This Season's Club Games

 

Last BowlClub Roll Up

Monday Evenings

Start: 5.45pm for 6.00pm

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.

This is an internal league teams competition for club members, held every Friday evening. Teams are made up of a minimum of 6 people, split into two groups playing alternate weeks over the season.  It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or have been playing for years, we welcome all abilities in the league.  

Teams are sometimes very competitive, especially towards the end of the season, in order to win the coveted 'Avian League Winners' award given out at our Presentation Evening, for the team with the highest points over the season.
