INFORMATION
2019 GENERAL INFORMATION


Our Summer 2019 season is upon us. The below information is due to be updated as soon as all of the competition are sorted out.

We hope to welcome several new members this year and they include both new and experienced bowlers to the game.

We intend to include short periods of training on Tuesday afternoons and it is hoped that all members will appreciate the need to gain a greater knowledge of our game of Lawn Bowls to further that enjoyment. Remember to familiarise yourselves with our 'housekeeping' procedures concerned with the laying out and collection of equipment at the start and end of play/practice.

Anyone who still wants to play in our own club competitions, please ensure that your names have been entered on the board so that all can be considered. Remember that matches should be completed by the dates shown!


MEMBERSHIP

Membership is open to all. Our 2019 subscription is £80. Social membership is £25.

Junior membership is available to under 18s and is free. However, green use must be supervised.

Please download this application form and pass it to the secretary, David Cowley or another member of the committee together with your cheque.

COMPETITIONS

2019 Competitions

The layout for our 2019 'in-club' competitions will be posted on the EVENTS page in Spring, 2019 and it was agreed that we dispense with separate Men's and Ladies' Competitions.

In each pairing, the top name(s) are 'Home' and responsible for initiating the arrangements, including the nomination of a 'marker' for the singles matches, with the 'Away' names.

Members are asked to ensure that their matches are completed by the date shown and that the clubhouse grids are up to date. The website will be updated as we go along.

Competitors are requested to mark the agreed dates and times onto the blackboard, ensuring that they do not clash with other matches. Below is the list of our competitions. The detailed grids will be shown on the EVENTS page as the competition progresses.
