Welcome to Torquay Bowling Club

 

Happy Christmas

Lets hope in 2021 we can get back together and play bowls

 

Short Mat – Latest

Following the latest pronouncements from the Government the resumption of Short Mat has been delayed. No games will be  played in December. It is hopes to resume in the new year but that is down to which Covid Tier Tobay is in and the rules that apply to it.

 

Christmas Lunch Date Change – Update 18th November 2020

The Christmas Lunch has been put back to 8th January 2021, still at the Belgrave Sands Hotel, with the same menu and price.

Will everyone attending please pay their outstanding balance by 18th December. Please phone either Penny 01803-292221 or Di 07899-836544 to arrange your payment.

Obviously we do not know what restrictions may apply in January but hope the lunch will go ahead as planned.

 

Scam Warning

We are aware a number of e-mails have been sent to members of the bowling community in Devon purporting to come from bowlers, some of whom you will know or have heard of. Be aware and don’t reply to any e-mail asking for help. Sadly there are a number of scams active at any one time and some links to help keep everyone aware of what is going on have been added to the Links page in the Members area of the website.

 

The 2021 Fixture List

The 2021 Fixture List has been updated (30 November 2020) and is available here.

 

An End of Season Message from Captain Eric

My sincere thanks to all our club members who have rolled up, and further for the manner in which they strictly adhered to the Covid 19 Government rules and guidance issued by Bowls England and adopted by the club. Not forgetting all members who acted as Stewards for each and every game played, and a big shout out to Di Hardwell who has sat by the phone every day through out this Covid period in order to take the bookings in compliance with the track and trace system.
Can I also offer my sincere thanks to Tony, Ray and the Green Team for providing a superb green to play on. Without  a doubt the best.
Cheers
Eric
