Tom moves to a small village and soon join's the local bowls club.
All goes well and Tom soon makes many friends apart from Glenda, the village gossip.
Soon there is a rumour being spread by Glenda that Tom is an alcoholic and that she has seen his car parked outside the village pub on several occasions, and this shows he must be inside, boozing and up to no good.
Tom soon get's to hear the rumour but to everyones surprise he does not confront Glenda.
A few nights later Tom parks his car outside Glenda's house, locks it and leaves it there all night.

BINGO

Starts again on Friday 18th. October 2019


             OPENING DAY 2019

  

The first opening game on 20th April 2019 in glorious sunshine, was preceded by the Deputy Mayor,  Councillor Robert Phipps being welcomed by the our President Yvonne Greenwood

 

    

 

Councillor Phipps was invited to put up the first wood of the season

  

 Councillor Green then successfully bowled the first wood of the season 


             .

We followed that with a spider play for a bottle of whisky for our Presidents charity, the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association, a UK charity that provides lifelong support to serving men and women and veterans from the British Armed Forces and their families or dependents, and raised £90.00 overall.  Thanks to our members and visitors generosity

                 

                                  

                                                  

 Watched by a supportive crew.

  

 

After the bowling we move on to the wonderful tea laid on by the ladies.
  
 Following that successful day we look forward to even more success in the rest of the season.

We are a mixed club of ladies and men playing members with a wide age range and around 80 associate members and 1 very important Patron.

We have a team in the Men's  'X' division of the Over 55’s league as well as a ladies team in the newly formed Teignbridge Ladies Triples.There has been various success over the years.  We have won both theMen's  'X' and 'Y' Divisions a couple of years ago.

We entertain a number of touring teams during the summer and feel very privileged that they have chosen our club to compete against on their tour. We make them as welcome as possible and ensure the bar is well stocked.

We are very pleased to advise that we have a defibulator within the club for the safety of our visitors and members.
