VERWOOD BOWLING CLUB STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

Due to the unprecedented global situation and the advice received from the UK Government your committee have taken the decision to cancel all committee, members and social events until further notice.

This will include the TRY Bowls Recruitment Sessions and any scheduled coaching sessions.

At this moment in time our facilities will remain closed until government directives change. Keep updated by reading the Government Guidance which is updated regularly.

Keep safe, warm and as healthy as best you can. Should any member need assistance meanwhile please contact your bowls club colleagues or committee members who I am sure will do anything they can to assist.

Kind regards to all.

About Our Club

Verwood Bowling Club is a friendly Club open to members of all standards. The Club is progressive and is always looking to make improvements for the benefit of the members. If you are new to the game or want to start playing again, then we have experienced players on hand to offer support and tuition. If you are an experienced player looking for a new club we offer opportunities for competitive play in a number of leagues or Club tournements. Please go to the Contact Us page if you would like to make an enquiry about membership or if you would like more information about our Club.

We are a private club and our landscaped ground with green and clubhouse, is on the edge of Ringwood Forest and Verwood's Recreational Ground giving us a secluded and a great environment for bowling. Being close to Verwood town centre there is easy access to good coffee shops, banks and other general outlets for your convenience.

As well as Lawn Green Bowling, which is undertaken in the season between April - September, we organise a number of social events in order to enhance our enjoyment of the Club spirit away from the rivalry of league play and Club competitions. These run throughout the year making full use of our clubhouse during the season and the winter months. During the closed season we also have regular activities in our clubhouse including Whist Drives on Monday afternoons and Short Mat Bowls on Wednesday afternoon and Sunday morning for all playing and social members.

Our Club is very much self funding, and relies on various club events, social evenings and local fetes to top-up our annual membership subcriptions. We also actively pursue sponsorship from local businesses when the opportunity arises.

Our strong Club Managemnent Committee drives our activities and provides much of the manpower, along with other membership volunteers, in carrying out maintenance work on the green and clubhouse to keep our facilities in tip-top condition.

Our Social Committee arranges and organises the social events throughout the year as well as working closely with the Management Committee to help with Club activities associated with tournament play days, friendly matches and touring team matches.

Club Officers are elected or re-elected annually at the club AGM which is held at our clubhouse in October.

All members are encourage to get involved with the running of the club or if they wish to apply for election to Officer in order to help contribute in managing and driving the future of the club forward.

New members joining our club are encouraged to get involved in all of our organised activities throughout the season and the winter months: Roll-Ups, Friendly matches and Club Competitions throughout the summer months and throughout the winter months there are Social Events, Whist Drive afternoon and Short Mat Bowls in the Clubhouse.

League Play - where we stand

All playing members are encouraged to make themselves available for the various teams that we have competing in leagues and competitions throughout the season in order to maximise the Club's ability to be successful.

However, it is acknowledged, particularly for new bowlers, that confidence, as well as ability, plays a big part in competetive bowling. To provide match practise opportunities for all members, we run Club only competitions and tournaments throughout the season as well as Club "casual play" at least one evening each week when possible and sometimes on a Sunday morning.

The Club also organises a number of friendly games with either local or travelling bowling clubs throughout the season. Our Team Captains will take these opportunities to encourage players who wish to step up to participate in competeitve league standard games alongside some of our more experienced players.

We currently have opportunities for additional playing members, particularly those with experience, in order to enhance our team selections options for league games. Please go to the Contact Us page if you would like to make an enquiry about membership or if you would like more information about our Club.
