The Bowling Green Is Now CLOSED!

Anyone who has bowled on our green in the second half of the 2017 season will be aware that large parts of it were in a poor condition. Therefore the green was closed a little earlier than normal to enable a prompt start to the necessary remedial work. The green is expected to be ready for the beginning of the 2018 season so the inconvenience to all will be hopefully be minimal. 

Increase in Bowling Levies for 2018

At the November 2017 committee meeting a vote in favour of increasing the bowling levy to £1 per player per match was passed. This will be in force from the beginning of the 2018 bowling season. As current bowlers are well aware, we have been having reparatory work done to our green through the autumn to prepare it for the 2018 season. This work has been expensive and, to maintain the green through the 2018 season, the costs will increase greatly from those of previous years also. Therefore this increase is necessary to help cover the costs of the ongoing green repairs and the forthcoming maintenance.

Male Bowlers Required for Saturday Afternoons

During the 2017 season our Saturday afternoon Ballcraft Engravers Huddersfield League men's teams were hit particularly hard by the ill health of a number of bowlers. Consequently on some Saturdays we failed to raise 18 men to fill our two teams and had to forfeit matches. We are now actively seeking bowlers to help fill our teams for the 2018 season. If you can help, please contact our Saturday 1st team captain, Richard Hartley either by phone / text (07500 002583) or e-mail (rih2010@btinternet.com).

During 2017, if you were registered with another club in this league and found you were not being selected and would welcome a new challenge you would be made most welcome at Outlane. That also goes for beginners wishing to take up the sport. Thank you very much.
