Ladder Competitions
We have extended the completion date for the ladder competitions to the 31 March 2020.

This decision has been made as many members have been unavailable for matches during the summer months because of holidays and other commitments.

So please carry on climbing!

Plans for the future
The cut-off for registering teams to play in the Portsmouth & District leagues is 1st October each year. Based on the replies to a  recent questionnaire, the majority of members would prefer to continue playing internal competitions, roll-ups and friendly matches against other local clubs. This decision will be reviewed again during the summer of 2020 to see if members would like our Club to register teams to play in the Portsmouth & District leagues in 2021.

Our Club is already affiliated to Bowls England and Bowls Hampshire and a pool of qualified coaches are available for those who wish to develop their skills.

Within the Management Team we also have several colleagues who have attended coaching courses and some who have experience of playing in leagues. They are very happy to assist new players.

Finally, one suggestion that has been made already is maybe once a year we organise a Bowls trip to play a friendly series at another club in a different part of the Country. This normally takes the form of a weekend stay and evening party at somewhere like say Devon or Cornwall.

Again, all ideas and suggestions welcome.
