This comp was first held in 2019 and won by John Davis and Barry Wales. It is a quick-fire affair with pairs picked from a hat and all played out in the one afternoon.
We could not play in 2020 (COVID) and in 2021 it was won by Julia Stannard and Goff Lane and John and Goff made it to the finals on opposing teams. This year they features once again.
The final was played over 5 ends and both teams scoring 3 and 2 each and was won by a single shot 6 shots to 5 by Paul Stephens and John Davis. The unfortunate losing finalists by the narrowest of margins where Jane Beardsell and Goff Lane.
Thanks to all members that took part and to the organisers.
The retiming of the WD Benevolent Triples competition last year (I moved it into September), seemed to work well. So this year I settled on the equivalent date, Friday 16 September 2022. Gloucester City and Gloucester Spa Bowling Clubs are again providing the venue. [ Even if it is your club Finals Weekend, there is every likelihood that any games you need to play can be scheduled on the two main days, rather than Friday evening !]
Anyway, lots of people have found this a very pleasant and relaxing day of bowling, with the added possibility of winning a national title without even going outside our own county !
Would Secretaries and WD Delegates please ensure that this information is once more circulated within your club and hopefully displayed on the notice board. Many thanks indeed. All details on the sheet supplied.
The PDF link below will give you a list of forthcoming dates for the internal club competitions. Download it to view or print.
Don't forget to check out who you are playing and book the game if you are first on the list before the close date for each round. You may need to book the rink too, in case others want to play their matches at the same time :-)
Friday evening of 15th October 2021 saw us all collect together for an evening of fun, food, skittles and trophy presentations for the outstanding winners of this year's inter-club competitions.
Many of the matches were close run so huge respect to all who took part.

NMBC 2021 with Captain Jane Beardsell, winners of ....The Bowls Challenge Cup.....an annual match between NMBC and G.B. Britton (Bristol) played since 1929.
On the hottest day of the year so far - taking in lots of liquids - one team emerged as the clear winners.
Congratulations and well played to Steve, Julie and Goff.
