DBE vs Carlton Enderby IBC
DBE took their travelling band of bowlers to Carlton Enderby for an afternoon match against their Indoor Bowls Club. Both fielded mixed teams and the match turned into a very challenging competition with Carlton eventually being victorious by 79 – 59 shots. The score did not reflect the closeness of this match that was played in a very competitive but friendly manner.
Well done to all and excellent catering.

On arriving at the club for the Top Region Challenge at 8am (far too early afraid of getting held up in traffic) you would have been excused if you had thought that winter had arrived. It was bitterly cold. Fortunately, my husband had the foresight to make a flask of coffee and a breakfast roll which we tucked into and soon warmed up.

National Outdoor Singles Qualifiers
Bowlers going through to the National Outdoor Singles Finals at Leamington Spa on Sunday 16th July are as follows;
The format for the finals will be the same as the qualifying games.
Bowlers will draw out of the hat for which of the two groups they will play in. There will be a round robin in each group followed by the two group winners playing in the final.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the four clubs, Selby BC, Polly BC, Egham and Wellington BC’s who kindly let us use their facilities for the regional qualifiers, providing markers and sustenance throughout the two days. You were all WONDERFUL!
I wish all of our bowlers competing in both the National Singles and Pairs at Leamington on the 15th and 16th July, the best of luck and good bowling.
