Woods Bowls Club Review of 2021

Review of 2021 Bowling Season at Woods

In Woods' review of 2021 Bowls' Big Weekend delivered

In their review of 2021, Woods Bowls Club recorded competitive success and growth in membership numbers!

Woods started playing competitive games against other clubs again in early May.  Then the focus was on their annual open day, which this year was timed to coincide with Bowls England’s ‘Bowls Big Weekend’.  The club even managed to feature on BBC Essex’s ‘The Quest’ on Sunday 23rd May by being the final destination; Barry & Liana made it in time to win their challenge!

Following this, the open day was a MASSIVE success with 50 people trying bowls out (they nearly ran out of Tea, cake and Bowls!) Around 30 people have now joined the club.
