Thursday 5th April – Outdoor Spring Meeting at 7.00 pm

Come along to the Spring Meeting for the Outdoor Section.  It’ll be in the dining room so need to get the waterproofs out just yet!

There’ll be the chance to meet up with friends and old/new members and we’ll get to hear what has been planned for the summer season.

Dates for your diary:

Friday 20th July – Middlesex v Surrey Ladies County Match – Home at 1.00 pm

Saturday 21st July – Middlesex Ladies’ Finals Day – wonderful opportunity to watch the county’s best compete for all the trophies.

Friday 2nd August – Cambridge Park take on the Friends of English Bowling – a full six rink match and the opposition will be friendly but very hot!  We are looking forward to the challenge!

Sunday 4th March – Club Open Triples

A very well organised competition by Frances & Bob with tight matches and run away matches!

Through to the final are

Gorgeous George and his Lovely Ladies – Joan H & Sheila M

and Sheila C, with her warriors – David Willis and Laurence!

Thanks to Frances who masterminded the whole day including preparing all the food with Ann D and to everyone who came along, played, lost, won, chatter, laughed and enjoyed the company.


Saturday 3rd March – Charity Club Mixed Pairs in aid of Shooting Star Chase

It proved to be a very successful day both in bowling and fund raising terms.

After battling it out in the 1.5 hour sessions, Jean & Norman took on scratch pair Barry & Audrey (whose partners had had to drop out at the last minute) in the Final.

Barry & Audrey took the title by 3 shots with some amazing bowls from all four players.  I’m just disappointed we didn’t have a tie-break!

Well done to everyone who played, paid fines (for wrong coloured trousers and/or wrong biases!) ate lunch and tea and bought raffle tickets.  We raised just over £400 for Shooting Star Chase.  A terrific effort.

Thanks to Ann M who did her wonderful raffling to raise £216 and for organising fish ‘n chips for those who couldn’t face going home to cook a meal after a long day of bowling – 6 hours for Jean & Norman!

The format worked well and we intend to do the same next year – one day for Mixed Pairs and a separate day for Men’s Pairs.
