Normally, the article from the Shenley Bowls Club is all about trying to recruit new members, but this season we have managed to enlist 4 new bowlers. The club is extremely happy, but we would like to encourage a few younger people to the game.
The picture above was taken at Braughing Bowls Club, last week. Braughing is famous for sausages and is about 15 miles from Cambridge. Shenley has entered a county competition which has both a home and away component. There are 4 teams from each club playing against each other. One team is made up of four players, one of three players, one with two and then a single. Our players are wearing canary yellow tea shirts and are shown playing in the triple event. Unfortunately, we lost 3 games to one, but we hope we will do better at the home return match at the end of the month.
If you want to find out more about the game look at the video at www.englishcarpetbowls.com . It is cheap and fun to play. No experience is required, just an enthusiastic spirit and a willingness to learn and you don’t need a partner.
Club night is every Wednesday from 7.30 pm – 9.30 pm.
You will find club members friendly and keen to help you develop your skills.
Why not come along and find out what the game has to offer. A session only costs £2 (plus a small joining fee), and there is no charge on your first night. All you need is a pair of trainers or sensible shoes all other equipment is provided by the Club. Tea, coffee and biscuits are included in the session charge.
We have also been fortunate in receiving a £100 donation from the Shenley Fete this year. We will now be able to buy some new equipment for the club. We would like to thank the committee for continuing to support the club.
If you are interested why not give the club secretary Maureen Ashman a ring on 07865595670 or just turn up to one of the sessions. The Club’s address is Shenley Village Hall,108 London Road, Shenley, WD7 9BS
