Congratulations to the Whites for winning the 2019 Memorial Trophy, winning score 10 – 2 against Springhouse.
The Whites are also set for a move from the 2nd league division up to the 1st division due to their continued successes throughout this years matches.
Well done to all members of the White team, well deserved.
Another fantastic week of bowls and entertainment at Gunton Hall arranged by Alan & Tony of SEAXE SMBC.
A clean sweep for Willows members in the pairs competition with Chris & Doreen the winners and Carol & Bob coming runners up. Chris, Michael, Elizabeth and Doreen winners of the plate.
A fantastic time was had by all clubs and everyone enjoyed themselves. Some of the matches were so close and some of the best bowling some of us have seen for a while.
Well done to everyone who took part in this event, it was nice meeting old friends and making new ones.
Hope to see you all at Gunton this coming November.
Due to a large number of members attending the Gunton Hall Holiday that week, the club will be open only on Tuesday 19th March but closed on the Thursday 21st.
Has certainly been busy for Willows members of late. The league matches are going well, Whites currently sitting at 2nd position in their league table. Greens are working hard to get further up the table this season. Greens sadly this year were knocked out of the memorial trophy after a enjoyable close match against Outwood Common.
Some members competed at the recent Short Mat Players Tours Taylor Bowls World Master Pairs and Fours. Six members recently played for County A & Premiers against Kent/Suffolk. Another enjoyable day was had at the Friends of Essex Open Triples. Not forgetting the recent Gunton Hall bowls holiday.
