In line with developoments at National and County levels, Syston Bowling Club is currently actively investigating the feasibility of total unification of currently separate Men's and Ladies' Sections. January 2018 has been set as a provisional target date for the completion of this process - subject to approval by the membership in General Meeting. An Extra-ordinary General Meeting is to be called for Friday 1st December 2017 to decide the issue.
CLUB STRUCTURE & CONSTITUTION
Founded originally in 1932 (with the Ladies’ Section one year later) Syston Bowling Club is now formally incorporated at Companies House as a not-for-profit Company Limited by Guarantee (Company Registration Number : 6495115). This means that it has no shareholders and issues no dividends and that all Directors and Committee Members work on an honorary, voluntary basis (but may re-claim any authorised out-of-pocket expenses incurred.) In the event that the Club should be wound up, any residual assets would have to be passed on to another Club or Company having similar aims and objectives or to a Charity. Every Member is entitled to a single vote at General Meetings of the Club.
Within the limits set down in the Memorandum and Articles of Association, the Club operates two largely self-administering Sections - Men’s and Ladies. Under the direction of the Board of the Club (which is elected annually by the whole membership at the Annual General Meeting), each Section elects its own Committees and sets its own rules for admission to membership and for competitions. Each Section maintains its own set of accounts.
In 2008, following registration as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC), the Club became formally committed to being open to all members of the community, irrespective of sex, age, ethnicity, creed or ability.
