This Season's Club Games

  

Monday

Roll Up

Last BowlMonday Evenings

5.45 pm for a 6.00pm Start

We hold a roll up every Monday evening for all club members, no matter what your level of experience.  Just turn up and you will be put into a team of 2, 3 or 4 depending on numbers.  These are friendly games, to help you practice or "keep your hand in". 

Having said that, if you are a competitive person, we regularly publish results of the teams you are in, so you can see who has the highest score for the ladies and the gents.  We also give an award at our Presentation Evening for the lady and gent with the highest score.
