Wednesday League begins on 26 October 2016 and we’ll have two sides playing again . This is very encouraging as it is another reflection of the increase in our playing membership.


Saturday League begins on 29 October 2016 and , as mentioned before , we are delighted to have two sides entered for the first time in a few years . Some good bowlers have joined us so we should be quite competitive in the respective leagues that we will be in .

There really is a great vibe as to the way things are progressing at the club and Tuesday evening , which appears to have become our ” social ” evening , saw our deck almost overflowing with thirsty and chatty members . The Greenside green is looking particularly good after its full body massage and we hope to use it again this weekend for the first time since early August .
