COMPETITIVE BOWLING

If you’re looking to develop your bowls playing then the next step from social bowling is competitive bowling.
The Club fields teams in a number of the local bowls leagues – Peterborough (2 teams), Spalding (1 team) and Stamford (2 teams).
We also hold our own Club competitions.

Cup Competitions

The Claude Rolt Shield

This competition was set up by Bourne Bowls Club in memory of Claude Rolt, a well-loved character and long time member of the club who died in 2016.

The Shield is played for by Bourne, Carlby, Ryhall and Market Deeping Bowls Clubs. The winning club is presented with the Shield and the losing club with a wooden spoon!

Bourne won in 2019

The Willoughby Cup

Pairs (x4) – three woods – 21 ends – EBA Rules – 4 foot rule

This trophy was presented to Corby Glen Bowls Club in 1967 by Lady Ancaster. Since then it has been fought over annually, in a competition administered by Corby Glen, by clubs in the Grantham / Stamford area.

Bourne has a good record of winning this trophy although there has been a recent spell of several years where we were unsuccessful. However this was turned around in 2019 when Bourne won a close game against Great Gonerby Bowls Club in the final.

Ladies Pairs – Celia Pearson & Jean Middleditch

Ron & Gwen Neal Shield

3 players – 2 bowls  – 5 ends – EBF Rules

Everyone has a score card draw for teams. Play 5 ends keep your own score (as a running total like a league game) plus opposition score. Draw for teams again and repeat. It is 4 x 5 ends (20 ends on score card) then the individual with highest total ( i.e. shots for ) on card wins. In the event of a draw the lowest opposition score (shots against) on the card would win.

2019 winner – David Ashby
