Robin Hendry Cup

Congratulations to all who took part in the Robin Hendry Cup vs Pewsey, and thank you to those last minute reserves that filled vacant places! I’m very pleased to report that after many years of famine, Devizes Bowls Club has regained the magnificent Robin Hendry Cup!!

It was a fantastic match, in perfect conditions, which was played in the true spirit of the game of bowls.

Mixed Pairs Event


We currently have a larger number of men entering so as it stands, on Saturday (11th) morning, I will ask a witness to watch as I randomly draw the participants for the competition so that there is an even number of men and ladies taking part.

Anyone who has entered and not drawn to compete will be informed via email and text following this draw on Saturday and their entry fee refunded for this competition.

I appreciate that this will leave some of you disappointed but I consider it the only fair way forward with a competition of this type.



Due to current low entries, the deadline for all of the ladies’ competitions is being extended until the end of May, to allow members more time to sign up. NEW DEADLINE FOR LADIES COMPS IS FRIDAY 31st MAY.

CLICK HERE to sign up online or put your name on the sign up sheets at the club.

The deadline for the Men’s and Mixed competions will still be 11th May, with the draws being completed at 1pm during the Mixed Pairs event the following day, Sunday 12th May.
