April 2023

The bowls season has arrived and we would have been fortunate to be able to play our first game on Sunday 2nd April on the Malmesbury artificial green, unfortunately due to the amount of rain we have had over the last week the game has been cancelled due to the green being waterlogged.

Prior to that the men had their pre-season meeting at the clubhouse on Saturday 1st April at 10-30am, it was an interesting meeting with a lot of topics covered.

For the first 2 weekends in April on Saturday and Sunday, members will be getting everything ready for the season, tidy-ups starting at 9-30am.

The green officially opens on Saturday 15th April at 11am, the first wood being delivered as always by our chairman Barry Wicks.

The following week is spent with members having roll-ups ready for the first competitive game, roll-up dates are as follows:-

Monday 17th April – 17-30pm – Mid Wilts Triples League (first roll-up)

Tuesday 18th April – 14-00pm – Men’s White Horse League and Ladies Seidal League.

Wednesday 19th April – 18-00pm – Ladies Nor-West League.

Thursday 20th April – 17-30pm – Mid Wilts MiTriples League (second roll-up).
