Devizes Bowls Club is a thriving and friendly place to meet new people and enjoy a game of bowls. We have two six rink greens, a modern clubhouse including bar and professional kitchen, run a full programme of events including competitive and social bowls, social events and a full winter programme of indoor short mat bowls with three mats available for use.
An exceptional week-end of competition was witnessed at the club and coupled with excellent weather, enjoyed by all who played and watched, over the two days of competition.The pinnacle of this week-end culminated in the presentation night that followed a long Presidents/Captains day as we came to the end of the season.
Held on Saturday August 31st and Sunday September 1st were the finals of the season long list of club competitions with some tight games, some surprises as well as expected champions being created. Whilst commiserating with some long-term champions who this year did not quite repeat previous successes, it was nice to see a few new names which will appear on the club honours board after the presentations on President/Captains day next Sunday.
Many congratulations to those who won and very well done reaching the finals those who were runners up. Many more congratulations and thanks to our competitions organiser Sheila Garlick who again did a phenomenal job of ensuring the competitions ran smoothly.
Took place on Sunday 15th September after the annual game between the Presidents team and the Captains team which this year was won by the captains team.
Winning rink for the captains team was Ashley Galloway, Angela Roberts and Sue Long. whilst Wendy Gibbon, Mary Pearce and Monty Smith were winning rink for the presidents team.
