Winter League open now to new teams

Winter League

Preparations are in hand for the 2021-22 Winter League season and we are now open to new teams applying to join the League for the coming season. The posting last week listed some of the changes proposed for the new season and the details of how to apply. This week we pick up on some of the comments from the bowlers who played in the League last year to give an indication of why they bowl in this League.

  • It's important to have a social and friendly competition to help get through the winter months. It's never going to be like bowling in the sunshine but the winter league has many benefits for all crown green bowlers. Jim Baxter, Milnsbridge BC

  • Being able to bowl with friends from my own club during the winter. Nice also to see the same bowlers from other teams each week and can enjoy friendly competition with them and a laugh. Alan Hobson, Thorpe Green

  • Getting out and socialising during the winter months. Mike Thornton, Lindley BC

  • Good for improving the standard of bowling. Dave Cooper, Springwood BC

  • The competitive but friendly atmosphere that the games are played in. Jeff Mellor, Springwood BC

  • Bowling is a way to get out meet people have fun and a good game off bowls love it. It's been fantastic. Malcolm Gilbert, Clayton West

  • Keeps us active throughout the year and continue to see friends and fellow bowlers. Brian Faichney, Huddersfield Recreation Club

  • I enjoy all bowling, in the winter league you come up against any standard of bowler but everyone is friendly, at Springwood it is very well organised and many thanks to all the people involved. Tim Poulter, Clayton West

We are inviting new teams to apply to join the League for the new season starting in October. The closing date for applications is Monday 5 July.
