Club Competitions 2020



Based on the feedback from bowlers, it has been decided not to hold a triples competition as too many people were concerned about social distancing. Therefore we are running 4 Pairs leagues, and a singles knockout competition.


Pairs teams have been independently selected and a random draw made for the singles competition.


Please see the attached for details (copies will also be posted on the Club whiteboard, visible from outside and our Website


Any queries, please call or email Paul Barrow (email hidden; JavaScript is required)


Note that you can now use a measure and one person can use a pusher for your matches, the handles must be cleaned after use.


Kind regards

Proposal for Internal Competition

Recent changes to Government guidance on social distancing, and updated advice from Bowls England, means that we are now allowed to bowl with 5 others (on the same rink), not from the same household.


Based on this new guidance, and because many club members aren’t too interested in just a “roll up”, the Management Committee are considering running some friendly competitions in the form of a pairs/triples league(s) and possibly a singles competition to spark some interest.


With regards to the triple’s leagues, some people may be concerned about the number of people milling around with regards to social distancing, therefore please indicate your willingness to participate if these were triples, not pairs leagues.


The suggestions are:


Afternoon comp

Every Monday and/or Friday from 2pm – 4pm.


Evening comp

Every Tuesday and/or Thursday from 6pm to 8pm (to accommodate those that are still working)


Team selection would be a weighted selection, by senior club members, based on perceived abilities.


In addition, it has been suggested that we run a mixed singles knockout competition


ALL GAMES WILL BE SUBJECT TO CURRENT RULES/GUIDELINES e.g. NO measuring, no ‘pushers’, no scoreboards, social distancing, etc


Please indicate your interest and preferences BEFORE 22nd June 2020 to:

Sponsors’ Night Event

Monday 1st July saw the club’s sponsors have an opportunity to visit the club and give a short presentation to attending club members about the products and services they offered. Hilliers, Asset Guardian and Franklin Memorials took the opportunity to attend and, following on from their individual presentations, took questions from the floor and made themselves available for one to one sessions with any members wishing to learn more from a personal perspective.

Despite a disappointing turn-out, the evening went very well. A big thanks to both our attending sponsors and our Management Committee for organizing the event.
