As Lockdown restrictions are easing so the club is gradually coming back to life. We have enjoyed a

doubles competition the last few weeks and others still coming for a roll up. Week commencing 13th July

we have a 'mini league' planned on Monday and Friday evenings [just like the Stamford League] among ourselves.

14 players and two teams - lots of discussion as to what to call them and finally some wizz kid came up with the

Jets and Sharks!  From West End story we are told. So we will be playing a triples and two doubles with 3 and 4 woods

respectively. It is great to see the green being used more although the club committee are still abiding the recommended

government advice with regard to social distancing and sanitising equipment.

The club house opened Saturday evening 11th July but the visitors used the main hall and were served from the

hatch rather than the lounge bar which is smaller and not so easy to sanitise. Everybody signed in and obeyed by the

new rules. 

We have a series of competitions organised so hopefully our members will enjoy them and this will in part make up for

the cancellation of all the fixtures with other clubs.

We are delighted to hear that Bowls England, Bowls Leicestershire and Friends are coming next year.

The green is looking great and is as always a pleasure to bowl on.

Anybody looking for a new hobby would do well consider bowling with us
