“Open Day – A Huge Success”

With 25 people walking through the door to try bowls for the
first time our Bank Holiday Open Day was a great success.
Five signed up as full members on the day, another five the
following day and a real prospect of several more over the
coming weeks.
But you haven’t missed the boat – yet. It’s got a full head of
steam, it’s loosening it’s bow-line, it’s tooted its fog horn but
you can still jump aboard for a free taster session by phoning
Laurence on 07714 935915 NOW!

Wadhurst throw open the doors to everyone this Bank Holiday Monday

Wadhurst Bowls Club are participating in Bowls England’s Big Bowls Weekend and invite anyone over the age of 13 to rock-up, get down and have a bash at bowls for the first time.  Often seen as a pastime for older people, bowls is re-inventing itself with a a new fast paced version of the traditional game called Bowls Bash.  Ideal for beginners the concept has been ‘borrowed’ from Australia.  It’s just starting in the UK but you can have a go at Wadhurst Bowls Club Monday May 27 between 11 and 2 pm.  All ages welcome, it’s free and fun!  Give Laurence a call on 07714 935915 to register your interest.

Green Maintenance

Dear Members

If you can spare a few hours to help maintain the green, please come along on a Monday morning, or speak to Peter, our greenkeeper.  After your jobs are all done, sit down with a cup of coffee and enjoy this wonderful view.

Thank you to all our sponsors whose banners you can see on the fence.



Thank you to all our sponsors (by Laurence Worton)

Pictured above is our club Treasurer, Heather Worton, receiving a sponsorship cheque for their continuing support of the club as indeed we are to all the local businesses who help keep Wadhurst Bowls one of the top clubs in the county.  Our list of sponsors and supporters continues to grow but at the time of writing they include:  
Specsavers (Tunbridge Wells), Tate Fencing and Automation
Jempson’s Supermarkets, Wadhurst Probus Club
Archway Builders (Burwash), Dale Hill Golf and Hotel
Ben Grieg Motors, C. Waterhouse & Sons
Autumn Financial Planning
We ask all our members to support these generous organisations.  They have shown trust and faith in us and we now need to show the same support for them.  We start the season on Saturday 20 April with a ‘drive’ involving as many club members
as we can squeeze onto the green at once followed by a friendly match against Grosvenor (Tunbridge Wells) on 27th.  We start the defence of our Horam League title, away at Rotherfield, on Sunday 28th.  
Think you might like to have a go?  
We will be hosting open sessions on Monday 27 May between 11 - 2pm as part of Bowls England’s Big Bowls Weekend.  
Can’t wait that long? (or make that date?) then contact Laurence on 07714 935915 and we can arrange another time.
Keeeeep Bowling!

Yes, we are back - well almost.... (by Laurence Worton)

With spring in the air and a skip in our step the Wadhurst bowlers are just itching to get back
out there on the hallowed turf next month.
There is something special and so promising about the start of a new season. Will we continue
where we left off last year? Will all those foibles and wrinkles have been ironed out as, just
like a beautiful butterfly emerging from a chrysalis, we find we have turned into something
new -formidable bowling machines! – or will it be a year of disappointment, first round exits
and missed opportunities?
No – of course not. We are Wadhurst. We are the reigning Horam League Champions, The
Border Cup Winners. The Tunbridge Wells league runners-up. We having winning in our
blood!
New sponsors have been signed-up from the local business community to help with the costs
of maintaining our green in such superb condition and we thank them hugely. During the
autumn and winter the grass was deeply scarified, top dressed and re-seeded and is now
being regularly cut as the mower blade-height is gradually reduced to its optimum height of
5mm.
But what can we offer for new members who are coming to bowls for the first time?
Well, put this in your diary now – Monday 27 May from 11 -2pm we are throwing open
the doors to anyone who would like to give bowls a try. All ages welcome. All equipment
provided, just wear trainers, or go bare-foot….
This is the equivalent of a non-league footballer getting the opportunity to play cup-final
football at Wembley or the local tennis player walking out onto Wimbledon’s Centre Court.
Well, maybe not quite the same, but you get the idea. More info. next month unless you want
to register your interest now by phoning Laurence on 07714 935915
