DEANE PARK BOWLS CLUB
We pride ourselves on being a very inclusive and friendly club, all are welcome from absolute beginners and improvers to experienced bowlers.
For beginners all you need is a pair of flat-soled shoes (no heel), there will be a set of bowls for you to use and plenty of help to get you started.
Bowls is an excellent game for gentle exercise, out in the fresh air, amongst friendly and companionable people.
Come along and give us a try.
Normally, we have informal Roll-Ups every Monday evening from 4:45pm. and every Wednesday and Friday afternoon, from 2:00pm during the season, which runs from the last week in April through to the end of September.
We ask all members wishing to play in the Roll-Ups to be at the green for 2:00pm. for afternoons and 4:45pm. for evenings, to help in setting-up the greens and also to give the Captain time to sort teams for the session's play.
We play 18 ends with a break at 9 ends for a welcome cup of tea or coffee.
Message from the Bridge:
"This is your captain speaking"
It has been a very trying season so far.
The effects from Covid are still being felt and combined with holidays, injuries and illness it has made a few grumpy times for your Captain.
It is amazing how many larger clubs will still only field 3 triples even though they have a much larger membership than DP.
But we remain very positive even though our results are not the best. You cannot keep a great club down and I know we will bounce back next season with a whole new training regime currently being planned.
Our wonderful Ray is always looking for new social events to keep us occupied and happy once the bowls season finishes, with one being our presentation night so, please keep an eye on the event planner.
We are meeting up with four new clubs over the next few weeks so a chance to meet new bowlers and build a successful relationship with them for next season is really exciting for us all.
Please continue to put yourself forward for matches as you are very aware 'no name no game'.
See you soon
Your Captain, Janet
