Mixed Pairs Win!

Congratulations to Mike & Tina who won their National Mixed Pairs yesterday v Dave B & Kathleen from Century.
They now face Dave P & Joyce, who put out firstly Peter T & Dawn then Barry & Teresa in the earlier rounds. Both of us only lost by 3 points so we are hoping that Mike & Tina can reverse the scoreline when they play.

Dave B & Kathleen & Co are now familiar CP opponents as they beat Mike, Tina, Peter & Dawn in the Mixed Fours and now play Kevin K & Co in the next round

At 10:00 today, the Mason trophy match v Hounslow takes place with one rink at home and one away. The over 60’s ‘girls’ would love your support at either venue. Good luck!

When you’re at the Club, don’t forget to sign up for the Elvis night in aid of Cancer Research on Sat 9th December and the Club Christmas Lunch on Saturday 16th December.

Over 60’s Week?

The Men’s Over 60’s Double Rink was played yesterday but unfortunately went out to Hounslow. Hounslow seem to be our bete noir this season, but we have been playing them for years and like them really!
Still, we have chance to re-dress it this Friday, when our Ladies Over 60’s Double Rink take Hounslow on in the National Mason Trophy.

On Saturday, the youngsters (yes, we do have some under 60’s bowlers!) are allowed out to play when we have our first Middlesex League match v Glebelands. Home and Away at 10:00.
We finish off the week with our Club Mixed Friendly v London Civil Service on Sunday afternoon.

Supporters and spectators welcome at all matches.
Good luck to all playing.

Your Club Needs YOU!

We need to form the Outdoor Committee, and volunteers are still  required to fill the following roles:

  •     Club Captain
  •     Ladies vice-captain
  •     Men’s vice-captain
  •     League Secretary for the Friday League (David Hale will run the Monday NPL League)
  •     Ladies National Secretary (may be combined with any of the other roles)
  •     Men’s National Secretary (may be combined with any of the other roles)

The following roles have already been filled – thank you to our Competition Secretary – Peter Chapman – and Fixtures Secretary  – John Eve.

If you would like information about the nature of the roles, please contact a member of the board.

Without people willing to volunteer a little of their time, the club can’t run properly, so please consider if you can spare a few hours a week to take on one of the positions.

Nominations can be made on the list on the bar in the club, or by giving your name to any board member: Peter Judge, Shaf Mahmood, Sarah Hall, Karen Griffiths, Tony O’Brien, Alasdair McWhinnie, Julian De Havilland by 30th November  


What a Great Win for our Chaps!

Well done to the lads who beat Herga in the Denny Plate yesterday morning. Absolutely brilliant!

They play Ilford or Glebelands in the next round- result isn’t up yet- on 9th December.
As a result the L&SC Challenge Shield originally scheduled for Saturday 9th v Desborough has been given an extension to Saturday 16th December.  Sign up sheet on the board.

Advent is Nearly Upon Us

With Christmas trees and decorations and muzak in the shops and on the radio, it’s a sign that Christmas is nigh upon us!

Thinking of buying an advent calendar?  How about purchasing one from our good friends at Ruils?  Behind each door is not a chocolate but an act of kindness to do every day. It’s suitable for all ages and a random act of kindness goes a long way to spreading a warm feeling of happiness for both giver and receiver,

PS.  Random acts of kindness aren’t restricted just to Advent!

Saturday 18th November – Men’s Denny Plate v Herga

Good luck to our chaps playing in the Denny Plate v Herga tomorrow starting at 10:00 am at both Cambridge Park and Herga.
Supporters and spectators welcome at both venues!


Congratulations to Tina & Dawn who secured a victory over Teresa & Jacqui in the National Ladies Pairs. There will be a chance for revenge when the girls meet again in the National Over 60’s Ladies Pairs. (I know, we don’t look that old!)
