Sad passing of Geoff Young.

The club have had the sad news of the passing of Geoff Young.

Geoff was a friend and former member of the C.U.P Bowls Club. He was a gentleman and well liked in the club.

We would like to pass on our condolences to his family and send our best wishes.

 

His funeral will be held at the West Chapel of the crematorium on the 4th of February 2021. Donations to the Alzheimers Society via Richard Stebbings Funeral Service.

Plans for the 2021 Season

After the unfortunate events of 2020 that put a stop to much of the competitive outdoor bowling, plans are underway to try and get going in 2021.

Many of the leagues and competitions are being rolled over and will run much as they would have done this season.

Obviously, competitions such as our Open Triples will be unlikely to go ahead as it is difficult to plan for the situation in the new season. However, we hope that bowls will resume in some form.

We wish all bowlers good health over the winter and hope to see you all in the New Year.

New Members

Here at the C.U.P Bowls Club we actively encourage new members to come and try the sport of lawn bowls.

We at the C.U.P provide a friendly, welcoming environment where beginners are encouraged and taught the basics and more experienced bowlers can develop their game, all with the option to enter county and national competitions.

We have sets of bowls and other equipment for bowlers to come and practice with. The only thing you need is flat shoes.
