INTER COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP
Cornwall’s Inter County Championship campaign gets under way on Saturday with both the Premier and A teams in action against Devon at Bodmin’s Dragon Leisure Centre.
Each team consists of 20 players, 2 singles, 2 pairs, 2 triples and 2 fours who each play two games during the match. Places in the squad have been awarded following recent trials and squad practice days held at the Dragon Centre. Each game is worth 2 points and when combined with the bonus points makes a total of 40 available for each match. All points scored over the course of the six group games count towards the final position in the league table.
The match gets underway at around 11am and this will be the first time that Cornwall have played a match under the new competition format which see the Singles and Pairs playing in sessions 1 & 3 and Triples and Fours in sessions 2 & 4. In another revision to the rules for this season the 4 bonus points for most shots scored in the match are replaced by 2 points for the most shots in each of the four disciplines.
