Guidelines for Markers

Score Card Administration
When the game has been completed, the marker must make sure that the score card:

  • contains the names and signatures of the players
  • contains the time at which the game was completed
  • is handed to the umpire or, if no umpire is present, is dealt with in line with the Conditions of Play.

Practice Makes Perfect!
Set up a jack and bowls and try to judge distances. Check them with a tape measure.
Set up a jack and bowls and carry out measures using all of your equipment (including wedges).
Mark as many games as you can to fine-tune your time management techniques.
