17th January Message from Bowls England

 

Further to the news releases on Thursday 3rd January, I am delighted to confirm that there has now been sufficient interest for a women’s rink to enter both the Tiger Bowls World Invitation and the One Belt One Road World Invitation, which will take place in Hong Kong and China in March.

 

The individuals endorsed are:

Emily Ferguson (Kent), Teresa Orriss (Surrey), Steph Crates (Surrey) and Margaret Smith (Surrey)

 

Bowls England wishes these players the best of luck for both Tournaments.

 

4th January Congratulations to CHARLIE SOUTER on his endorsement by Bowls England to compete in the Tiger Bowls World Invitation event in Hong Kong in March. Charlie is in a team of 12 bowlers participating in this prestigious event poised to become one of the signature bowls events on the International Bowls Calendar. Being one of the largest annual International Lawn Bowls events in the world Tiger Bowls has, in the past, attracted over 500 bowlers to take part in the event.

 

29th December  Surrey County Women’s Bowling Association would like to congratulate Enid Bakewell, formerly member of Sutton BC and County badged player, on receiving an MBE in the New Year Honours List for services to women’s cricket.  Her batting was as outstanding as her bowling!

15th November BOWLS SURREY

Following the decision passed unanimously at the Annual General Meetings of both the SCBA and SCWBA the unified County Organisation will be renamed  'Bowls Surrey'. There will be one Constitution that will cover the administration of the Organisation. There will be no change to the way in which each Association operates, they will continue as SCBA and SCWBA and carry out their day to day activities such as competitions etc​. as they do at present. The one major change is that there will be only one AGM in November 2018. A review of the Rules and Regulations is being carried out at present and in the meantime the Rules and Regulations from the previous Constitutions should be used.
