End of the season

End of the season is here, the green closed on Saturday. In spite of the dreaded Covid19 we have had a really good half season of bowling. Our Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday afternoon and Friday evening roll up sessions have been very well attended and I think, enjoyed by every one who participated. We have also managed to organize a restricted club competition program ( superbly managed by our Club Captain Trevor Oakey) which ran from August through September with finals weekend being held 26/27 September.

Due to the present situation we extended the closing of the green by one week to Saturday    3rd October but also included on this day were the “Presidents Day” and “Presentation Day”. Presidents Day raises money for the Presidents chosen charity which is “The Stroke Unit”  Queen Elizabeth Hospital and in spite of the weather over £300 was raised on the day, well done to all club members who attended or donated.

Congratulations to all who competed in the competitions.                                                               The retiring President (Lesley Stringer) and the President 2020/2021 (Geoff Upton) presented the trophies to the winners of the club competitions we managed to hold this year, the winners were as follows.


2 Bowl Singles – Audrey Porter.  4 Bowl singles – Linda Oakey.                                                        Pairs – Audrey Porter & Marian Upton.


2 Bowl Singles – Geoff Bonnick.  4 Bowl Singles – Geoff Bonnick.                                                    Pairs – Alan Clarke & Geoff Upton.


Open 2 Bowl Singles – David Mitchell.  Mixed Pairs – Helen Young & Geoff Upton

So we look forward to next years bowling (hopefully we will be back to some sort of normal) so the opening of the green will be Saturday 10th April 2021.

Stay safe every one and we will see you next year.
