Club competitions

The club runs twelve competitions for members to compete in. Entry lists are put on the notice boards in May. Only full club members can enter competitions. There is a small charge for each competition entered.

The competitions' draw is made at social day towards the end of May and the fixtures list is put on the notice board showing a date by which each round has to be played. The fixtures list is kept up to date with results, all competitions climaxing on the season's closing day, a Sunday at the end of September, when all finals are played throughout that day.

Although it's the last day of bowling, there's a party atmosphere. Food is provided, the bar is open throughout the day and there's lots of applause from spectators. An awards ceremony is held late afternoon for winners and runners-up, immediately followed by the club's AGM.

Below is a list of the club's competitions. Click any of the links for more information about each, including most frequent winners and a list of winners by year. Anything prior to 1997 with an entry in the photo album has a note to this effect against it. From 1997 onwards many years have a good selection of winners' photos in the album.
