~ Welcome to our Website ~
Welcome to the website of the Finchley and District Bowls Association. Here you will find the latest Prentice Cup league tables, how to contact our officers, the dates of the next association fixtures and meetings.
AS WE NEGOTIATE THE ROAD MAP TO EXIT LOCK-DOWN, THE GUIDANCE THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM BOWLS ENGLAND INDICATES THAT WE CAN PLAY SAFELY AND THAT THE OUTDOOR SEASON CAN BEGIN IN APRIL. WE EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO PLAY SINGLES, PAIRS, TRIPLES AND RINKS, WITH A MAXIMUM OF 24 PLAYERS ON THE GREEN AT ANY ONE TIME.
ON THIS BASIS, WE EXPECT TO SEE ALL OUR ACTIVITIES START IN THE 2021 SEASON - THE PRENTICE CUP COMPETITION, THE PRESIDENT'S CUP COMPETITION AND OUR CLOSED COMPETITIONS.
THE WEBSITE WILL BE UPDATED REGULARLY AS FURTHER GUIDANCE COMES DOWN FROM BOWLS ENGLAND.
From the President
I am both honoured and pleased to be your President in 2021. In these days of highly competitive sport, I hope that our Association will continue to flourish and provide our affiliated clubs with a vehicle for competitive bowls across our part of North London.
Having come through a year like no other, it will be a real pleasure to get out on the green and enjoy some bowls, whether social or competitive. I am sure that we have all missed the game and the camaraderie that it generates, and it will be good to get back to play.
I personally will continue to meet members of our affiliated clubs and encourage them to support the Association in our programme of competitive competitions planned for 2021. These give members the chance to meet and get to know a wider bowling community.
My nominated charity this year is MacMillan Nurses and I hope you will support this good cause by your club’s participation in the President’s Cup - a great tournament in itself!!
I wish you all good health and successful bowling, and I look forward to meeting you on the greens in the spirit of sportsmanship, goodwill and friendship. Let’s make 2021 a season to remember!!
