Our latest South Middlesex League game took place at a very hot Hampton on Wednesday. We arrived to see the end of a club competition game and the players get drenched by the automatic watering system. We could have done with the water ourselves .. as a measure of the speed of the green, there was 6 bowls in the ditch on the first end .. with a medium-length jack! Earlier, Eileen took a worrying tumble on entering the grounds – luckily there were no lasting effects and she led her team of BobL and David to our only success of the afternoon. We came close to replicating Sunday’s comeback on another rink but alas it wasn’t to be and we recorded an overall 8-2 loss. The result moves Hampton into 4th place in the league with Sunbury remaining in 2nd for now.
If you’ve never experienced a team match before please do sign-up, especially the friendlies. They generally take place at the weekends, starting at 2:30pm. After around 2.5-3hrs play of triples we generally retire to the clubhouse for some drinks, snacks and chat. Our captain Di or any existing players can let you have more details. The sign-up sheets are in the clubhouse, alongside the Competitions sheets.
Tuesday Club Night has been going pretty well this season with more folk rolling up than previously. The weather has undoubtedly helped as has the influx of new bowlers who are setting a very high standard of play!
Fri 15th 11am – Friday Morning League
