Some pictures from our 2021 season 

After a long wait the green finally opened on the 26th April. First out was President Dot who looked like she had never been away!


ABOVE - On Thursday 29th May we were playing our first away match with 2 triples at picturesque Wraysbury. We were privileged to be the first on to their brand new artificial surface. This took a little getting used to but a close game ensued with the home side just pipping it by 2 shots, with a fine performance by top rink Jill Walker, Rita Moore and Wendy Ridley.

BELOW - Graeme’s first Early Practice session took place on the Friday morning with 18 keen bowlers out to regain bowling skills in a mixture of singles and pairs games. This series will consist of 6 Friday mornings – a useful way to improve as we get back into the bowling habit!

After a spell of heavy rain it brightened up and on the 19th May we played Windsor Great Park Men in the evening (above). It was a close game and there was some interesting bowling including a dead end followed immediately by a tied end on one rink. It was our first return to catering afterwards too.

The second leg of the Bishop Duppas Shield followed on the 30th May - the weather conditions being much more favourable -  though maybe we were not used to the heat!  We won on 3 rinks but conceded 28 shots, so the day, and the shield, went to Bishop Duppas.

Another traditional match followed a week later on the 5th June, with the 1st leg of the Sunningdale Cup.
This time with 2 Men's Rinks and 2 Ladies' Triples, by the end the ladies were ahead 64-19 and the men just ahead 45-35...

We met Sunbury Sports in the South Middlesex League on June 30th - a 6-4 win to Staines

It was a jolly warm day on the 17th July when the Staines Ladies played the Men. There was interesting bowling on both sides, but it was a convincing victory for the Men. And we welcomed some of our new bowlers to the match green...

The weekend of the 28th and 29th August was for Finals. See below for pictures of the days and the trophy winners.
