Club Competition Draws 2019-20 Now Available

The draws for the Club Competitions 2019-20 have now been made and are available on the web-site at Bowls Activities > Competitions > Club Competition Draws > Club Competition Draws 2019-20. 

They can also be accessed by clicking on this link.

Gary Jones has advised the following about the draws:

  • The draw for the internal competitions was conducted on Fri 15 Nov 19 at the club.  The numbers were drawn by Chris Cranham, Karen Cranham and John Steer.
  • There is only one entry for the Novice Pairs so this competition will not be run.
  • There are only 2 entries for the ladies novice competition but I will let them play on the finals weekend as they have made the effort to enter.
  • There were 4 skips for the ladies drawn fours but only three teams so, the skips were drawn first then the teams which means that one team has two ladies who were nominated as skips.
  • An extra lady is required for the drawn pairs to play with C Davies.

Message from the President, Alan Jones

Welcome to all of you to another year of indoor bowling at Camberley. We have a new caterer. Lee Allen of Allen’s Bespoke Catering took over in the summer. He has already begun providing meals and drinks. Jolly good too! Please give him your support.

As to bowls we have in the region of 170 league teams registered for the winter season. If you are looking for a team or a player, please make use of the league sheets in the binder placed near the reception. Please also be alert to possible league changes at the end of the year. The bowling committee will be proposing changes to meet suggestions made in the recent surveys. This may include an Australian pairs’ league as well as a two wood triples league. There may be a special league for new bowlers and a special club evening. Please be alert to your email inbox and notices in the foyer.

This year the friendlies have been organised for us by John Twyford. If you wish to play, make sure you put your name down in good time on the player availability sheets in the foyer.

This year Steve Bone is our club captain and he will take overall charge of selection of players. Please give him your support especially if he seeks a match captain for the day – not an onerous task. Evelyn Morley takes over from Audrey Ingram in looking after the ladies matches and Arnie Lewis retains charge of the men’s Surrey League matches and external Club Team Competitions. Again, if you are interested in playing in these matches please make sure you put your name down on the player availability sheets in the foyer.

Gary Jones will be continuing in the role of competition secretary after a successful year last year and Will Matthews has agreed to run the Easter Tournament again after the successful event, he ran last year. Please give these events your support.

Alan and Linda Edwards continue to run the regular fun drives so do join those for some good friendly matches. Please give them your full support.

Finally, but by no means least, my sincere thanks to Caroline Kerr, Trevor Prentice, John Steer and Roger Spinks, your other representatives on the bowling committee who have volunteered their time helping to maintain the bowling activities of the club and upon whom the existence and future of the club depends.

Evening Club Closures 7 December to 10 December – League Match Postponement

The Club has been advised that Surrey Highways is now planning to undertake road works at the roundabout on Frimley Road, Camberley from 7 December to 10 December between 8pm and 6am. Once the road closure is in place there will be no access in to or out of Wilton Road for the duration of the closure i.e. from 8pm to 6am. It has therefore been decided to close the Club at 7:30pm on these dates which means it will be necessary to postpone the leagues that were due to be played on those evenings as follows:

LEAGUE 25 – Matches cancelled on 7 Dec 18 To be played on 5 Apr 2019
LEAGUE 5 – Matches cancelled on 10 Dec 18 To be played on 25 Mar 2019

Please note that no daytime leagues or weekend matches are affected on these dates and will run as planned.

Evening Club Closures Postponed

The club closures forced by the roadworks taking place at the Frimley Road roundabout have been postponed, due to postponement of the roadworks.

Trevor Lofty had an email from Surrey Highways to say that they had been advised by the contractor that work on Frimley Road roundabout has unfortunately had to be rescheduled.  This is due to equipment breakdown on the previous night on another job which has had a knock on effect on the works programme.  At this stage they do not have a confirmed date for when works on Frimley Road roundabout will take place but they expect that it will happen sometime in November or December.

So the club will remain open in the evenings from Wednesday 17th – Friday 19th, but it is unfortunately too late for the leagues to be re-scheduled back to these dates.

All the rinks will be available for roll-ups

EIBA Fantastic Fives Finals Sunday 16th September

On Sunday 16th September 2018 Camberley & District I.B.C. hosted the Finals of the E.I.B.A. Fantastic Fives competition.  Four mixed teams, Egham, Havering Blue, Kempston Park and Worthing Pavilion Pirates, played each other in a round robin format of three 2 hour rounds. 

After two rounds Egham and Worthing Pavilion were both in contention with only 3 points separating them.

In the final round both teams won two of the disciplines and so the final result was Egham 20 points and Worthing Pavilion 17 points

Congratulations to Egham IBC on a great win.

The day was a great success and Camberley received many complements from the visitors and officials.
