Events Programme

The PLBC competition season of 2017 consists of

·        three “sponsored competitions”

·        five “singles competitions” for both Ladies and Gentlemen,

·        three “pairs competitions” for Ladies, Gentlemen and mixed gender pairs in the annual club championships.

·        a further five or six events also held during the season. 

In addition, every Friday afternoon a mixed gender “triples league competition” is organised, and on Wednesday evening’s a club night is held whereby a “roll up” is coordinated and where coaching in the game of Lawn Bowls can be experienced.

We have a membership of around the 50 mark comprising of both experienced and novice bowlers.

The club also have three indoor “short mats” and a mini competition is run throughout the winter period in a rented Salle de Fête, in Charras, a small village in the Dordogne.

Since 2013 many of the club members have been making up a tour party and have travelled to Spain, where they have played a series of matches against opposition from four different Spanish clubs.
