Cheltenham Area Civil Service Bowls Club has around 20 active members who take part in a variety of events.
There’s competition for those who like that sort of thing ranging from our own area events right up to National and Civil Service “International” level. In fact two of our members, Bill Notman & Campbell McColl (both Scots!), represented England at last year’s Civil Service Bowls International at Eastbourne and together with a colleague from Winchester won the British Isles Triples.
It isn’t all about competition however and for those who just prefer the social aspect of bowls there is a really good friendly match programme which takes place May through September arranged by the English Civil Service Bowling Association (ECSBA). ECSBA games are generally against other like-minded Associations including Gloucestershire and the Welsh & Scottish Civil Service.
If the idea of playing bowls tickles your fancy but you don’t know where to start, or you’d like to know a bit more about the game, then please either attend come along to the open day on May 6 or get in touch with Campbell McColl at email@example.com.
