  • SEPT 5th 2018 PRESENTATION EVENING & CANDLELIT BOWLS
    Hello Everyone

    I am writing to remind you of the change of date for our Presentation Evening and Candlelight Bowls. You will see in the Fixture book that the date was 06 October - we were advised that there are a number of Bowlers who will be going on holiday over that weekend so the date has been brought forward to the Friday. 
    The start time is the same - please arrive at 6.00pm - the Club Presentations will be first. You can of course wear what you like. Remember that if you are playing in the Candlelight Bowls, (which is a lot of fun!), it may be chilly so warm clothes are advised. 
    As this is the the last day of bowling this season bowls shoes are not necessary. There will be a finger buffet during the evening - cost £5 per head.
    For catering purposes please add your name to the list in the Clubhouse.

    MACMILLAN NURSES - coffee morning Friday 28 September - 10.30 - 12.30

    As in previous years we will be holding our Coffee Morning for the Macmillan Nurses Charity on Friday 28 September 10.30am -12.30pm.
    Please come along and support us and this charity. We will be having a raffle, bring-and- buy stall, and lots of cakes and tea/coffee of course!

    Regards
    Chris

  • SEPT 14th 2018 LADIES INVITATION TOURNAMENT
    The Witterings Ladies were very pleased to welcome 10 teams of Ladies from local Clubs to join us last week for our Ladies Invitation. We were very lucky with the weather although it did turn very cold during the afternoon. 
    After the match we all sat down to a very nice meal followed by the prizegiving. It was a very close result with the 2nd and 3rd places of Pagham and Little Spain respectively gaining 25 1/2 points and Witterings Ladies taking 1st place with 26 points.
    The winning team were: Margaret Bowell, Val Hooker, Diane Leach and Carole Tuffin (SK). Everyone enjoyed a very successful afternoon.

    During the afternoon we were very pleased to present a cheque to - 'Concern for Life' - a small children's charity based at St Richard's Hospital, in the sum of £526, which was raised by a raffle and auction.

    Witterings & District BC were delighted to welcome the tourists from Alexandra Park BC from Bath in Somerset, to their green today.
    Witterings were the first fixture of their tour and when the coach arrived, after a long journey, they were welcomed by officers of the Club and enjoyed a buffet lunch supplied by the Wittering Ladies. The weather was just right and amid much laughter and good humour the match was played in the best of bowling camaraderie.

    Following the match, the raffle and plenty of good hearted jokes, the members of Alexandra Park departed for their hotel in Worthing. 
     The Witterings will have fond memories of this afternoon and wish the Tourists continued success in their visits to other clubs in West Sussex on their tour.

  • SEPT 1st & 2nd. CLUB FINALS WEEKEND.
    With the weather perfect and the greens immaculate Witterings Bowls Club was all set for an enjoyable two days of matches.
    Club members, friends and associates were all in attendance giving their support to those taking part. 
    Credit must go to Gwilym Morgan, our Competitions Secretary, whose organisation ensured a smooth running table of matches.
    Wiggies and markers all played their part, although they were bathed in sunshine so no complaints there.
    The bar and kitchen staff were invaluable keeping everybody fed and watered from breakfast until teatime during the two days.
    No mean feat and all done by willing and smiling ladies.  

    The standard of bowling was extremely high and the spectators were treated to some nail biting and exciting finishes.
