Riverside Indoor Bowling Club in Winchester, Hampshire

Annual Regional Day on Saturday 25th March 2017.

The event was organized by the Swan Bowlers who run weekly sessions for bowlers with a physical disability at Riverside. On what proved to be the sunniest day of the month, 26 bowlers and their supporters from Windsor Royals, Aylesbury Area Disabled Club, Five Rivers Indoor Bowling Club, English Amputees & Les Autres Bowls Association and Swan Bowlers played in the pair’s competition.

Sadly 3 bowlers had had to pull out in the last few days not giving time for those on the waiting list to make travel and accommodation arrangements. I had to put a limit of 24 on the entries in order to make it a good tournament in the two days. Continue reading “Ann Trotman Singles Report”
