Congratulations to the winners:

Carol Basgallop +14 shots

Ian Carter +29 shots

Thank you to the Carnival Queen and Princesses for presenting the trophies. The event raised £118 for the Carnival’s charities.


Percy Baker E2

Congratulations to our Percy Baker E2 squad who yesterday gained the 6 points in the re-arranged match v Poole to top the group and so qualify for the knock out stages of the competition. Well done old timers;-)

Dorset 4 wood singles success

Congratulations to Gordon who this evening beat Ben Paulley of Blandford in a dramatic match to win through to the Dorset 4 wood singles quarter finals.

Gordon was trailing 12 – 0 to an impressive Ben Paulley but once he won an end and went with a longer jack the gap was steadily closed.

Gordon was 20 – 19 up with Ben holding 3 shots but Gordon calmly trailed the jack back to his waiting woods and took the game 24  – 19.

Gordon now travels to Greenhill on 15th July for the Quarter and Semi finals. Good Luck.

Thank you to all our volunteers

This week is national volunteer week and our Club wouldn’t exist without them. Every time you play Bowls, enjoy tea and cake at the Club, go to a social, read our Gazette article, see a poster, walk through a clean Clubhouse, drink in the Bowlers Arms or anything else related to our Club, it’s because of our wonderful volunteers. Thank you everyone.
