LOOKING FORWARD TO 2017
The Green opens for play on 15 April 2017 with our usual opening get together to blow out the cobwebs. Thanks to Fixture Secretaries Dave King & Mary Shapland we have a full fixture card for the coming season.
The men welcome the challenge and opportunity to play in the Premier Divisions of the MBA Leagues again and can guarantee all opposition clubs a warm welcome but a hard fought contest. However there are none more competitive than our Ladies who will once again be in there fighting to regain their title.
Fancy a day out bowling or just sight seeing? This year we head to Bath for one of our days out on Sunday 21 May and then to Weston Super Mare on Sunday 16 July. All are welcome - bowlers and non-bowlers alike. Additionally we are looking forward to the visit of Porthcawl BC on Sunday 13 August.
Friendly Games - Stacks of opportunities to play Friendly games, both Triples and Fours. Competitive but friendly encounters take us across into Bristol, Gloucestershire and Royal Forest of Dean. Also games in Cardiff and the Valleys.
