- Please ensure all names are put down on the card in the same format which is First Initial and Surname e.g J Smith
- The Home Team is to send in a CLEAR Picture of the completed result card on the night of the game instead of just the result (This enables Individual Standings to be updated on a more regular basis)
2nd May 2016

Its almost time for the start of another exciting new Season of the Stroud Invitation Summer Darts League!
29th April 2016
So last night the AGM was held at The Fountain, we would like to thank everyone who turned up to listen to us and voice their opinions on matters as we really value your opinions. The Main decisions and changes for the year ahead are as followed:-
- The Format of Matches in Division 1 has changed from last season, Singles matches are now to return to 3 legs played and Pairs matches are now also 3 legs each (Play all 3) making Division 1 games now best of 27. Divisions 2 and 3 will remain the same as last year, 3 legs in Singles, 1 leg in each Pairs and best of 21.
- We will be bring in the Bust Back rule to all leagues from this season. So if you bust your score then you must return to your previous score before your turn
- As with last season, the Singles Knockout will be split into each Division, you can chose to move up to play in a higher Division Singles Knockout but you cannot drop down leagues. The Pairs will be kept all together the same as last season
- This Season we will be doing a most 180's award for each of the 3 Divisions, High Checkouts will be kept all together like previous years
- Although we try to avoid it, we understand that it may be unavoidable but to postpone a match, if forever reason you must postpone a match you must let us know as early as possible. Teams will not be able to claim games, there will be 2 free weeks placed into the season to accommodate re-arranged matches. If in exceptional circumstances the game is unable to be replayed, the decision as to what happens will rest with the League Secretaries to ensure a fair outcome.
- Once again we will be running the Individual Standings this year, however it has been a problem for years trying to get results cards returned promptly enough to update them regularly. So this year we would like all Captains/Teams to send a CLEAR picture of their completed scorecard, complete with scores, 180's, high checkouts and signatures to the number on the bottom of the Results Cards (Jay) the NIGHT of the match. You will then receive a confirmation text that the picture is acceptable and then there is no need to post the cards (but please keep them and hand them all in together on Finals Night or at the end of the season). If texting a picture will cost you money then you can always send the picture over whatsapp, email, or facebook.
- This year we had 26 teams enter the league and as we didn't want to turn teams away we have decided to make Division 3 a 10 team league. This will work with each team playing each other ONCE in the first half of the season. After each team has completed its 9 games, the League will be split into the top 5 teams (3A) and bottom 5 teams (3B), then each team will play each other team in their league once again making 14 games in total and tying into the other Divisions. We will do everything we can to ensure that each team has an equal number of home & away games when possible. Division 3 teams will be issued with a different fixture list spanning 9 leagues games and then will get a new fixture list with theirs games for the 2nd half of the season at the half way point in the league.
Fixture Lists, Rules Sheets and Results Cards will be issued in the near future to your Pubs/Clubs and the league will start on May 12th. In the meantime if you have any questions then please feel free to contact us.
24th April 2016
The deadline for Signing on forms to be returned is tomorrow, we have had a great response so far but we are still in need of a few more teams to ensure we have an even number of teams to fit into each league. So if you are a New Team wishing to enter/ know a potential new team or you think your Pub/Club could enter a 2nd team then Please contact us ASAP.
This Thursday is the AGM at the Fountain, we will release details of things we are going to be discussing early in the week so watch this space.
Summer Season 2016
So the new summer season is fast approaching, the signing on forms have been sent out and the AGM date has been set for 28th April at The Fountain, we are excited about the new season and welcoming back old teams as well as hopefully seeing some new teams join us. More details will be posted in the next few weeks but in the meantime feel free to like our Facebook Page.
Please would all teams send their forms back to us ASAP to we have a good idea of numbers for the new season and guaranteeing your place in the League
