The 2024 fixtures list is now on the website - thanks to Joy Mayall for inputting all that data (over 130 fixtures!) - you can now sign up to as many as you like, through the website.

Pre-season meetings

On Saturday 13th April there are two pre-season meetings, one at 10am and one at 12pm, both in the club house.  As with the last few years we've had to split this into two meetings because the club house simply could't accommodate our entire 130+ membership if everyone turned up!  The agendas will be identical so please attend the meeting that suits you best. For new members these are a great opportunity to meet people and find out how things work.  The club captains will give a pre-season briefing and the general committee will be there to answer any questions.

Kicking off the new season

The season starts properly a week later on Saturday 20th April, with our usual coffee morning, and a chance to get on the green and see how it plays after a winter of regular maintenance work from our new greenkeeper.  The following day on 21st April BowlsWear Direct will be here from 11am onwards with their mobile shop, it's a great opportunity to buy any kit you might need for the new season - trousers/skirts, jumpers, jackets, bowls, bags, chalk, measures etc - if there's anything you particularly want then call them on 01483 536337 to pre-order.

Later that day there's a club drive to get your arms swinging, and our schedule of friendly games starts as usual with the fixture against Handcross on April 24th. 

This season the green will be closed on the first Monday of every month, from 9am til 12pm, for extra maintenance work to be done.
