A Management Committee meeting took place on 1 November when it was decided / noted:
  • Coloured bowls shoes may be worn in accordance with World Bowls rules but all shoes worn must be specifically designed for bowls. Flat soled shoes that are not bowls shoes do not meet this criteria.
  • The cut off rule for payment of membership will be enforced in accordance with club rules. Membership must be paid by 1st September each year.
  • Management Committee minutes will be future be displayed on the club notice board once they have been ratified at the meeting following that to which the minutes refer.
  • Following advice from the British Wheelchair Bowlers Association, wheelchair users are asked to observe the following rules:      
                1. Please try to be independent
                2. Should support/help be required on the rink, please organise before play starts
                3. Please do not presume your team mates or opposition will help
                4. For casual play, please vary the rinks so far as able to reduce the production of "tram lines" in the underlay.
 
We as a club, will do our best to support your play.  If you have any ideas to improve our support, please let the Management Committee know,
 
  • Twelve new lockers have been installed.  There is a waiting list for lockers and any member not already on the waiting list can add their name by contacting Sue Maxim. Spare keys for the lockers are held behind the bar and a system has been put in place to record the use of spare keys.
  • The club has a number of male coaches but ideally a female coach would be a welcome addition.  Any lady interested please contact Brian Deakins to discuss.
  • The club has a membership of 377 with a number of other people likely to join in the near future.
  • The county runs a Saturday indoor summer league which to date the club has not entered a team.  Consideration is being given entering a team in 2019 if there is sufficient support.  Further information in due course.
  • When entering an internal club league the times of that league are clearly stated and known to players. The committee asks that teams endeavour to play games on the given date and time and not change just to get a better starting time. Also reserving rinks well in advance without a particular game in mind is preventing other teams from re-arranging matches that have been postponed for one reason or another.

 

 




In continuing their excellent start to the season, on Saturday 27th October the Roundwood Men's A team won all four rinks and the overall resulting in a 7 - 0 point victory in Division 2 of the county league.

On 12 October a friendly game took place between Rounwood and Wilsted Bowls Club from Bedfordshire. Wilstead is a friendly mixed members club, which has taken an active part in the sport of Lawn Bowls in Bedfordshire since it was founded in 1985. Roundwood overcame Wilsted to achieve a comfortable win.

The Mens A Team have won both their opening league games 6 - 1.  The Mens B Team commence their league campaign on Saturday 20 October with an away game against Hunstanton.  Further information on both the Ladies and Mens teams can be seen under Leagues.

 




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.
