Bowls

We won our two Wednesday League matches last week as well as seeing a clean sweep from all three of our sides on Saturday . Sadly the Wednesday sides lost in very close fought matches yesterday . It’s still early stages for our Saturday League teams but there have been encouraging signs that we may do well all round.


 

Find two mates and join us on the Greens this summer for the Thirsty Trips Competition. Represent your section!  More details below!

Old Boys Tens Tournament

The Club hosted a very successful Old Boys Tens Tournament on Saturday – if any members were here they would have seen the fantastic crowd and the great vibe at the Club. I would like to thank all our staff for their extremely hard work and for keeping a sense of humour through all of it.  We all worked 12 hours with no break so it was a fantastic effort.

A special thank you must however go to two of our members who stepped up to the plate and go involved with helping, once they started we would not let them go so they ended up working all day!

Thank you to Johnny Dixon, Mike Carlisle and Brad Guymer– you have no idea how your help and cheerful faces kept us going all day.
Pirates Club always amazes me as to what a special place it is where members just roll up their sleeves and get involved to help the Club.

Here’s to Old Boys Tens 2017– they are coming back as they loved Pirates so much.
