From the President


Welcome to the 2016-2017 season. To both old hands and newcomers the Fendalton Bowling Club provides excellent facilities and good company based around the family sport of bowls.

The coming season is very full with the usual mix of competition and social games throughout along with our co-hosting of the World Bowls tournament during late November early December 2016. An enormous amount of work is being expended in the preparations for this prestigious international contest and it will surely result in a memorable event, bringing credit upon both the sport of bowls and upon the Fendalton Club. Equally importantly it will provide for us all the opportunity to witness competitive matches of the highest standard in the club’s excellent environment.

We like to be known as “the friendly club” and an increasing membership is the best way to retain and build both sporting vitality and camaraderie. Bring a friend along to sample the pleasures of a sport for all ages in the loveliest environment.

Our selectors will be assessing the level of interclub competitions appropriate to Fendalton’s entries. Please enter your interest on the application sheet and return by the due date. Many additional opportunities – not championships alone - are detailed in our handbook. Take part in as much as you desire.

Coaching continues to be available to both new and experienced bowlers. We all benefit from independent and knowledgeable advice, and it can massively increase the pleasure of our game.

Without sponsors we wouldn’t exist. Note the names of our sponsors in our publications and around the club and use their services, mentioning “Fendalton Bowling Club” every time. Their continuing support depends on our members’ feedback.

The sparkling condition of the club is a credit to our volunteers who so willingly donate some of their time to keeping the club running … not only through our formal bowls-related structuressuch as game organisation and coaching but equally through such important and valued activities as catering, gardening and contributing to social activities. Thanks to everyone who currently supports our club in so many ways. The more volunteers the lighter the load!

May you all have a happy and successful season and continue to enjoy the friendship of our club, its facilities and activities, both on and off the green.

Enjoy!

Alastair Stokes
President
