Coming up this week ...

Portal News:

Another packed week of Huddersfield bowling news lined up with new postings every day of the week.


The response to the online survey was quite overwhelming with 131 entries from local bowlers in just 48 hours. The high number enables us to use that information with some confidence that it actually reflects the majority of views in the Huddersfield bowling community. We've started sharing the results of that survey today and will conclude them tomorrow.


Still no bowling in sight so we continue to run around trying to find something of interest to post on the website every day. You can help on that front by providing photographs of your club as it is now and teams from the past as well. Tell us a story about your club, some time in history when major things happened in your club so that we can share them with the local bowling community. Tell Us


As well as that we expect to be posting other news every day of the week which will also include ....

  • Veterans League 50th Anniversary season recycled

  • Still more 'Name the Foreign Green' competitions featuring greens just outside the town boundaries

  • Winter League: Planning for Season 2 (or is that Season 1?)

  • 'Return to Bowling' survey results and findings

  • All Our Yesterdays - our feature postings look back at more times in the recent and further back past

  • ... and probably lots more news we are still to learn about some of which might even come from you. Tell us your club news.


The Top Six most viewed posts over the last week have been:

  1. The 'Name the Foreign Green' competition

  2. 'Return to Bowling' Survey

  3. Press reports on outdoors sports priority

  4. Four options for Leagues for 2021 season

  5. Delayed restart problems for Leagues

  6. An alternative future for the Winter League


The homepage photograph has changed today from photographs of the Veterans League Lower Divisions Trophy Final held at Outlane in 2019 to 5 rotating photographs of the Huddersfield Merit Final of 2015 played at Lindley BC. Thanks to the Huddersfield Examiner for permission to add these to our collection.


How about sending me a scene of your club's bowling green or clubhouse and surrounds for inclusion on the website or even the homepage? If you are viewing this site on a mobile phone or tablet you may not be able to see the homepage background photo.

If you like a posting on our homepage then a click on the red heart in the bottom right of that posting will push up the numbers. It is anonymous so don't worry that someone will deduct what you don't tick but it does help to get some positive feedback sometimes and helps us to provide more similar postings in the future.


We now have 118 Website Members and the numbers continue to increase. Being a Member allows you to add your comments to any of the homepage posts and you also get an optional email notification every time a new post is added to the homepage. Become a Member by providing your name and email address, that's all there is to it.


We will be pleased to add your club green photo to our collection and share with other members and maybe even put it on the Homepage. Old team photos are always of interest to our readers as well as photos of greens in days-gone-by. Then if you want to add the story of your year in 2020 then please feel free to do so. So please send us any information about your club, changes in buildings, people or teams and send us any updates and photos that you are happy to share.
