2010 Football World Cup

Also don’t forget we are following England’s road to the world cup in South Africa this summer so sit back and relax as we watch England take home the Gold. Fingers crossed.

Outdoor Bowling on the English Riviera

It is now the beginning of the outdoor season and TLH has broken all records with the numbers of outdoor touring sides coming to our Hotels in Devon this summer season.

It’s a busy time for everyone as the summer does seem to be short. National and County event have to be squeezed into an 11 week timescale if you want to qualify for the Nationals. This year my little team will be defending our County Triples title and also hoping to qualify for Leamington again, we are not fussy, any discipline will do as long as we get there again in something. It keeps our other halves and Mother’s happy as they get a small holiday into the bargain as well as watching us play our favourite sport. (Even my cats get a break, they to go to Moggy Heights for a few days allowing the slow worms and mice in the area to de-stress)

We also look forward to hosting the National Ladies Top Club of which 319 clubs from all over the County have entered.  Last year Kings BC, of Torquay were crowned champions and here they are celebrating.

In the men’s Top Club 706 entries were received by Bowls England.

Last year saw Boscombe Cliff BC take home the Champions Trophy, and here they are pictured with Laurence Murrell, TLH’s Managing Director.

worthing Outdoor Bowling on the English Riviera

TLH is proud to sponsor these two prestigious competitions and watches closely all the rounds leading up to the finals. Although not a bowler himself, Laurence is very knowledgeable on the subject of bowls and takes a great interest in all the events that TLH is involved with.

We would like to wish all the clubs (including my own – Newton Abbot) all the very best of luck for the Ladies and Men’s events this year. We look forward to seeing the successful finalists at TLH in September and at Worthing in August.

So Bowlers, wherever you are, have a great season out there on grass. Good luck in all your ventures.

If you want to talk to me about touring at TLH, Summer or Winter, please blog back to me or call me on 01803 400108. I will be pleased to talk to you about availability and what TLH can offer your group, whether you’re looking for a bowls holiday or just a bit of a game while you’re here.

If you want a WOW factor Bowls Holiday TLH is the place for you.

Alberts Bar Torquay – Latest News

Hello from everyone here at Alberts Bar. You certainly have been keeping us busy these past few weeks!

St Patrick’s Day was filled with locals and newcomers alike to get their mouth-watering pints of “cotton top”. Guiness certainly keeps to its slogan “bring it to life” as that’s exactly what happened in our pub!

The Six Nations Rugby was a huge succes for Alberts – the bar was full to bursting with Welsh, Irish, Scottish and English supporters – all cheering on their favourite teams!

We had a huge group of pub golfers in – including some of our staff members – for Chris Ball’s leaving do. Chris was our previous manager in Alberts. We have even had a stag do in with loads of “Robins” and the groom dressed as “Batman”! – So overall things in Alberts have been as crazy and enjoyable as ever!

As usual, you can catch all live sports here, including the much anticipated World Cup 2010. We’ve got Sky TV, a rather large projector, 3 HDTVs and a very good sound system – and a bar is always a bonus so you can watch the sports in all their glory.

Tasty Pub Grub is available between 12.00-2.30pm and 5.00-8.30pm. We even have happy hour between 5.00-7.00pm (Sun – Wed) and 5.00-11.00pm (Thurs). So how can you say no?

Hope to see you all again soon – Alberts – if you’re planning your holidays in Devon why be seen anywhere else!

However, when see our guests commenting on the standard of food they’ve experienced whilst staying at TLH Leisure Resort, it’s a great reward.
