Prattens Bowls Club look toward Bowls Big Weekend

The Ladies team had two games this week which were both supposed to be ladies friendly matches but in both cases our opponents were short of players and had to include men to fulfil the fixture.

The first game was at home against Alexandra Park and they included two men, but Prattens won on two rinks and only lost by one shot on the third giving Prattens a win by 47-39. The second game was at Bloomfield who included three men and Prattens lost on two rinks while drawing on the third.

This weekend, both games were postponed due to teams not having enough players available. The first being a Men’s League game which was postponed by our opponents and the second being a mixed away game being postponed by Prattens.

I can only hope that this spate of teams being short of players is because of the time of year and not something that will continue all season but I think that, at present, there is no point in listing the games expected to be played.

However, Bowls England are holding what they call the Bowls Big Weekend and Prattens are taking part. This will take the form of an open day on Saturday, 28th May between 10am and 1pm. The purpose of this event is to give people the chance to try bowls and meet other people.

There is no age limit on people trying the game and those who might be interested should just come along (you will need some flat soled shoes – most trainers will be ok).

Prattens will provide bowls and assistance on the green. Tea and Coffee and biscuits will also be available and our bar will be in use. Graeme Smith
