Market Bosworth Bowling Club

What a year the bowling club has enjoyed, so far. All the good weather has helped for some great bowling and excellent competitions.

The ‘A’ team in the Hinckley and District league have gained promotion to division 1 having finishing second in division 2, no mean feat at this level, so many congratulations to Captain Roger Paice and his squad.

The ‘B’ team, playing in the same league knock out cup won the completion at Countesthorpe. A very close game versus Blaby saw some great bowling. Captain John Dagley, playing with Chris Hayes and Richard Chantler got off to a brilliant start and held the advantage to the end. The second rink of Mick Jones, Roy Rogers and Pam Rogers was a closer affair, nip and tuck from the first end to the last but with Market Bosworth coming out on top. The third rink of Mel Tuckwell, Belinda Chantler and Ann Jones, gallantly came back from a slow start, only to lose on the last end by just one shot. The result of the match already decided. Well done to one and all.

The ‘C’ team, playing in the Coalville and District league narrowly missed out on promotion from Division B , losing on the last day of the season to the eventual winners, New Lount. Well done to the whole squad and especially Capt. Jeanette Smith (and “Catering Manager” Mel Tuckwell).

The Wednesday friendly team also have had a successful year by winning all three of the double leg cups. This team tries to mix experienced players with new members and has, as the name implies, been played in a happy yet competitive manner. Winning all three cups in one year has been a long time coming. Excellent results from all who played.

All the club knockout competitions are coming to a head with finals weekend being held on 15th and 16th of September. Good luck to all those still involved.

Training sessions held every Saturday in August for new, as well as old members, have been run by Richard Newby who recently gained his level 2 coaching badge. These sessions were fun and useful to all. Several new members joined in and have since joined the club.

Away from the actual bowling side of the club, we came second in the 2018 Market Bosworth Scarecrow Trail Competition, thanks to Tricia Tams who knitted all of the characters in our Alice in Wonderland exhibit. Well done Tricia.

Also, the clubhouse has taken on a new look with the addition of a new cupola and clock. A generous donation from the Parish Council as well as in house fundraising paid for the item which has blended in and enhanced the building and surrounding area.
