Club Competition Program 2019

Club Competition Program 2020

A big thank you to everyone who supported our competition programme in 2019. 

With some modifications to the original programme as we went along it was a very successful year with more entries and all nine competitions completed.

We have continued to learn more about what seems to work and attract entries from members. 

Unfortunately, this year the programme has had to be suspended due to events beyond our control. We will update the programme if the Coronavirus works through before the end of our bowling season and the government is able to give more positive advice

The programme is run to provide the opportunity for everyone to enjoy various formats of competitive bowls with fellow members. 

Putting your skills to the test is fun!  You never know, you might be better than you think? Have a look at the competitions listed below and enter this year.

Entry forms will be posted in the club house at the beginning of the season.
