BW Ladies Finals

On Saturday July 30th the BW Ladies Championship Finals were held at Supermarine BC. The results can be seen in the Competitions Section of this site.

Thank you to all at Supermarine who worked hard to host this event and to all the spectators who came along to watch and support the competitors.

The trophies will be presented at the BWL Lunch which will take place on Saturday 12th November at Devizes Conservative Club following the Annual Meeting at Devizes BC.

A few photos from the day

BW Men Finals

On Sunday 31st July the BW Men’s County Championship Finals took place at Devizes BC. This was a change of  date compared to the last few years when these Finals have been played in September. The change has proved to be a success and it was possible to schedule the games all on one day so there was not a clash with the BW Ladies event which also took place this weekend although not at the same venue.

There was some superb, world class bowling on display with close games and even closer heads. The greens were running at a lovely pace and there were many positive comments for the Green keeper.

The members of Devizes BC had, once again, provided excellent hospitality with the kitchen and bar busy all day so a BIG thank you to all involved.

The results are in the Competitions section of this site but here are some photos of the winners and runners up.
