Opening of the Green 2019

A large number of our members attended the Opening of the Green for our 2019 season.

Good food, a raffle and fine weather helped to make this long awaited event a great success and everybody present had a lovely afternoon of bowling.

The first bowls of the season were bowled by Alison White and Bob Hiles, our Ladies and Mens Presidents.

Floodlit Tournament 2018

The winning team of this years Floodlit competition, sponsored by A C Watson & Son, Building Contractors, is Swindon Bowls Club’s very own “No More Vices”.  The squad was Carl, Mickey, Will, Dean and Scotty.

Well done guys.

Also, well done to Highworth B on reaching the final and our losing semi-finalists, Highworth A and Swindon Bowls Club’s “The Yardsticks”.

Thank you again to everyone that played throughout the week, Jim and Christine for organising the event, all of you who helped behind the bar, in the kitchen, serving the refreshments, clearing up and any other helping hand I’ve missed.

It’s been a yet another great success and hopefully we’ll see you all next year.

 

The Ron West Trophy Tournament: UPDATE

To All Swindon Bowls Club Members.

As many of you will know, our recent Ron West Trophy Tournament was yet again an outstanding success. The weather was kind to us, there were some excellent matches played and everyone involved had a good time.

As a result of this years event, the Club was able to donate £162 to both MacMillan Cancer Support and the Alzheimer’s Society and letters of thanks from both charities are on display on the noticeboard in the clubhouse.

Congratulations go to this years winner, Mrs Jean McCaffery, who also won this tournament in 2017. An incredible achievement, well done Jean.

Sincere thanks must also go to Derek Caddy, Bill Pearce and all the other members involved in making this tournament a huge success.
