Hi All.

I hope that you are all keeping well during these exceedingly difficult times, with vaccinations on the horizon things will hopefully take a turn for the better during the coming weeks.

The committee and team captains are turning their thoughts to the outdoor bowling season. I know that Roy Taylor has already been in contact with several you regarding your availability for the Ashill League, if you have not heard from Roy and would like to play in this league please contact him. Terry Shoebridge (EBA captain), Paul McDonald (Upper Waveney) and Pat Barton (Breckland Ladies League) would also like to hear from prospective players so please get in touch with them. Their contact details are shown below.

We are also intending to play the normal club competitions:

Ladies Singles

Men’s Singles

Ladies Pairs

Men’s Pairs

Mixed Pairs

Mixed Triples

I will be pleased to take entries for any of these. Similarly, I will be pleased to take entries for an internal league, the format for this league which will be played mainly on but not solely Friday evenings is dependent on numbers, in the past it has been a triples league, but it is open for discussion. Thoughts are also being considered for a competition aimed at newcomers, entry to be only for those who have never won a competition. If anyone has any ideas regarding other competitions (possibly a Sunday morning?), please let me have them. My contact details:
