Sunday 16th June 2019

On Sunday we welcomed Hertfordshire City Ladies Tour.  Together with a little help from ladies from other local clubs we were able to have all seven rinks open  Thanks to a lot of hard work by our members in the kitchen we were also able to offer the ladies a lunch before the match as they had just arrived in Babbacombe direct from Hertfordshire  Despite a very early start in the day for all their members, they played exceptionally well The weather was kind to us and we all thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon

6 June 2019

Since the start of the season we have welcomed various bowling clubs for friendly matches together with tourist clubs from Fossway, Avonmouth, Great Torrington, Suttons and Leicester and County.  We have also hosted the Under 25’s Singles for Bowls Devon.  The weather has not always been kind to us but we have all enjoyed the camaraderie.  Here are a couple of photos from our game against Leicester and County
