Management & Bowling Committees to merge

Following a unanimous vote at the Special General Meeting held at the club on Monday 20th November 2017, the two committees will be merged into one from 2018. As positions on both committees are, for the most part, filled by the same people this move will speed up the decision-making process whilst reducing the call on delegates’ time to attend meetings.

Following on from the vote, nomination sheets for club posts in 2018 were put up on the notice board in the club foyer and members are encouraged to propose representatives ahead of the Annual General Meeting which will be held at the club on Tuesday 5th December 2017 starting 7:00 p.m. All members are urged to attend.

2018 Afternoon & Evening Triples Leagues Registration

All members wishing to take part in either or both of these leagues next season are reminded that registration sheets are posted on the Triples Leagues’ notice board and members should add their names at the earliest opportunity in order to assist organisers with their planning. It is hoped to have the same size leagues in 2018 as 2017 but that can only happen if there is sufficient interest.

If you do not wish to participate every week but would be willing to be added to a panel of substitutes who can be called on should a team find themselves in need of a player then please add your name and indicate that.

Get on the green! – Open Day 2017

‘Get on the Green!’ Highworth Bowls Club is inviting visitors to its Open Day on Saturday 13th May 2017, from around 10:30am to 3:00pm.

If you’ve ever thought about trying lawn bowling, here’s your chance to get a ‘taster’ bowling session on the Highworth green. No need to book – just turn up on the day, and our members will be happy to show you the Club and talk to you about membership.

Of course, you don’t have to bowl to be a member of Highworth Bowls Club. Our clubhouse and bar is open throughout the year for our social and bowling members – after bowling throughout the summer, we play short mat bowls, crib, and league skittles throughout the winter – and new members are most welcome.

Members: remember to ‘bring a friend’..
