AFFILIATED TO BOWLS ENGLAND
Message from Cathy
As well as running the league the B&DWBA offers registered players the opportunity to play in Friendly Matches at a wide range of locations.. These games offer a new dimension in that players of very mixed abilities and from a variety of clubs are are able to play together, to get to know one another and to leave the green as firm bowling friends,
Six single sex Friendly matches have already been confirmed for the forthcoming season but I am hopeful that further mixed matches will also be added as these offer couples the chance to play together although being a singleton does not exclude anyone offering to play!
Qualifications to be 3 games-I game to count in one year irrespective of number of games played.
Officers qualify for badge on election.
Invitation matches not included
Badge may be worn on tops/blouses.
Loyalty and Friendship Badge
Players need to have represented B&DWBA on 12 occasions since 2015
"A Little bit of catching up"
Our ladies have been busy representing the B&DWBA at our "Friendly Matches" over the last few months
Our match at Pelhams B.C. against the B&D Men started the season off. It was an enjoyable and succesful Match with the Men narrowly beating us by 109 points to 102 points. Although the rain did its best to spoil thiings. it didn't.!! The meal was excellent and very much appreciated...Ladies we will get our revenge next year!!!
A B&DWBA Badge was awarded to Trish Douglas
Long service awards to Cathy Hunter and Pauline
The fixture at Waterside against the New Forest was once again an enjoyable and lovely afternoon.
Sadly the New Forest ladies proved rather better at bowling than we did!
The result was New Forest 133 to B&DWBA 88.
We did have a winning rink with Pat Biggs, Janice Perkins, Pam Coventry and Skip Lyn Elder who won 20/13..
