Wellington Ex-Services Skittles League

Results, stats and info for the Wellington Ex-Services Skittles League

                                League History

The league in it's present guise was formed during the Second World War, although there was a Wellington League which was formed in1911 and ran for several seasons. (see cutting).

To this day some teams still retain their war time names, Home Guard 2 and 4, Wardens, Fireguard A, Reservists, Ex-Servicemen, United Services and Report Centre A for example.

The league is one of the oldest in Somerset and over the course of many years it has raised nearly £23,000 for various charities.
