Well, June has been fun; mostly wet, often windy and
frequently cold enough to wear 4 layers. As the month comes
to a close we have finally seen a hint of summer and the
warmth we all want for our bowling days. We’ll soon be saying
it’s too hot!

• Monday ladies afternoons from 1.30pm - We are on the
green ready to play by 2.00pm .You must check in (text or
Whatsapp accepted) by 1.30pm latest so that teams can be
organised. Thank you to everyone who plays on a Monday
and also many thanks to the ladies who make or bring
cakes and to the bar team for opening.

• Dennyside Charity Day Monday 29th July ; It was decided
that all disc games and the ladies afternoon are cancelled
so that the focus can be on this event.I’m sorry to lose
another Monday afternoon but it is for a good cause .

• Inter Club Leagues ; Affinity and 20/20 Leagues - Get your
names on the availability sheets please. All of these games
require you to wear the Club shirt with either black (Affinity)
or white (20/20 league). July teams are now being selected
and the first team sheets are up on the board. August (!!)
availability sheet is up and needs plenty of names please.

• County : Albert Crabb Double Rink ; Our first match was
on the 20th June against White Hall. Happy to report that
we won home and away. Home : 24-20, Away : 23-9. Well
done to all the ladies who played. Our next opponents are
Rayleigh on Thursday 18th July at 6.00pm. Supporters
always welcome.

• Club Competitions ; Do get your competition games
organised within the deadlines. It makes life easier; not just
for Lizzie but also for everyone waiting to play their next

• ECWBA Ben. Triples Day 11th July ; This will is at South
Benfleet and Canvey B.C. We have 4 teams entered. Don’t
forget to take your lunch ladies!

• Club friendlies - Please put your names down and take
part. It is often difficult to raise teams for friendlies and they
will be lost without your support.If you enjoy mixed games,
these are for you.

• Affinity and 20/20 League Results are mixed; some good
wins, some spectacular meltdowns ,but some elements are
consistent; teams are all playing to the best of their abilities
and being sociable hosts or guests after their games.
Latest results:
20/20 v. Runwell 18th June ; 19-13 win and 14-24 loss.
Affinity v. White Hall 14th June ; 9-22 loss and 11-22 loss

by BP).

We appreciate that not everyone comes into the club regularly. If you would like to
be included for selection you can text, Whatsapp, email or phone providing you give
plenty of notice.

Team selections (Affinity and 20/20 league) will be made up to 2 weeks ahead of matches where
at all possible. You must be proactive and make yourselves available - we want as many
ladies to play in competitive games as possible but we do not have time to phone you to ask
you to play.
