I have no response from the February newsletter for offers for cover for April & September so if any member feels that they could cover April or September or would act as Vice-Captain to help the Captains, please contact Ken Homewood. (01483-282384 or kenhomewood@live .com) 

We have an indoor match at Cambridge Park, Twickenham on Sunday March 25th, 2018 at 2 pm (Whites).  A sign-up sheet is in the clubhouse or contact Adam Willson direct if you would like to play on 01932 889662 or

There are at least 10 ladies who have not yet responded to the Lunch invitation.  Please would those ladies ensure they let Valerie, (020 8398 2932), know if they are coming by 5th March latest.
A good number of ladies have said they would like to attend Friday roll-ups: therefore, Valerie will continue to organise these as long as interest continues. 

This year we are having a big push on recruitment and we already have several new bowlers signing up for the “Introductory Course”.  We still need more and the best way for obtaining new members is by word of mouth, so we should all be looking at our neighbours, family and friends to see if we can entice them to come and “give it a try”.  We will be sending out handouts to all you on “E” mail before the beginning of April for you to pass on but if you have anyone who has already expressed interest please give their details to Sylvia.


The Sports Club is also having a recruitment push and all the sections are working together to run an “Open Day” on Sunday 13th May so keep that afternoon free in your diary as we hope to have some good bowls that potential new members can see and be persuaded to join in and should be an enjoyable day. More details to be issued shortly. 

FINAL Final reminder. Entries are due in to NWS organiser by 26th April, but as Linda and John have holiday at the beginning of April, not together, we need to get details of entries by the end of March to Linda Pillman or John Garland.
There will be the following 11 events –
Men’s Singles, Pairs and Triples
Ladies’ Singles, Pairs and Triples
Mixed Pairs, Triples and Fours
OPEN Aussie Pairs and UNBADGED Singles
The FINALS will be held at Chertsey BC on Sunday 26 August 2018 

QUIZ NIGHT Saturday 7:00 for 7:30pm 24th March
