Friday Evening Leagues

Steve B was very disappointed to wake up yesterday morning, one week before the Friday Night Leagues were due to start, only to find some more wet stuff was dropping from the sky.  “Oh no!”, he exclaimed.  And he wasn’t the only one who said words to that effect yesterday!

So, with the green not fit for play today, it means there is less footfall of outdoor members at the Club to sign up for Friday Night Leagues this week, as well as matches – we’re playing Staines away on Thursday and Mid-Surrey and Masonians in the RBL League next Saturday and Sunday.

However, we are looking forward to seeing some of you this afternoon Saturday for a social get together, renew subs and friendships and get into gear for the outdoor season from 2:30.  Peter J is hopeful, with this week’s better, less wet but warmer weather forecast, there is a chance we’ll open on Friday 10th.

If you would like to join in the Friday Night Triples Leagues but can’t get to the club, ring the club or let any club member know so they can add your name to the list, or send a message through the website or to with Friday Night League in the subject heading. Plenty of options!

Although there are enough names for 6 teams, there aren’t quite enough for 6 squads.   Play starts between 5:00-5:30 and is usually about 12 ends, lasting 2 – 2.5 hours. There has always been a good buzz on Friday nights during the summer with lots of bowls, plenty of banter, good socialising as well as enjoying the summer evenings in good company whether playing or not.

At the moment, all we can hope for is Camelot where …

“The rain must never fall till after sundown.

By eight, the morning mists must disappear”,

In short there’s simply not

A more congenial spot

Than happy outdoor lawn bowling than here in Cambridge Park!.”
