SUTTON BOWLS CLUB NOV 2018
Sadly last year we said goodbye to 2 of our long-standing members, who passed away – Maurice Backhouse, our Green-keeper and Len Backhouse, our Secretary of many years. Also one of our newest recruits, Ivan Clark, who also suddenly passed away.
We will really miss them and are currently fundraising for a memorial bench for Maurice and Len.
On a more positive note, we came 4th in the Woodbridge Bowls League this season which was a big improvement on recent seasons and surprised ourselves by managing to go further in the various cups we entered!
Several of our members played in local tournaments and County cups, as well as representing the Woodbridge League in the inter league fixtures.
This closed season we have started playing short mat bowls in the Memorial Hall on the first Tuesday evening of the month. All welcome.
Next season we will be entering the Fynn Bowls League as well as the Woodbridge League which means we will be playing on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
As usual, we are continually looking for new members to join us, so if you want to try playing short mats indoors, or fancy a practice on the green or want to join the club, give either myself a call on 01394 549567, or David on 01394 411169
