Only six weeks to go ...


Thank you Feoffees Lions club members

With only six weeks to go before the season begins, we are pushing to finish many of the necessary tasks needed to help the clubhouse look its best. One of those tasks last month was the installation of a new fire shutter in the hatch between our kitchen and the main room. We would like to say a big thank you to the Lions, the Feoffees, a legacy from Harry ‘Chappie’ Sparrow, and donations from current members for their financial support; it meant that we could purchase the shutter earlier than anticipated. We look forward to making use of the hatch over the summer, serving refreshments to our visitors, opponents, and spectators.


Our next major task is to complete the new supporting wall and spectator area. The new cement accessible ramp is ready, the rails are up, and there are just a few little jobs left to finish that area off. Once the weather is drier (hopefully soon), the new wall will be painted, and the plant pots and seating set out around the green. In early April, members will be spring cleaning throughout the clubhouse, restocking the bar, checking diaries to see which friendly fixtures they can play in, and pondering which club competitions to enter. And our greenkeepers Vic and Vincent will be installing the new ditch mats, and visiting the club almost daily to ensure the green is in top condition for our opening gala on the 14th of April.


For those of you not familiar with us, Tetbury Bowls Club has been integral to the community for over a century. Our 6-rink green is a wonderful setting to enjoy a leisurely roll up with family or friends, or for pitting your skills in friendly competition. The game of bowls has something to offer for everyone. Regardless of age or ability, from a beginner eager to learn to seasoned bowlers seeking camaraderie and competition, bowls is a sport for all.


Our clubhouse, with its cozy bar and well-equipped kitchen, allows members to gather to share stories, celebrate victories, and forge lasting friendships. The outdoor bowls season runs from April through September. And, during these months, the club is buzzing with laughter, friendly banter, and spirited matches. But it’s not all about competition—we host a variety of fun social events throughout the year. There’s always something happening.


If you’re interested in learning how to play lawn bowls, our initial open days will be on the 27th and 28th of April (more info is available on https://www.tetburybowlsclub.co.uk/playbowls-juniordayevents). New players who join will be given 4 free coaching sessions and plenty of support and guidance. Whether you’re a curious newcomer or a seasoned bowler, we invite you to contact us at 07414 274375 with any questions about membership.
