Markers Course

The club is looking at the probability of holding a markers course during the 2019 season here at Devizes. With that in mind enquiries have been made regarding the minimum number required for a course to be viable and we are informed that the magic number is 30 for viability and max 32 for practicality.

The committee recognises that reaching that number is something of a tall order but Bowls Wiltshire indicate that they will advertise the event across Wiltshire with a view to topping up the numbers from other clubs. It would be great if we could reach 10 or more volunteers.

To those of you who were listed on the website as qualified please be aware that the three-year certification came to an end on the 31st December 2018 so you are no longer qualified.

The course is a one-day event and costs approx. £10 per person. The bowls committee would consider canvasing the management committee with a view to seeking full refunds for all who volunteer to take this qualification.

If you wish to enrol or have any questions please refer them to our development officer Mike Mitcham ( email hidden; JavaScript is required ) or coaching co-ordinator Jenny Coates ( email hidden; JavaScript is required ).

President’s Message

President RosemaryA New Season Message from our President

As we embark on a new season it is time to reflect on all that has happened over the last one hundred and one years this club has been in existence. Our Club, likes others, wouldn’t be here without the hard work of volunteers, so it is really important for this club to survive that everyone does their bit to ensure that the club is here in the future for the next Generation of Bowlers.

We have another busy season ahead of us so please support your Captains by making yourself available for matches. I wish you all a happy and successful year of bowling.

Rosemary
