Welcome to Auriol at the start of a new year, and we look forward to seeing you in the coming season.
Come to our Open Days
Are you looking for a friendly and sociable sport that's easy to learn and keeps you fit? Why not try bowls FREE at one of our Open Days? These are being held on Sunday 13 May and Saturday 9 June 2018, between 11.00 and 4.00 on both days. All are welcome, and equipment and coaching will be provided by our qualified coaches. Just bring flat-soled shoes, eg. trainers. For more information please phone 020 8394 2863. We're looking forward to welcoming you!
There are regular roll-up sessions for members on three days during the week. These are mixed sessions - open to both men and women - and take place on Monday mornings and evenings, Tuesday mornings, and Thursday mornings. Those wanting to take part in the morning sessions should arrive between 10.30-10.45 for 11.00. The Monday evening sessions re-start on Monday 14 May (once the evenings get lighter) and you need to arrive between 5.30-5.45 for these evening sessions which start at 6.00.
Captains vs. Vice-Captains Match
The traditional curtain-opener to the season took place on Saturday 21 April, with the first leg of the Captains vs. Vice-Captains match (the return leg takes place at the ends of the season). There were signs of post-winter rustiness on all 6 rinks, but the bowling was enthusiastic, and the Captains' team ran out the winners.
Our new Committee for 2018
Congratulations and welcome to our new General Committee, and to all the other club officers who were elected or appointed for the 2018 season. We wish them all a successful season. See Who's Who 2018 for details.
Members are requested to take note of the new club policy regarding Data Protection, which is effective from 25 May 2018. (See Data Protection Policy)
With the start of a new season, members might want (need?) to have a quick look at some useful reminders, on etiquette, on the respective duties of team members, and on minimum lengths (see About our Club)
Our annual presentation of trophies to the club competition champions and finalists took place on Saturday 23 September at King Georges Field Indoor Bowling Club, where around 50 members enjoyed a 3-course meal prepared and served by Carolyn and her team from Love Your Greens, with live music provided by our very own James Rayne in his Swinging Sixties duo. A good time was had by all, and particular thanks for organising the event go to Chris Ballard, Shirley Tracey and Dave Rich (see Events for 2017).
Our weekly Brunch Club moves back to Monday mornings throughout the outdoor season, and is held in the pavilion from 10.00 - 2.00 through to October, when it reverts to Thursdays again. Enjoy food, games, and a really friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
