EIBA TOP CLUB

This mixed competition was my brainchild. It was designed to compliment the amalgamation of the two indoor associations as well as compliment the other two National Top Club competitions that TLH sponsors.

Consultations with the EIBA started in 2008, and the competition was introduced into the 2009/10 National Bowling Calendar. 102 teams entered and TLH hosted the finals, which saw the last 8 play in a straight knockout to the winners.

Easter Bowls Festival

The Easter Festival is a great little tournament. It’s competitive, but it is very enjoyable. I was delighted to see that Wiltshire Youth had entered 3 teams – these youngsters are coached at Westlecot IBC in Swindon and they are a credit to their coach. Their behaviour and etiquette on the green is exemplary.
