DESBOROUGH TOWN BOWLING CLUB
NOT only is the Friday Night League underway but the excitement will continue afterwards this Friday (30th July) with Stu Panter's 90 Club monthly draw. What else could you possibly want to do on a Friday night??? Well....buy a ticket for the MEAT RAFFLE prior to the 90 Club draw.
The Club 2 Wood Singles was completed today in the hot sun. The 1/4 finals saw Adrian Harris overcome Darren Lee, Margaret Watts narrowly beat Vic Cosgrove, Pat Crouch just edged out Karen Collins whilst John Haines beat Richard Watts. On to the semis, where Adrian took on the mighty Margaret and managed a win and John saw off Pat. You can see Sir John holding the trophy after a sweltering final.
I would like to thank all the markers especially Bob Sullivan who marked all 3 rounds.
Sunday July 4th saw another successful Burmah Oil Triples completed. The weather gods look down and took pity as the rain and thunder storms predicted didn't arrive.
Richard Cook along with Phil Bates and Sir John Haines took the trophy, scoring 44 points.
In second place just 4 points behind were Celia Brooker, Billy Parsons and Darren Lee and taking third spot on 38 points were Sharon Lane, Stu Panter and Karen Collins.
Many thanks to Alison and Sue for providing a magnificent lunch time snack and evening meal.
Richard's first competition win.....never would have guessed!!!
May it be the first of many.
NOT only is it the AGM tonight(25th June) at 7pm in the Clubhouse, but the excitement will continue afterwards with Stu Panter's 90 Club monthly draw. What else could you possibly want to do on a Friday night??? See you there.
Bowls England is delighted to publish our latest guidance for Return To Play, following today’s (Monday 10 May) confirmation from the Prime Minister regarding a further easing of restrictions from next week.

Please read our full guidance here, which includes FAQs and full details on the above headlines.
The season has started and we have had great support from our members. It's all a bit strange but as restrictions are gradually lifted things hopefully will return to normal.
We have introduced an online booking system. Members need to register before they can book a rink. All members have been emailed instructions. You can use the booking system from your PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone and once the clubhouse is open a tablet will be available for booking at the club. For those unable to access the booking system the suggestion is to get another member to book you a ring or ring the steward.
The Clubhouse is now open as normal, although entry until 21st June will still be via the side gate. You MUST register in the Track & Trace book or via the NHS app on your arrival, whether going into the clubhouse or staying outside.
You MUST wear a mask on entry to the clubhouse until you sit down. The bar will be open in the evenings and you will order at the table not at the bar. Please do not move chairs around or move seats, and try not to go on walkabouts!!
