Ashford BC – Our New Besties??
Big weekend starting tonight when our men play Ashford in the National Top Club at 6:00. (No Friday Night Leagues tonight)
Tomorrow morning, the Ladies play Ashford in the second round of the Middlesex Double Rink competition starting at 10:00. One rink home, one away.
On Sunday, the ladies play… yes, you’ve guessed it, Ashford in the National Top Club at CP starting at 10:00.
We know the opposition quite well already, so we’re looking forward to close, competitive matches and sharing a drink and friendship afterwards.
For a change, the opposition in tomorrow’s Richmond & Barnes League match is Teddington. And, we know lots of them very well too.
Staying on the friendship bus, we play Hampton away on Sunday afternoon.
Good luck to everyone playing. Stay relaxed so your bowling arm swings freely, concentrate on the task in hand and don’t forget the suncream. The weather is going to be good.
Major Roadworks in Twickenham This Weekend
Jane alerted us to major roadworks in Twickenham this weekend (oh, yippee) so wherever you’re going, allow some extra time.

Happy Birthday to our Favourite Scone Maker!
Happy Birthday, Norman!

Thanks for all the work you do for us. Arranging fixtures with an ever changing calendar isn’t easy.
Monday League Afternoon – Warm & Sunny!
Pack the suncream today. Up to 20c. Hasn’t the weather been kind to us this last week? Long may it continue. Of course it would be nice if it rained during the hours of darkness just to keep things fresh. I’m looking for Camelot …
“The rain must never fall till after sundown;
By 8 the morning mists must disappear …”
Alas, the men went down to Ashford in the National Two Fours yesterday but there were other wins in the Nationals with Dave, Andy, Wolfie & Ange. The Mixed Fours, Tina, Lucy, Ashley & Andy in the Mixed Fours and Dawn & Paul Cater in the Mixed Pairs. They are out again tonight beside Ann H & Jay Head in the Mixed Fours at Brentham.
Ann H, Jean and Jacquie all have their MIddlesex Fours matches this week and Ange & Dawn start their Richmond & Barnes Open Pairs challenge and Shaf his singles.
I’m sure there are others playing matches, so keep us updated.
We need 4 more for Sunday’s triples v Hampton if anyone can add their name to the list, please.
