2019 Edinburgh Cup – Venue Change

Please note the 2019 Edinburgh Cup has had to make a venue change.

This will now take place at Tanfield BC at 2pm on 17th August.

This morning President Stevie Kirk, officials from Whitehouse & Grange BC and with consultation from green contractor regrettably inform the EBL committee that the playing surface has taken severe water damage from the recent and ongoing weather we have experienced. This has been compounded by a collapsed storm drain nearby adding to the complications.

Whilst every effort had been made to mitigate this situation the difficult decision was made as everyone wishes to have the game played in the best conditions possible.

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation with this decision and would like you to share as widely as you can.

We also hope to see a large support for what should be a great game, however if you cannot make it along to Tanfield BC please keep an eye on the live scores : https://edinburghbowlingleague.com/edinburgh-cup/
