President: Dorothy Humphreys
Message from Dorothy: “During 1990 on the recommendation of a close friend, I decided to join Penketh Bowling Club. Looking back on many years membership, I must say it was a decision I have never regretted.
Crown green bowling is a wonderful pastime. You have two options, you can take the game seriously and endeavour to become a team player or you can look upon bowling as a pleasure full of enjoyment not to be taken to keenly and to take part in social bowling played every Saturday during the bowling season. Couple this with occasional competitions, bbq’s and bring & eat buffets.
Without exception, people who join, will find bowling a challenge and a new beginning in their lives”
