Ringwood Bowling Club

A friendly club on the fringe of the New Forest, close to Bournemouth

Despite the very strong winds and rain, the Club promotional display went ahead at the Ringwood Meeting House on Friday.

A HUGE thank you goes out to Debbie, who organised the event, Audrey Merrington, Sue Wyatt, Jenny Blake, Helen Blackiston, Dave Lewis and Denis Newham for the work they put in promoting the Ringwood Bowls Club’s Bowls' Big Weekend Open Days.

Debbie reports, 'The weather was grim! Wind, rain and cold and yet each of the above gave a full 2 hours in the clubs name. As you would expect there were fewer people around and those that were rushed by to get out of the weather. However, we managed to get 2 confirmed bookings and a dozen interested in coming on one of the Open Days with a further few who want to come along at a later date.'

Today's Results

Bowls England Men's Top Club versus New Milton. The rain held off this morning for the early start at Ringwood. Sadly, it's New Milton who go through to the next round, winning one of the two singles matches, the triples and the fours on an extra end. Final score 2 - 3.

Bowls Hampshire Ladies' Thornberry Cup versus Southbourne. The Ladies were not so lucky with the weather in Ringwood. The rain came in during the proceedings and in a very close match were pipped at the post by just 4 shots. Rinks 0.5 - 1.5. Shots 35 - 39.
