Wimborne Match Abandoned

Please be aware that today’s men’s match at Wimborne in the B&D League has been postponed.

Graham had a call from the Wmborne captain to say their green was flooded and it was pouring down over there.

After trying to re-arrange for this coming Monday , Wimborne have now informed us that this is not now possible as another match had been re-arranged for then.

Graham will now try to agree a date and time in the next couple of weeks to play the game.

We’ll keep you posted.

The Levi Cup (men who haven’t won a competition before) between Peter & Tony B  happens Tuesday at 10am.

Here is the weekend schedule.

Come down to Beach Gardens and support our finalists.

Colourful President’s Day

Our President, Brian Beeston decided this year’s President’s Day theme should be bright, colourful and gaudy. Well, Members didn’t let him down! Despite the rain we managed 10 ends of laughter and bowling before retiring to the Pavilion for silliness and a great ploughman’s. All proceeds go to the MS Society, Brian’s Charity for this season.

President’s Coffee Morning and Opening Day



Our President’s Coffee Morning on 5th April was a great success. Along with opportunities to rejoin, buy new uniform or even a plant or two, a raffle raised over £100 with the top prize of a wonderful cake made by Kath Senior. The event raised £290 for the President’s 2018 charity; the Wareham and Purbeck Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Our Opening Day took place on Saturday 7th April, with a game in the morning followed by fish and chips. After an initial rain shower, the sun came out and welcomed in the new season.

The 2 events raised over £400 for our Charity.


Well done to Judy Smooker for winning The Coburn Trophy.

The Coburn Trophy is run by Bowls Dorset and is open to any Lady who holds office in their Club. Judy is the Swanage Bowls Club Treasurer and when she’s not counting all the pennies (or organising our fantastic social events), she just happens to be an amazing bowler!

The Coburn Cup is a 4 woods singles knock out competition with the Final held on 10th September. Against tough opposition Judy won with her mantra of ‘Focus on the Green’, a tip for all aspiring bowlers!

Congratulation Judy and thank you for all your work for our Club.


Ladies Captain’s Report 2017

It has been a mixed season for the Swanage Ladies.

In the Edna Paisley League the ladies maintained a position in the upper part of the league throughout 2017 and finished in a commendable forth place.

Despite all our best efforts, in division 2 of the Dorset Women’s Bowling League we were less successful finishing third from bottom.

Whilst we did not achieve any major success, we all had a very enjoyable season and I wish to thank all the ladies that participated. I look forward to playing next year and wish Linda success as the 2018 Ladies Captain.
