SKILLS DAY. Friday 8th Nov 10am – 3.30pm

The Kent Coaching Team will be visiting the club next month to help members with all aspects of bowls.  The day is aimed at players of all levels, but is particularly beneficial to the newer, less experienced bowler.
The day comprises a video of your delivery, analysis, purposeful practice, reading the head, measuring and fun.   There are only 20 places available so please book early to ensure your place.  
£12 to include snack lunch.

BOY and GIRL SCOUTS – HELP WANTED

In December we are being visited by a group of boy/girl scouts. (Although an annual event, this year it will hopefully provide a boost our new Youth Group). We will need help for this event and will publish date and time in due course, 

NEW – WEEKEND OPENING

Dave Fleming will, for a trial period, be opening the club on Saturday mornings from 9.30 to 12.30.

Hopefully you will take advantage of this to re-arrange any internal league games or just come for a roll-up session.

The club will also be open on Sunday mornings 10.00am – 12pm, when Joan Moffat will be helping youngsters in our new Youth Group (8+), and others are giving coaching to potential new members.

Please call reception for rink availability if you intend coming on either day or just turn up.

MEN’S KENT LEAGUE MATCH v SWALE Saturday 12 October

Following a hard fought home game against Swale, the first of the season, Sevenoaks secured an honourable 3 points although they lost overall by a margin of 18 shots, 106-124.

All 3 of our winning rinks won by the same margin of 6 shots whilst 2 of them also won 13 ends.  The ultimate top rink, with the highest number of shots, was that of Brian Akery, Gerald Gardiner, Peter Hicks and skip Ray Fuller.

Thanks go to 3 members playing their first Kent League match – David Miles, Colin Stewart and Gerry Waghorn.  Would all men please sign up for future games – we really do need your support.

 

Welcome to the start of the 2019/2020 Winter Season.
