Club Coaching Session

For the benefit of all Swindon Bowls Club members who have expressed an interest in doing a coaching session at the Club, Derek and I will be holding a coaching evening on Tuesday 22nd August, starting at 6.30 pm.

The whole session will take about three hours.

We will try to sort out individual problems with each bowler and do some other training exercises to help your game, plus a session on how to CORRECTLY mark a game of singles, protocol and etiquette, on and off the green.

All activities will be on the green and possibly a question and answer forum will be held in the clubhouse afterwards, over a drink, concerning issues that could crop-up during a game, regarding rules etc.

I will put a form on the noticeboard (where friendly sheets are situated), for the names of those who wish to take part.


Swindon Bowls Club hosts St Joseph’s School Students

Swindon Bowls Club have once again hosted an event with students from St Joseph’s School.

In the morning of Tuesday 18th July, we had 22 students and in the afternoon 28, plus 3 members of staff during each session.

Both the students and staff enjoyed themselves immensely.

Carl and I wish to thank Cathleen Goddard, Terry Baker and Den Blaxhall for their assistance, without which we would not have been able to manage.

Below, is an inclusion for the School’s Newsletter and some photos.

Thanks Derek
