging but we have not received any feedback.
Anyone liking the idea & willing to experiment may like to try non water-based pen [they dry quicker on plastic] but then do not erase with damp [water] cloth. They do however erase with methylated spirits, but this complicates the process.

Any retired or 'budding' chemists with suggestions??

As previously indicated we do have paper score books available if you want one let us know if you require one.


A reminder to check these documents for errors & updates. If like some, you have cancelled your home landline, please advise if it is in either document.


When entering results if you find any error in player names please SMS or E-mail Neil Armstrong [details on Fixture & Captains/Sub-Committee Listing]. We like to have these correct.

Should you discover after lodging match results that there was an error in the match results, please follow this procedure > Contact opposing Captain & agree on the correction, then jointly email Neil Armstrong to have correction made.

You don't have to wait until you get home to enter your results. TROLS has a mobile version available to check your next match, the ladder, your team's results, and it also allows you to enter your match scores. You can get your scores entered before you've finished your enjoyable light lunch.

The TROLS moble link is https://www.trols.org.au/wdta/mobile.php It's not an app, it is a mobile-friendly web page, so you don't have to download anything.


It is recognised that with an absence of byes in all sections but one, there is a restriction on obtaining emergencies. Be aware of paragraphs A & E of the current Guidelines as part of avoiding being seen to have unfairly strengthened your team when using an emergency.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
