Waterlooville Bowling Club

What a month September has been!!  There has been a lot happening at Waterlooville Bowling Club.  The most prestigious event was the formal opening of the new clubhouse.  The Mayor of Havant Councillor Rosy Raines, performed the cutting of the ribbon before declaring the clubhouse open.  Representatives from the various funders, Sports England, Hampshire County Council and Havant Borough Council were also invited.  There were many other guests from departments at Havant Borough Council as well as Havant Sports Association, Martin Critchley architects and various other stakeholders.  Everyone was very enthusiastic with their praise of the new building saying how light and airy it felt, and much more modern.  Fizz and nibbles were the order of the day.

It may be the end of the season for Bowling (although Waterlooville Bowling club continue to play throughout the winter) but September saw the presentation of trophies for the various competitions during the summer.  Brian LeMarquer had an excellent season by winning all but one of the final matches, as well as winning the Portsmouth and District Ivan Robb Trophy and being a runner up (with Derek Holt) in the County Golden Pairs.  The presentation of trophies was held at the Presidents versus Captains day.  A fun day where the Presidents team won 4 to 1!  The day finished with a BBQ and a beer (yes, the bar was open).

What else happened in the month? Ladies social afternoon, another taster day for people to have a go, the continuation of the Get Up and Go course instigated by Havant Borough Council, Yoga course for members.  So much, there is not enough room to report it all.  Why not come along to the club and experience the fun for yourselves?  www.waterloovillebowling.club or phone 07823 887623
