Regatta and Carnival Event

What a wonderful turnout for the Club’s Competition as part of Swanage Regatta and Carnival week. We had 4 rinks of Triples and were delighted that most players were visitors to the Club.

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.

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.
