Club Competition Program 2020

Club Competition Program 2020

Sadly, the 2020 program was badly disrupted by government restrictions necessary to combat the Covid 19 pandemic.

At the end of July a survey to understand the views of members on competitions resulted in a limited number of singles competitions being offered. These competitions were adapted to ensure they were Covid 19 compliant and offered to members in August.

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. 

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.
