We are now approaching the end of 2021 and this will mark the end of my two year presidency (extended by a year due to the 2020 season being affected by covid restrictions). It has been a huge honour to be President of the club and a very enjoyable experience, tinged with sadness at the loss of our 2018 President, Paul Allen, who sadly passed away in October.
Linda McDermott will be our 2022 President and I would like to wish her every success in this role.
2021 Season Review
Another hugely successful and enjoyable season for the club, with some excellent bowling, a good friendly atmosphere and lots of fun.
Thanks to everyone who took part and to all those who have worked hard behind the scenes, whether by organising competitions, matches, helping with the teas or putting out equipment, to ensure that we are able to start bowling on time.
Some of season highlights include:-
Welcoming 10 new members to the club
Successfully dealing with covid rules to ensure that we complied with changing regulations to keep members safe.
An enjoyable league season with several players making their debuts.
A good Over 60s season, which had a delayed start due covid restrictions.
Fun and competitive friendly matches - it was good to meet up with players from other teams, which we missed last year.
Great club competitions with some close matches and deserved winners.
County competition successes including Beth Ward being selected to play for the county and finishing runner up in the County Under 25 singles. Richard Smallwood & Linda McDermott reached the semi final of the County Pairs and Kevin Roome & Beth Ward reached the quarter final.
An excellent Presidents Day competition which raised £175 each for Dementia UK & Ehlers-Danlos research.
A very enjoyable Annual Dinner & Presentation evening at Willesley Park Golf Club.
The captains & competition organisers have again done a brilliant job in ensuring the successful completion of all the matches - further details can be found via the relevant tabs.
