Bognor Regis Bowls Club
Welcome to our 2013 season, which also happens to be our 90th anniversary (1913 - 2013).
Unfortunately once again the weather has let us down with the early matches being cold, wet, and dismal. "Ce la vie" ! , or to the uninitiated, " thats life"!
We had our very charming and busy Lady Mayoress start our opening match, and would like to express our thanks to her for graciously fitting us into her busy schedule.
We have a very busy season ahead of us, incorporating all our normal fixtures (can any of them be classified as NORMAL?) County Games, VIP fixtures, visiting Touring Clubs, and 3 anniversary fixtures for the men.
We are trying out new catering facilities at the Methodist Church Hall, just across the road from Waterloo Square , and ask your forebearance for any hiccups in procedures. If the tea ladies start crying, please offer them a shoulder to cry on! and perhaps a clean tissue! Hopefully things will resolve themselves and you should all get a choccy biccy and a cup of tea.
Thank you for taking the time to read this page and we really are looking forward to meeting you all at Waterloo Square and recipricol venues throughout 2013.
HOT NEWS UPDATE: Friday 31st May our ladies County Triple team Margaret Phillips, Jean Taylor and Barbara Reardon playing at Beach House Park played against Field Place in the morning winning 24/22 , for a place in the semi-finals Bognor ladies came up against Crablands and a very close game followed with an extra end having to decide the winners. Bognor won by 2 shots. Our congratulations to Bognor Ladies, we look forward to seeing you at Preston Park on Sunday 30th June for the semi finals.
On reflection Bognor Bowls Club has had a very good 2012 season with the men staying mid table in the First and Third Division of the Littlehampton Gazettee League and the ladies staying in the First Division of the C & M League.
As a Mixed Club we entered the Holbrook Cup and Midhurst Cup Competitions and managed to reach and win both finals and were delighted to walk away with both Cups at our first attempt, beating Liphook in the Midhurst Cup and Petworth in the Holbrook Cup. We must at this stage give thanks to both Midhurst and Stedham bowling clubs for their very generous hospitality and welcome on finals day.
Our Finals Weekend planed out and we waited with trepidation for the weather but we didn't need to worry! The sun shone for two whole days. Competitors and spectators were bathed in sun shine all day long. Spectators were treated to excellent matches with lots of oohs and aahs, and much clapping. It almost seemed a shame when it was all over.
But the season is not yet over! We still have two weeks to go, so come on everone, put your name down for the next few finals games, enjoy yourselves before we all head indoors and relearn the green all over again!
