Short Mat Players Tour dates: 2015-2016

We are pleased to confirm the following SMPT dates for the 2015-2016 season.  Entries for these events will open on the dates as listed below. Once again, from March until September, the 1st day of each month will see the opening of entries to a different competition. This schedule ensures all bowlers have an equal opportunity to enter each of our events. In addition, it allows those that enter multiple events to spread those costs over an extended period.
