Here is a brief summary of 2019 season.
We started late April with Monday practice nights, or roll ups, as they are also called, before our first game against Cirencester away on the 1st of May. A game we won quite comfortably giving us a good start to the season, in fact we had a very decent season, winning more matches than we lost! Out of 30 matches on the fixture list we won 16 and lost ten (four were cancelled, due to player shortage or bad weather).
On Saturday the 15th June we held the annual Cotswold Woollen Weavers Tournament, kindly sponsored by Richard Martin. This is an all-day event starting at 9.30 in the morning when twelve teams arrive at the clubhouse. Because a team from Witney pulled out at last minute Filkins had to rustle up a second team – Filkins B, who went on to become runners up in their group. In the final Witney Town won against Carterton. Click here for pictures
As well as the fixture list with an average two games per week playing teams from across Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire, we also play internal club matches. The outdoor bowls season draws to an end in September when the green is put to rest for winter.
We are always looking for more players to join us. If you are interested please come along on a Monday evening at 6pm (from the end of April). You don’t need to know how to play, there will be someone there to welcome you and show you around. There will even be bowls you can borrow, all you need is a pair of flat soled shoes – a sense of humour is also good!
