The Wrington Vale Skittle League was formed in 1927 at a meeting held at Congresbury Memorial Hall. The first season comprised of nine teams – Congresbury, Wrington, Redhill, Burrington, Worle Village Club, Hewish, East Harptree, and Yatton some of which are still with us.
The League had been running consistently since that first season up until the Special Committee Meeting of September 11th 1939 where the minutes state that ‘Owing to the declaration of War, it was decided to cancel all fixtures and Cup Games’. The League restarted again on July 9th 1945 and has carried on until the Covid pandemic of 2019 when there was an 18 month break.

Final League Standings
The final Tables have been issued. Congratulations to the winners and runners up. A decision was taken that outstanding games would be treated as 5-5 draws.
Outstanding Postponed Games
As we approach the end of the season it is important to arrange those postponed games that are still outstanding. Don't wait until the last game - do it now please.
Thank you from Irene, Andrea and family
Andrea got in contact about her father Frank Ward who sadly passed away last year. Frank played for the Wrington Wanderers. Irene, Andrea and family want to pass on thanks from the bottom of their hearts to the Wrington Wanderer's players for their kind donation to Parkinson's.
The Committees intention is to pay prize money at the end of the season and to have promotions and relegations. This will involve moves to equalize the number of teams in the three divisions, but will need to be reviewed if there are significant numbers of unplayed postponed games.
Changes for the 2021/22 Season:
There will be no cup games this season.
Games will be played with 10 players on each side.
Games will be played in three sets. The first and second sets will have 3 players each side, and the last set will have 4 players each side.
Scoring will be as before – 2 points for each set and 4 points for the game, making a total of 10 points. Drawn sets 1 point each and drawn games 2 points each.
Both teams will observe whatever Covid recommendations are in force at the time of the match.
Redhill, Oddbods and Yeomen have withdrawn from the League.
Zulus have moved to Winscombe Cricket Club.
Gropers have moved to Redhill.
Harptree Handlers have moved to Bishop Sutton F.C.I.
