Welcome to our 50th anniversary year!
Founded in 1967, Auriol Bowling Club celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017, and there will be a number of celebrations taking place throughout the year, chief among them being our Dinner and Dance on 1st April 2017 (see below, and Events for 2017 page on our website).
50th Anniversary Dinner & Dance
Auriol Bowling Club’s 50th anniversary celebrations have kicked off in style. The Mayor of Epsom and Ewell George Crawford QPM, founder member Lionel Sellers and dignitaries from the bowling world joined members, partners and friends to celebrate this milestone at a Dinner Dance at Kingswood Golf and Country Club on 1 April. Read the full story in our Events for 2017 section.
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.
You are welcome to pop in on a Thursday morning at 10.45 for 11.00 for a free 'taster' session. No special clothes required, just bring flat-soled shoes, and coaching and equipment will be provided.
For more information please don’t hesitate to contact the Club Secretary David Regan on 020 8337 8919, or visit About Our Club.
A very big ‘thank you’ on behalf of all our members to the whole team involved in making our Finals Day on Sunday 3 September such a great success. There are too many of you to mention by name, but from the competition organisers, through the markers & scorers, the entire catering team who laid on such a great spread, and to the hardy souls who stuck out the intermittent drizzle to support the players – THANK YOU!
Very many congratulations to all the finalists, and to the new club champions, including the ladies singles champion for 2017, Di Newman (haven’t we heard that name before?), and the new men’s singles champion, James Seeley. It was great to see so many new or recent members’ names on the roll of honour – and we’ll surely see them appear again in the future (see Results for 2017).
A really good crowd of around 50 members and guests enjoyed an excellent fish and chip supper on Saturday 12 August. The meal was provided by Freshfry, the top local 'chippie', to their usual high standards, and the accompanying strawberries & cream dessert was produced by the club's catering team. For more details see the Events for 2017 page.
The combined BBQ and Fun Day which took place on Sunday 30 July (postponed from 11 June) was described by those who attended as "the best ever". For the first time in several years the catering and cooking was run entirely by club members, and the general verdict was that it "couldn't be faulted". For more details see the Events for 2017 page.
Many congratulations to Margaret Mead, Andrea Nunney and Doreen Weight in winning a Bowls International Hot Shots Award for scoring a 'Perfect 9' in a Cristal League match against Sutton Common. The last time one of our Ladies teams achieved this was in 2012.
