                               OPENING DAY 2018

  

 

The first opening game on 21st April 2018 in glorious sunshine, was preceded by the Deputy Mayor,  Councillor June Green being welcomed by the our President Laurence Davies.  Councillors Sylvia Russell,  Vince Fusco, along with Councillors Roy Phillips, were also in attendance.

Councillor Green 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 around 17 ladies and 30 men playing members with a wide age range and around 80 associate members and 1 very important Patron.

We also have a team in the 'X' division of the Over 55’s leagues. There has been various success over the years.  We have won both the '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.

We are also able to offer free wi-fi connection.

We are also the home of the Teignmouth Open Bowls Tournament. For more information and to enter the Tournament please go to the Tournament page.

We were very pleased to be presented with some art work in the form of a bowler by The Bay Hotel and to be supported by Face Electrical in our newspaper reports.

During the summer months we have a number of visitors to the town who try bowls for their first time and will hopefully return home and contact their local club. We are aware that the impression they get from us will affect their future possible membership.
