Many congratulations to Peter Allard on reaching the area final of the National over 60’s singles where he played Roger Barnbrook at Wymondham Dell on Thursday 3rd March 2022. It was a very good final but unfortunately for Peter his opponent proved too strong on the night winning 21-14 however, Peter can feel really proud on reaching the final.

In the Area final of the National Federation Triples, held at Acle Bowls Club on Sunday February 13th, our Trio of John Hipperson, Peter Allard and Julian Cook unfortunately lost to a triples team in superb form however, very well done on reaching the final.

BOWLS SHOES


It has come to the committee’s attention that bowlers are leaving then re-entering the building still wearing their bowls shoes. Could you please refrain from this as dirt and grit etc. is deposited on the carpet which could cause damage. Thank you for your co-operation.

RINK BOOKINGS


It has come to the attention of the committee that some members who put their names on the booking sheets for the friendly roll-ups do not let the club know if they are unable to attend which potentially deprives other members the chance to play. Could you please telephone the club and leave a message or email us if you are unable to keep your booking. This also applies to any members who book rinks for casual play and cannot attend. Thank you for your co-operation.

CLOAKROOMS


Will Members please ensure that:

All outerwear is left in the cloakroom along with bowls bags;

Shoes are left in the cloakrooms or lockers;

Handbags should be placed under the rink-side tables.
