Early January Mixed Drives & Newcomer Roll Ups

We enjoyed two very good mixed drives at the weekend with quite a few of the 30 new members coming along to join in and meet ‘old timers’ as we were kindly classified!

Monday 8th and for 4 weeks, two rinks will be available on Monday evenings (unless there’s a competition match) for all newcomers who would like to come along and have some practice.  Laurence, Barry & David will be on hand to give any coaching advice if required.  Sessions will be run alongside normal Monday leagues – 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm with £3 green fees.

Friday 26th January – Social – BINGO!


Everyone (members, family and friends) is welcome to come along to our January Social Evening on Friday 26th January where Pauline and Brenda will be providing “posh” nibbles to go with Peter Twell’s Best Bingo Calling!

Tickets are £5.00 each available from behind the bar.  Any questions?  Please contact Pauline Barnes at the club.

Happy New Year to All Our Members, their Families and Friends!



We hope you had a good Christmas and New Year celebrations and didn’t succumb to any of the bugs that seem to be around at the moment or got snowed in unexpectedly.

Both West Ealing and Hayes have pulled out of the weekend matches o 6th & 7th but we will still have mixed drives on both days.  Please come if you can – there are sign up sheets on the noticeboard with details and the Club re-opens at 9.00 am on Tuesday 2nd January so do join in the roll ups every morning if you can.

Good health and successful bowling wishes from the Board and the Indoor and Outdoor Committees.

Saturday 16th – Men – London & Southern Counties Shield v Wey Valley

Busy day on Saturday.  There will be bacon rolls available at both venues before the game which starts promptly at 10.00 am.  No after match meal but those playing at Wey Valley can order food from their restaurant.
