A huge thank you to everyone who attended we had 120 people battling it out all evening, please keep your eyes peeled for the next big event to be announced...

 

Whiteknights One Day Singles

I am delighted to announce we will be having a one day singles tournament open to all members male and female on Sunday 20th January 2019. This will be running throughout the day, if we require more entries we will extend this to local clubs. I am also delighted to announce we have secured three sponsors so far for the competition- Cotswold Bowls Shop, Beechwood Mortgages and The Flower Loft Florist.

This would be an attempt at a rehearsal for potentially holding one of these on a larger scale next year, that would be open to all players around the country.

The format would be played in sets of 7 ends, best of 2 sets and if a tie at 1 set all then a tie break of 3 ends.

The entry to the competition would be as per the main UK open singles, £20.

£5 from each player would go to club in rink fees and the rest would go into a prize pot for the day.

The bar and kitchen will be running all day.

I anticipate we will get a good response to this, so please get your entry in quickly…!

 

Congratulations

Well done to Robert Newman on winning the Home Counties Singles at Herga IBC.

Well done to Edna Orchard on winning an award for her service to the sport at the Wokingham Borough Council Sports Awards.

 

Christmas Lunch Bookings

Thank you to all those who attended the Christmas lunch on the 16th December, it was a great lunch provided by our caterers.

Spectrek

We are supporting the Lions Charity with the collection of old spectacles for recycling.

There is a green bin next to the Hot Drinks machine for these to go into.

The initiative , known as "Spectrek", operates continuously and on behalf of the Lions Club they collect about 7000 spectacles per year ( running total to date is 75000 ) which get refurbished in France and then get distributed to third world countries.
