Welcome

My name is Graham Smooker and I have the honour to be president of Swanage Bowling Club for 2017.

So, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced bowler, a local resident or just visiting the area, you will find no better place to enjoy the wonderful game of bowls.

Carnival & Regatta Drive

The sun came out for this year’s Carnival & Regatta Drive: it was great to welcome holidaymakers to our Club to raise money for good causes and take home some lovely memories.

We congratulate Mr T Hovey and Mrs Patricia Cornelius for winning the respective trophies and would love to thank you all for a wonderful time.

See you next year!

Percy Baker Progress

Congratulations to our Percy Baker squad of Mike Keats, John Brudenell, Gordon Wallis, Brian Beeston, Barrie Tatman, Graham Smooker and Dave Farley for winning East League 2.

They now progress to the knockout stages where they will play one of the four other East League winners.

If they are lucky they will avoid the preliminary round draw and go straight to the area semi finals.

In the knock out stages one triple will travel to our opponents whilst the other triple will play at home at the same time.

The dates for the knock out stages are:

Preliminary round Tuesday 8th August

Area Semi Finals Tuesday 15th August

Area Final Tuesday 22nd August

Dorset Final 9th/10th September at Bridport.

Good luck guys.
