We are from Sweden!

Abbas AngelsSome 85 members danced and sang to ABBA tribute band, ABBA’s Angels. What a fantastic night! Many members had raided their wardrobes to wear 70’s fancy dress from numerous ABBA outfits to Alice Cooper. The social committee would like to thank all members for their continued support of our social calendar and as we approach the end of the year, if there is anything you would like next year please let your social committee know.

Gloucestershire Sunday League Review 2019!

To round off the season on a high we played our final Sunday league game on Saturday 21st September  (rearranged) needing to win both rinks and by 9 shots to win the title. We did this in style with Nig Cansdale’s rink winning a close fought game 19-17 and Jim Luce’s rink putting on the style to win 38-7. Meaning we win the league on shot difference. Congratulations to all participating players throughout the season on achieving a first for Fairford. Unfortunately our B team have returned to division 4 have endured a competitive season. Go again next year boys!

Since entering the league 4 years ago our A team have finished as follows:

  • 2016 div 4 – runners-up
  • 2017 div 3 – Winners
  • 2018 div 2 – Winners
  • 2019 div 1 – Winners

This tops off another great outdoor season for Fairford Bowls Club!

 

 

Happy New Year!

Wow what a night! The New Years Eve party was packed and lively, enjoyed by some 70 or so members, friends and guests. Is there another club out there like us? I don’t think so! Many thanks to George and his helpers in the kitchen for providing the food and for Tim who certainly got the party rocking!

 

 

Heres to a fantastic 2019. May you all have a healthy, happy and successful year.

Gloucestershire Sunday League Review 2018!

The successful season continues! The ‘A’ team secured the 2nd division championship with a fine 6-0 win over at Stroud and our ‘B’ team saw off Cam Mills 6-0 at home in division 4 that guarantees at least the runner-up spot (we may win the 4th Division depending on other results) and promotion. Well done an thank you to all those who committed to play on Sunday mornings.

This tops off another great outdoor season for Fairford Bowls Club!
