Q. Do I need to enter results using BowlsNet?
A. Results are entered via BowlsNet, either by captains or the
League Secretary - that is up to you. You have four other ways
to submit your match results all listed under Results Reporting
on this website.
Q. So Captains must have Internet Access now?
A. Again absolutely not. A captain with no Internet access has
several options. The first is to post their results to the League
Secretary in the traditional manner or use one of the other
three methods of submitting results listed on
Results Reporting. There is
also the option to assign the
task of updating BowlsNet to
another member of their team to do it on their behalf.
Q. But the Fixture Secretary doesn't get to see the
signed Match sheet?
A. Pressing the Confirm
this is a true and accurate record button is
the electronic version of the Captain's signature, and both
Captains must verify the result is correct.
Q. What if a Captain goes to enter a result but can't
find a player in the drop-down lists.
A. A player will only be listed if they have been registered and
are marked as eligible for the relevant team. You must
contact the League Secretary to add new bowler registrations. He
will ask you for the player names and BCGBA number and date of
birth. You can still submit that result by entering the player
and then contact your League Secretary, who may choose to add
the player or decide that the player is not eligible and a
walk-over needs entering instead.
Q. What if a Captain goes to Verify a
result but finds it to be inaccurate.
A. Only the League Secretary can change a result once it has
been entered and verified. Contact him with the details.
Q. Are paper copies still required?
A. Only for your records. Many clubs still use the old Result
Cards for this purpose and these are still available free of
charge from the League Secretary.
Q. Are there security concerns with regard to captains
or clubs tampering with results?
A. No. The Verification Process ensures that Captains only enter
results they are absolutely happy with. Once verified, results
cannot be changed or edited (apart from by the League
Secretary). Results that have not been verified will always
remain highlighted in Orange so they cannot be missed.
