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. Riverside is set in a beautiful park and just a 5 minute walk to the center of Winchester which makes it an easy base from which to explore the historic city.
Winners: Malcolm Otton and David Fisher from English Amputee & Les Autre Bowls Association with the Sponsor of the trophies Marc Gorman from Winchester Caterers.
Marc, Yvonne and a team of helpers, kept everyone supplied with food and drink throughout the day which was much appreciated.
Runners up Clare Hills, Betty Simmance, 96 year old Bill Vickers and Tony Eves from Swan Bowlers. Thanks go to all the bowlers and to the team of helpers and staff from Riverside and volunteers from other clubs who made this a very exciting and enjoyable day.
