The summer skittle season begins at the end of March and concludes in October although the presentation night takes place in November. There are three main competitions at stake; the league, the John Pegg knockout cup and the ledger, however other competetions exist so that other teams have a chance of winning something, these competitions being the invitation cup, the legerette and the ledger base. In additions there are a two-a-side, a three-a-side competition and a whack up trophy for men and women. When all skittles are knoked down with the first two cheeses, this is called a whack up.

Finally, there is a special prize for anyone who throws a nine-in-a-ball, this has occured on avera. The league is currently sponsored by Bass Brewers.er s
The John Pegg Knock Out Cup
This was named after a staunch supporter of this league and who sadly passed away away two years or so ago. The knock out cup has been in existance since the league was formed in 1995. Rules; as always each side must have a minimum of four women in its line up, must consist of twelve players, each teams order of throwing is of it's captains choosing, best of five legs, one point per leg, half a point for a tied leg, all twelve players to throw in each leg, and their total scores to determine which team wins each leg.
First Round, Eight teams compete, the two remaing teams to receive a bye.
Second Round, The four winning teams plus the two teams who received a bye, to compete. The three winners to go through to the final and the losers to compete in the Invitation Cup. (Consolation cup)
The Final, Five legs to be played and in each leg, the team scoring the greatest total will gain three points, the second highest team will get two points and the third team will gain just one point. Teams tieing with the greatest total will get three points but if its a tie with the seocnd highest score they will get two points each.
At the end of the five legs the team with the most number of points shall be the winner.
The Invitation Cup
Rules are exactly the same as the John Pegg Cup, this competition is really a consolation cup for the losers of the second round of the John Pegg Cup.The competition began in 1997.
In skittling terms, ledger means accumulation and consistancy. The four top teams of the ledger league qualify for the final. However in order that all teams can play in a final of some sort, the qualification rules have been adjusted.
At the end of the league season, the sides finishing in the top three places will qualify for the ledger final. Teams thats finish in positions four to seven inclusive will compete in the ledgerette and the bottom three teams will take part in the ledgerbase.
League match scores to count only, the third leg scores of the twelve-a-side format to be recorded, each week the 3rd leg score will be added to the previous weeks 3rd leg scores, should teams end the season with the same tally, then the side involved in the tie that has recorded the highest 3rd leg twelve-a-side score will attain the higher final placing.
The objective is to accumulate as high as score as possible in each of the five legs. Each score in the respective five legs will be added to give an accumulative tally. Winning a particular leg is not the prime objective.
Rules; A minimum of four women per team, each team starts with a nil scoreline, order of play to be drawn out of a 'hat', at the end of the 3rd leg each captain can alter his/her teams compostion but not it's line up, at the end of the five legs, the team with the highest total score shall be declared the winner.
In the event of a tie three names of players of the teams involved to be drawn out of a 'hat' and play a three legged accumulative score ledger. Should there be a further tie then two names of other players of the teams involved to be drawn out of a 'hat' and play a three legged accumulative ledger. Should there be a further tie then one name of other players who have not been involved to be drawn and play a three legged accumulative scoree ledger. This one player process to continue until a winner has been found.
