Club Competitions

Dear Members

Due to circumstances such as COVID and people having to isolate and the extreme hot weather some members have found it difficult to play some of their matches within the required time frame, so the 21st July date has been extended to  Friday 30th July
Members who still have a match outstanding which should have been played by the 21st July, will need to be played by Friday 30th July.  

NOTE….Any matches outstanding after this date will be decided by a draw. 

Thank you for your understanding.

Lynn Hicks
Competition Co-Ordinator.

Captain’s Charity Day


Captains Charity Day on Sunday 8th August

Each year the Captains choose a particular Charity to support and arrange fund raising events.  For 2020 we chose to support Multiple Sclerosis.  We had a very successful coffee morning in February 2020 which raised £800.  Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, fundraising came to a standstill for the rest of 2020.  We decided to continue the fundraising for MS this year so on Captains Charity Day we hope to raise even more money for this very deserving Charity.  

The Day will start with a Ploughman’s Lunch at 12.30pm (£2.50) followed by a game of Bowls and a Cream Tea afterwards at 4.30pm (£2.50).  We will then finish with a raffle.

There will also be a ‘100 square’ numbers sheet at the Club for you to buy a lucky number for £1.00 with a draw for two lucky winners.  (Purchase as many numbers as you like). Two prizes of £25.00 will go to the first two numbers drawn out and £50 will go to the Charity.

BEWARE – there will be ‘Marshals’ patrolling on the Day and fines will be imposed for ALL unacceptable behaviour!.  The rules will be ‘made up’ by the Captains so come along with a full wallet/purse and plenty of loose change!!!

A signing up sheet will be in the Club on Monday 26th July for you to indicate if you want a Ploughman’s, Cream Tea (or both!) and also if you wish to bowl.

DRESS: Casual/colourful – no jeans.  

If you come wearing a Club shirt/ grey trousers/Bowls England shorts  – an immediate fine!!   

If you can provide a raffle prize it would be much appreciated.

This is all for a really good cause.  

Thank you for your support.

Management Team

Website posts for 2021


For obvious reasons it has difficult to keep the website up to date as since September, other than meeting minutes, included in the members area, the many messages from Bowls Wiltshire and Bowls England has been the prominent feed for information to write about.

The committees have worked hard to plan for the 2021 season, despite an everchanging set of rules. The efforts to bring notices to you via the website on the whole have been very successful and we plan to continue with sign up sheets and rink bookings on line to supplement anything that may come into fruition as the rules change, yet again, and we are eventually allowed in the club to see notices on the board and the traditional table.

I would like to ask ALL team leaders to communicate results and submit reports throughout the season or if they cannot do this themselves please nominate a team member who is willing to do so.

Remember its your site! and it can only be a good as the information provided.

President’s Message

President RosemaryMessage from our President

With the Government’s Roadmap staying on course, it looks incredibly positive that we will be able to start bowling soon. Although there are still restrictions in place for the early part of the season by the end of June we will hopefully back to normal, with no restrictions.  I know that all the committees will be working hard to ensure that when we are able to bowl the club will be ready to welcome you onto the green. With the restrictions we currently have we may not be able to bowl against other clubs until restrictions are lifted so the Bowls Committee has prepared an exciting alternative program of bowling to suit members of all abilities and so ensure we are able to play the game which we all love.

In the meantime, stay safe and I look forward to meeting you all in the coming weeks.
