The Senior Merit is the pinnacle of Shropshire Bowls. It has been played for since 1913 and the winner receives the Charles Beddard Trophy. There are qualifiers in Shrewsbury, Telford and Whitchurch which produce a finals day of 32 to be played at a venue chosen by the year's County President on the last Sunday of June. The four semi finalists qualify for the British Senior Individual Merit Finals on Saturday 27th July at Rolls Royce at 10 a.m.
Details for 2021 will be posted early in the new year.
