MEN’S CAPTAIN 2024

 

 

 

TonyBell – Men’s Captain 2024

 

This is my second year as Captain,my first being 2022. I hope the knowledge I gained from the first year will enable further achievements. I still enjoy being part of a friendly club as Swanage Bowls’s Club certainly is. So come and join us.

LADIES’ CAPTAIN 2024

         2024 Ladies Captain; Julie Lomas-Smith

 

I am looking forward to my  second year of being Ladies Captain.

We did extremely well in the Bournemouth and District Ladies League coming top in Division One.
We also had some very successful games in the Benevolent Triples, Ladies Senior Fours and  County Pairs where two of our ladies
represented us at Leamington.
I introduced a new format for our Saturday mixed triples games which gave all of our members a chance to play in this and I am please to report that our team in Division One came top of that league.
If you think you might like to have a go at playing bowls please come along to one of our Open Days on May 5th and 12th, it will give you an insight into the game and we would look forward to welcoming you.
Wishing all our members a great bowling season.

THE SEASON IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER

The greenkeeper and his team have been treating, mowing, rolling and gently encouraging the green back to its pristine condition in time for the new season. The gardeners and grounds folk have been digging, weeding, sowing, planting and tidying. A party of willing members will meet on the 30th to wash, scrub, wipe, and shine the Pavilion and anything else that stands in their way. The Committee has been planning and organising ahead of the President’s Coffee Morning on 12th April.

The season begins on Friday 13th April with the Opening Day Match followed by Fish and Chips.

From Monday 15th April practice sessions begin and the season proper gets underway in May.

THANK YOU TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS WHO HAVE AND WILL WORK HARD TO ENSURE SWANAGE BOWLING CLUB IS READY FOR 2024.
