Coming up this week ...

Portal News

Just started and continuing through the week on the website is a History of Bowling which concentrates mainly on the period from 1962. There has been some earlier information but the game really took off with the introduction of televised matches.


Easy to produce and with a captive audience the game was meant for television and was a good filler for afternoon channels. That has since changed and the story behind all of that is included in these articles.


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

  • 'Name the Foreign Green' competition featuring greens just outside the town boundaries

  • Some more Veterans League newsletters from 2019 are added

  • An update on the Junior League's fund-raising efforts

  • News of the Yorkshire CCGBA fees for 2021 remains outstanding

  • ... 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 Five most viewed posts over the last week were:

  1. Name The Foreign Green

  2. What does a good team captain look like?

  3. 46 Old photos for the Veterans League album

  4. Another one bites the dust

  5. Decision Day for Veterans League


The homepage photograph has changed today from a seasonally white scene of Marsh United to the unique design of the clubhouse at Thongsbridge. 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.
