Club members compete in one day, knock-out and leagues throughout the season, leading to a celebratory trophy event at the close. The photos show some of our past winners.
2022 Main Club Competitions
How they work
The schedule of matches is posted on the notice boards in the ladies' and in the men's changing rooms. If your name appears above your opponent on the draw sheet you are the challenger and you must contact your opponent to arrange your match well BEFORE the play by date. You should also book a rink in the diary on the Green Steward’s desk and if it is a singles match, arrange for a marker (list in the changing rooms). If it is the fixed jack competition you will also need to lay out the rink or find someone who can help you do this.
Once you have finished your match, please sign the score card and place it in the competitions’ box in either the men's or ladies' changing room.
For newer members please can I ask that you familiarise yourself with the etiquette information you were given some time ago. Click the button to read.
Please familiarise yourself with the rules of the game. If you would like to download a copy of the rules (3.2) these can be found at SECTION 5 -THE GAME (worldbowls.com) There is also a copy by the Green Steward’s desk (not to be taken away).
