Inter-club matches 2021: Played 33, won 19, lost 14

Gildredge Park Bowls Club had a mixed year of inter-club matches in 2021. There were 53 planned matches. After a slow start to the year we picked up the pace and finished with 19 wins to 14 losses. Dozens and dozens of club members took part in these matches. The sign-up sheets in the clubhouse sometimes showed more members wishing to play than spaces available. The selection committee of the captains, vice-captains and section members did a great job in setting the teams and sharing out the places so everyone was able to play in a good number of games.

The vibrancy of our inter-club programme and the committment of members is to be applauded. Thank you to match secretary Gordon Burr for liaising with other clubs and establishing the shcedule of macthes.

Unfortunately 20 matches were cancelled - nearly always by the opposition, not us. Some cancellations were directly due to COVID restrictions. But some were because visiting clubs could not raise a team or had cancelled their tour. Across the country many clubs are facing a drop in membership. Let's hope the 2022 season picks up. Gildredge will also need to take care and work hard to recruit new members, encourage members to take part in matches, and try to play more away matches.
