Our A.G.M. on the 26th April brought our Autumn Winter season to a close. An evening to celebrate the highs and ….the shorts. With the men’s A team winning their league and with it promotion to the Norfolk 1st Division, and the Ladies A team securing a matching  promotion, some serious pride. Well done both squads. Both B teams performed creditably and just as importantly, enjoyed their season.
Nearly 3000 league games, about 1000 roll-ups, and still time for casual play, Club and County matches, practice and coaching. A very full season.
Our social scene was busy throughout, with sell-out support for Roger’s quizzes , good Bingo nights, our annual coach to the World Championships at Potters, and some serious partying at Xmas.
Membership stands at a five year high, and whilst delighted with this, we can take more, and would love to be cheering some youngsters. Always more to be done here.
Summertime, Easter, and the outdoor players scent grass and stride away, but the club runs year round and the Summer leagues will begin and the roll-ups never stop. Quieter but very much still running, in fact an ideal time to join and be coached!
In closing we lose our long serving Men’s Secretary (Robin)-adieu - and so many thanks, and our very capable Chairman (Chris), who stands down, having handled all the change of the last year with some unflappable poise, and to whom we also say thank-you and well done.
And to all our members, new and old, the game goes on, so good luck, good line and great length same for you.
 
 

 




This is a photo of Maureen Stiles and Pearl Gerrard, before their Quarter Final Club and County Ladies Pairs match they played yesterday (14th April) at Roundwood against Dereham ladies.

 

After 20 ends it was 20-20. Plenty of supporters were on the edge of their seats, waiting for the final end! So it was nerve racking on the green! But they got the one shot they needed - and now go into the semi finals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




There is now a new page on the website. It is called 'For Sale' and is available for anyone to have bowls items for sale post posted.  Details to Rob Hoffman.

 

 




Roundwood Bowls Club is an indoor bowls club with just under 400 members playing in friendly roll ups, internal leagues and county competitions. With over 60 members in their eighties, some of whom find it difficult to play for two hours, it was decided to look into providing a wheelchair to help them continue bowling. We quickly discovered that the cost of a chair, £2500, was beyond our means, so we started fundraising. Six months later, thanks to the generosity of the following people and organisations, Tesco (Drayton), Taverham Parish Council, Yorkshire Building Society, Taverham Lions, John Jarrold Trust, Mike Carey and Roundwood Social Club, we have four members currently using the chair and we are looking to purchase a second one this year.

Thanks are also due to Sue Hunter who, working enthusiastically and vigorously, was responsible not only for finding the sponsors but also for organising money raising events.
