Every Wednesday night through the year we run an alternate format bowls game. 2-4-2 starts at 7pm every week and finishes around 9pm. The teams are decided by pick a stick.
Each end, the players who start the end play 2 bowls each, then go to the head. The players, who started at the head, now play 4 bowls each before returning to the head. The players, who started the end, now play theirremaining 2 bowls. This means that the “leads” start every odd end and the “skips” start every even end.
