The Bowls Club is nearing the end of the competitive League season with just a few matches left. The good news is that our Ladies in the New Forest League, are at the top of their division, so we are hoping for some success from our lovely lady bowlers. We are also in the Final of the Mixed Triples League Cup. Paul Tanner just missed out on progressing to the last 16 of the County singles championship, losing 20-21. Marie Clarke reached the semis of the New Forest Champion of Champions.
Everyone is talking about the weather, and it is no different at the Bowling Club. As you can imagine, the hot, dry weather has meant we have had to cancel matches – and it affects the condition of the Green, but we are doing our best to keep it a nice surface to play on. The Green Team have just purchased a new mower which will improve the playing surface for years to come. The Club would like to extend gratitude to Downton Parish Council and the Wiltshire County Area Board for their support in this purchase.
