Fancy trying something new?
Are you looking for a friendly and sociable sport that’s easy to learn and keeps you fit? For a combination of fitness, friendship and fun the game of bowls is hard to beat, and at Auriol Bowling Club you’ll find the emphasis is as much on enjoyment as on winning every competition. That said, the club runs teams in men’s, ladies’ and mixed external leagues, so there are plenty of opportunities for more experienced players to test their skills against players from other clubs.
For more information please don’t hesitate to contact the Club Secretary David Regan on 020 8337 8919, or visit
FINALS DAY(S) 2016
With Finals Day starting warm and dry at Auriol on Saturday 3 September, the stage was set for some lively bowling. There were plenty of close-fought matches among the various finals, with perhaps the closest one being the men’s veterans match between Vic Saunders and Chris Mead, eventually won 21-20 by Vic. The new club singles champions for 2016 are Diann Newman and Mike Bone – so congratulations to them – and congratulations to all the other winners and finalists who competed for the various titles, both on the Saturday, and also on the reserve Finals day on Monday 5 September and Monday 12.
Thanks are due to the markers, scorers and umpires for their invaluable contribution to the day, and above all to that of the Competitions Secretary, Vic Saunders, who yet again masterminded the programme, made more complicated by the fact that some members were playing in four or five finals, spread over two days! Thanks to the dozens of club members and guests who came along to support the event, and our thanks to the catering team for laying on such a splendid buffet lunch.

MESSAGE FROM ALAN WILLIAMS & FAMILY TO AURIOL MEMBERS
I would just like to say thank you very much for your kind donations to the Sutton Meals on Wheels Service in memory of Hazel. The total amount collected was £1258. It will go towards helping those less fortunate than ourselves, and shows us all how much Hazel was loved and admired. Many thanks again. Alan.

Survey from Bowls England
Why do you play bowls? That’s one of the key questions Bowls England is asking in this year’s National Participation Survey that has been organised in conjunction with the Bowls Development Alliance (BDA).
The survey, which takes less than five minutes to complete, asks a number of key questions and the combined results will provide a detailed breakdown of participants within the sport.
Results will be used to inform future development of the sport in conjunction with the BDA and other key stakeholders.
Tony Allcock MBE, Bowls England Chief Executive, said: “It is vital for the future of the sport that we hear the views of those inside the sport currently, those who no longer play and also those who have not yet been inspired to take up bowls. By hearing from these three different groups of people, Bowls England and the BDA will be in a significantly enhanced position when working to increase the numbers of people participating in our sport. I would urge all of our members to take a few minutes to complete the survey.”

Note to all: Please circulate this request widely to encourage response from your members/playing colleagues etc.
