That was a roller-coaster week for Wadebridge Bowling Club.

Wadebridge had a couple of excellent results in the Group 2 knock out competitions. The A Team won its Croydon Marks match away at Bude on Tuesday, while the C Team beat Kensey Vale away in the Grenville Taylor.

Sunday 12 June dawned bright dry and warm as the club prepared for the rearranged Junior Taster Day.

The Millennium Mixed Fours side began the season in fine style on Tuesday 10th May away to Bude, winning by 57 shots to 53.

WBC Taster Day Graphic 2022 A4It was a terrific 'Taster Day' at Wadebridge Bowling Club yesterday (Saturday 23rd April). The club opened its doors at 10am and the qualified coaches and their assistants were kept busy by a steady stream of people wanting to have a go at bowls. The bar was open, doing better business in the afternoon as the sun came out, and tea, coffee and biscuits were also available.

Don't forget, there will be a social meeting in the club on 8th April, the night before Opening Day, from 7pm. There's nothing specific planned, you don't have to sign up in advance, just turn up.

Fixtures Secretary George Tinker has just sent the Fixture Booklet 2022 off to the printers to be ready for the opening of the new season.

Wadebridge Bowling Club will open for the new season on Saturday 9th April 2022, with an Opening Day event for members of the club. We hope to see as many members from the 2021 season as possible, and that members from 2019 who took time off due to Covid in 2020-21 will make a return.
