Season 2018

Well the season is now over and our Closing Day gave President Gerald an opportunity to overturn the 5 point advantage which our Captains had when the Green opened.  Sadly, it wasn't to be and the captains once again came out on top.  Ah well, there will always be a next year!!!!!!!!!.

The season has proved very successful for the club as we have lifted the title of Bucks Plate Winners, topped the Bletchley & District League and both sides maintaining their positions in their respective BBA League sections.  To top it all, our Juniors have had a tremendous season with Rowan Thomas winning the Bucks Junior Academy 14 - 18s and Harvey Whitmack being runner up in the Under 14s group.   The Juniors are now integrating well with the Senior club having shown their skill in a number of competition/representative games.

The year saw our 3 Level 1 coaches progress to Level 2 which now means we have a 6 strong team which has been a major factor in helping the club progress during the season.  To get some on-line tips and details of coaching opportunities, have a look at our coaching centre.

A strong Events Diary and an excellent social calendar in place to compliment a number of excellent competitive games against other local and not so local clubs, we had a great season to look back on.

If you have any suggestions to put to the Social Committee, or ideas which you think the Promotions committee should consider, please feed these back via our enquiry page - remember this is YOUR club, so your ideas are welcomed..

If you would like to find out more about the club or the game of bowls in general, please also visit the enquiry page where you can give us your contact details and arrangements will be made for one of our committee members to get in touch to answer any questions you may have.
