Pelton Fell's Joan Brown represented Durham County in the Ladies singles and Senior singles competitions at the Bowls England National finals held at Leamington Spa. She fought her way through to the last 16 of the singles and to the quarter finals of the senior singles. In each case she lost to the eventual winner of the competition. Well done.
Pelton Fell won the NWD league cup on Sunday 5th September. Well done to everyone who took part. A great result and nice end to a good season.
Pelton Fell ladies teams have competed in 3 leagues this season. Sadly they came second in all of them. A good effort all round and roll on next year.
Durham and District finals day on Saturday 21st August saw some more success for Pelton Fell, on a slightly damp day. Jim Hutchinson and Malcolm Lusk won the pairs and Liam Hall, Malcolm Lusk and Keith Minnis won the triples. Well done to all.
More success for Pelton Fell. We won the Wednesday NWD league by 1 point from View Lane, and Dipton were 1 point behind them. Very well done to all of the players who have taken part and a great result for the club.
We are through to the NWD league cup final on Sunday September 5th. Sadly we lost our D&D millennium cup semi-final. However we will have teams playing on finals day in the Triples, Pairs and Mixed pairs competitions. Good luck to all involved.
On the last day of the Durham & District Saturday league we needed 3 points against Spennymoor to be sure of winning the league. We actually got 8. Very well done to everyone who has helped in any of the games. We also played the first of 2 games in the Friday South Tyne KO cup last night. On a tricky green at Jarrow we ran out winners by 90 - 43. We face Dunston next Friday in the final, probably at Lyndhurst. Good luck to the team. I hope to be able to report progress in the ladies leagues shortly when we get final confirmation of positions. Durham & District finals day next Saturday, so hopefully more chances for success.
Success for Pelton Fell Pelton Fell's Joan Brown won the ladies county singles competition today. She won her semi final this morning and held on to win the final after lunch. Both games were hard fought affairs which could have gone either way. Joan will now represent Durham county in the national finals at Leamington Spa in August. Well done and good luck.
Bowls' Big Weekend

Bowls is a sport for all, no matter what age, gender, or ability. It is good for exercise, social interaction, and fresh air. It can be played for fun just as much as it can be played seriously.

Update March 2021
Please see the statement from Bowls England on their website. In short, all National and County competitions are intended to go ahead this year, but with some revision to format and timing.
The club intends to take part in any leagues that go ahead provided that any ongoing restrictions can be complied with.
We intend to organise some internal club leagues to provide some focus for members until the formal leagues begin. I will let you know further details when they are available.
We hope to open the green shortly for casual play, when I have produced a policy document to cover the ongoing restrictions.
Stay healthy, stay fit, and stay safe. Brian
Pelton Fell ladies held a coffee morning on Tuesday 3rd March 2020, in Chester le Street chapel. This was in aid of their nominated charity for this year which is "Heel and Toe". This is a local charity based in Pelton which provides help and support for children suffering with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities. They did very well raising around £300. Well done to everyone who helped in any way.
During the winter months Carpet bowls is played in the club pavilion. Casual bowls sessions are held on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, and all are welcome. They also play in the Durham and District Carpet Bowls league. Why not come along and have a go.
Ladies Lady bowlers required to play in lady only, and/or mixed leagues, as well as national competitions. Come along and have a go.
The bowls pavilion is available to hire for private functions, email firstname.lastname@example.org for details
We had a visitor to Pelton Fell recently. This lady is the daughter of one of our lady members. She plays bowls at National level. So don't give me reasons why you cannot play bowls.
The park is run by volunteers. If anyone is interested and available to help opening the park gates during the summer months, then please get in touch
