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. In August of this year we surveyed a sample of our members to see if a significant number wanted to play competitively. It very quickly became clear that, currently, the majority are happy to continue playing internal competitions and roll-ups. As a way of introducing our members to playing teams from other local clubs several friendly matches have been arranged for September.

This decision will be reviewed 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 are experienced league play bowlers and who 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.
