50 Year Celebration Match with Bowls England

On the 4th August 2021 we played a special 50 year celebration mixed match at Kislingbury BC against a Bowls England President's team - led by BE President Paul Robson.

Before the match proper we had a spider contest with a prize of a bottle of whiskey donated by our President & Chairman Mike Sheahan - and won by one of our own bowlers Jo Gable (that's the second one she has won this year).

There followed a 6 - rink match against the visitors that included players of all ages from around the country and led by captain Richard Somerton (Bowls Northamptonshire Match Secretary). We won on one rink and managed to keep our losses down to a respectable level on the other 5 rinks.

For the 2022 season the club will open from the last week of April till the first week of October. Normal opening times are from 10am to about 10 pm for matches and casual play.

It is expected that our Friday evening get-together (6.30pm – 8.30pm) for drawn team play will continue.

All rinks can be played on (except those temporarily closed by the greenkeeper).

Members and visitors can continue to use the antibacterial gel on entering and leaving the site if they wish.

Changing rooms and toilets can be used as normal.
